WASHINGTON — Verizon says it has filed a court challenge to new federal regulations that prohibit broadband providers from interfering with Internet traffic flowing over their networks.

In its court filing, Verizon argues that the FCC overstepped its authority in adopting the regulations.

Very interesting. We'll see where this leads.

Providers of internet service do just that, they provide the link to the net. Nothing more. They should not have ANY authority over what comes across that link.

Amen. We pay for internet service. We should get just that. Nothing more nothing less.

I used to think Verizon was awesome. No way I'll get FiOS if they do this.

That logic is somewhat flawed. Let's say I own a toll road and I charge 5$ for one car to pass. If someone wanted to bring large semi truck carrying tons of hazardous material I should have the right to charge him more than I would an average car. With the laws of net neutrality I have no right to charge him extra and he is entitled to pass for the simple 5$ fee as well, even though his load taxes my road much more heavily and carries with it significantly higher risk.

It's the exact same scenario with net neutrality really. Substitute Verizon's network for the road. You don't own Verizon's network. They do. They allow you to use it for a fee. You use it on their terms. If you don't agree to their terms no one is preventing you from finding a different network.

Even without the FCC rules, it should have been sold as "partial internet access" and never just Internet access.

Looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

Technically they're right, but I really hope this gets shot down. Far too big of a slippery slope that'll wind up screwing up the internet as we know it.
