    Probably won't happen, but it would be beautiful irony if Netflix throttling kills the Comcast-TW deal.

    Lots of big news today on the NN front.

    The FCC is going to push to regulate the net as a utility. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/03/te...mid=tw-nytimes

    They're also going to go after state laws prohibiting municipal Internet. http://www.engadget.com/2015/02/02/f...roadband-laws/

    I have no idea if you're joking or if this is actually a petulant TWC pulling a power move.

    A friend of mine who works local government was at the FCC meeting today in support of Wilson and their fight against the state ISP law.

    Pretty much anybody with an internet based business who doesn't want to bow down to Verizon, TWC, and that ilk.
