Verizon switch is proof that Net neutrality legislation is not needed

Verizon originally rejected Naral text messages, as Tim notes below, but it quickly changed its tune when the news became public. That’s because there is competition in the marketplace and public pressure made Verizon act faster that it probably has on any other issue in the last year. This is one more example of why Net neutrality advocates should relax and focus their efforts on problems that actually exist, such as the waste and corruption in the Universal Service system.

Also, I have been meaning for a while to post PRI’s new paper on Net neutrality, so here it is.
