Comcast Charging Netflix A Fee To Deliver Movies

-- by Dave Johnson

Netflix Partner Says Comcast Fee 'Threatens' Open Internet - NYTimes.com,

Level 3 Communications, an Internet networking company that recently signed a deal to deliver movies to Netflix customers, said Monday that Comcast has effectively set up a tollbooth around its broadband Internet network.

This is what is coming if the FCC or Congress doesn't require "Net Neutrality."

Worse, Comcast, ATT and others can stop letting their internet customers get to websites like DailyKos, Redstate or others that take political positions they don't like, or that might threaten their profits -- like advocating for Net Neutralty. Unless you think that giant corporations won't use their power to do things like that.
