The FCC is losing the power to regulate the Internet

As the New York Times points out, if the FCC cannot ensure that all bits on the web get treated fairly, we run the risk of ending up with a limited internet experience. One defined by the company that we purchase our connectivity from. This trend is especially apparent on mobile devices, where companies like Apple prevent the sale of applications that compete directly with services that they offer. It would be a real shame if the entire Internet went this way.
