I hate to say I told you so

The Senate Committe on Commerce, Science and Transportation is considering ammending the 1996 telecomunications act in the states to end “network neutrality”. This would allow telcos to charge you a different rate depending on the kinds of things you do on the net. Eg. Pay more if you’re using VoIP or filesharing.

I talked about the VoIP thing in this article: Why iTalk?

Bill Thompson talks more about, Why the net should stay neutral on his BBC blog.
