Looks like Apple will be boarding the ISP gravy train.

That is too bad. It is going to undermine Netflix's efforts to fight it.

I believe that battle was lost when they agreed to pay Comcast for faster streaming.

I thought their motive was to see that the customers didn't suffer the slow speed while they were fighting the battle and so paid the ISPs and were trying to fight it at the same time. I had some hope then. But, if big companies that have leverage start paying that battle will be lost for sure.

The battle was lost long before that. If this whole situation was road that ended at a cliff, you could see that cliff 3 to 4 years ago, the car is slow moving it took awhile, but it got there and there was no road extension.

In legal terms it ended when FCC chairmen Tom Wheeler refused to take the courts suggestion and re-classify ISP's as telecoms.

So basically ISP's are going to throttle anyone that doesn't pay up for content delivery. That sucks

They can, but it's the major players they want compensation from.

Changing the ISP's status would be an open invitation to local governments to crank up the tax machine.

I don't believe implementing Title II of the Communications Act of 1934 would necessarily treat ISP's as just another utility. Also, the FCC is only considering to enforce those sections that apply to broadband. http://www.dailydot.com/politics/wha...eutrality-fcc/ Whats really interesting is that Verizon Fios had already been classified by Title II in several jurisdictions, but never bothered to submit that information when they filed their DC law suit. The FCC was never made aware of this and it may have had a significant impact on the courts decision. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/bruce-...b_5602393.html

I wonder how effective this will be.

I'd gladly pay more for service level guarantees.
