Net Neutrality:Where's the Rules?

It’s been about a week alread after the FCC voted on the Net Neutrality rules. As yet we’ve been unable to see them so much of what has been written has been speculation. I suspect that the delay of making the rules available to the public is that they must be released in print from the Government Printing Office as they are released in PDF form online. I believe this has happened before.

Of course the telecoms aren’t happy. They don’t want to be regulated but be free to soak you for as much as they can get away with. And if they pass on the cost of regulation perhaps we should support attempts for your local community to build it’s own municipal system. The Internet should be in the commons anyway since it is a “highway.”

And why is it that companies hire CEOs who behave like 5 year olds when they don’t get their way? That’s very strange behavior.
