The net neutrality regulations are directed at protecting consumers from corporate predatory behavior. Many ISPs have been trying out bandwidth capping/limits, tiered pricing dependent on bandwidth usage, blocking competing technologies/companies' content, etc. We know from past experience that not regulating corporations simply allows them to exploit consumers and in some cases, actually endangering consumers. Most recently, the unregulated banking industry.
In very simple terms: What Obama is after is protecting your internet access and the fees you pay for it. What KBH is after is not giving a crap if your bandwidth is capped at half what it is today and your bill doubled in the bargain.
Kay Bailey doesn't know bandwidth and capping from hair accessories. She's launched the sorriest campaign for guv down here that this poor state has ever seen. If she wasn't after Guv GoodHair's job? We wouldn't have heard a brain dead peep outta her on this subject.

I'm not much for more new laws either but the corporations do want to take us for a ride on this. They got everybody on the high speed bandwagon for cheap, but now want to rake us over the coals with capping, and offering the real high speed to business class customers only. They need to be regulated or we'll lose.
