Last month, former labor secretary Robert Reich wrote a funny post about network neutrality:
If the phone and cable companies get their way, it will take you five minutes to download this blog. In fact, you can forget blogs altogether. In fact, you can forget anything put into the Internet by small guys like me (literally and figuratively)…
The phone and cable companies want to charge content providers depending on how fast and reliably their content is delivered–so, say, eBay, Yahoo, and Google pay a bundle for first-class fast service while you and I and the other millions of small guys who want to put stuff up are shoved into the slowest of slow lanes because we can’t afford to pay the freight.
I wonder if Reich realizes his blog is hosted by Google.
