Netflix and Google Inc’s YouTube alone are estimated to account for more than half of all downstream Internet traffic at peak hours.

…and the other half is porn.

I am all for net neutrality in general… however I question the proposition that businesses and heavy bandwidth users should be able to utilize virtually unlimited amounts of bandwidth at little or no cost to them. IMHO a fee-base approach to bandwidth on a sliding scale with a geometric curve would solve a lot of problems on the Internet – including spam problems.

Access to any part of the internet utilizing the “Public Domain” in all of its legal senses should be required to do a number of things. Equal access to all should only be a small part. Privacy should be required and the requirement for a per case, paper, manually signed sworn warrant from a real court, not some Star Chamber administrative body calling itself a “court” subject to the search warrant requirements in the Constitution, as all are and have been since 1789.

If they do not want to play, put all FCC granted licenses for the “Mother Ship” under a very, very thorough and strict review. We cannot have public property mismanaged by organizations that do not follow the letter of their agreement with the People of the USA, whatever one or more of their so-called “servants” says. Judges who find new meaning fir what the meaning of “is” is should be not only cashiered but imprisoned.

We have runaway Government and courts competitive in integrity to those of the Central African Republic. Enough corruption!
