Free Data Isn’t Free

It’s unclear how a government agency giving large companies a clear advantage could enhance competition. And the very idea of the FCC reversing course on net neutrality regulations bears some very grim consequences for the average internet user. Not far off could be the reintroduction of paid-prioritization, where service providers charge companies to move their data (and only their data) to the end user faster. Of course, those costs would inevitably trickle down to the consumer, making internet access more cumbersome and expensive. – Adam Clark Estes, Gizmodo
