Network neutrality set-back

by Frank Paynter on June 9, 2021

Declan McCullough writes about yesterday’s House rejection of net neutrality.  He quotes Representative Markey, whose amendment offered the best hope for maintaining an IP  commodity market unpolluted by monopolistic practices:

“The future Sergey Brins, the future Marc Andreessens, of Netscape and Google…are going to have to pay taxes” to broadband providers, said Rep. Ed Markey, the Massachusetts Democrat behind the Net neutrality amendment.

This matter, the shifting of tax burden from payments to government to assure decent public services in fair markets to payments to corporations to fund infrastructure “adjustments” that are best for the stockholders, deserves a closer look.
