re: Net Neutrality Saved, But Who Cares?
"Under this model, the last mile carrier can manage traffic as much as it wants. If it's too onerous, it will lose customers to competitors. If middle mile providers are only in the business of providing middle mile bandwidth, then they have no incentive to engage in monopolistic manipulation of Internet traffic. Problem solved."
While I cannot say that your ideas are completely wrong, it seems they are formulated in a world were everyone plays by the rules, and as we have seen from Wall Street and many other companies, as soon as you create loopholes or supposed "no incentive" environments, there will be those who find an incentive (be it lie, steal, cheat, etc...) to do something that is wrong. I highly commend you to contact the FCC and more importantly Congress with your plan for unbundling, increasing Broadband choice, etc... See how badly they laugh at you for your "attempted manipulation of markets" and socialism (i.e. anti-capitalism) which appear to be the buzz words on the lips of so many politicians these days !
