This sounds like serious business. I hadn't heard that they gutted the 'net neutrality' law in the States. Like the article says, what happens in the States sooner or later happens here in Canada. The ramifications are pretty serious. If you can pay to make your website load faster and come first, how long before you can pay to have someone else's website disappear? Business's complaints of unfairness are so much more readily heeded than those of the consumer. Maybe it was always just pie in the sky...
