Massive companies like AT&T and Comcast have spent the first two months of 2014 boldly announcing plans to close and control the internet through additional fees, pay-to-play schemes, and sheer brutal size — all while the legal rules designed to protect against these kinds of abuses were struck down in court for basically making too much sense.

I’m fortunate enough to live in one of the small pockets of the country where there is a choice (Tacoma has its own broadband) but what a depressing situation.

John Gruber rightly notes what a disappointment the Obama administration has been on net neutrality.
