Re: Lawmakers?
It's fascinating how long the court system takes to resolve complex policy issues like net neutrality... But I hope it's not really a "coin toss" and that there are actually deliberations that make the decisions go one way or the other.

Re: Lawmakers?
Interesting how "all agreed -- with varying degrees of certainty -- they would be victorious," a part of most court proceedings where the parties on each side express confidence they will come out victorious. Of course, in reality there's a winner and a loser, and going to court may well be a coin toss in most cases of some complexity, as most are in fact.

Re: Lawmakers?
I'm waiting for next-gen satellite internet to disrupt the telecom industry. LEO nanosatellites creating a mesh network could offer a viable alternative to fiber if these companies can get access to the wireless spectrum to handle the bandwidth.... 

Perhaps autonomous drones will be able to do the same thing, but the FAA doesn't seem to be in any hurry to making rules that might fill the skies with robot planes.

Re: Lawmakers?
It's too bad that everything has to be so politicized now with the powers that be looking after their own agenda instead of what's best for the people. I think you have a great solution though it would still probably be litigated all the way to the supreme court. 

All I know is that internet prices continue to go up and average families will eventually be priced out of the market if something isn't done. IMO

Lawmakers?
The courts will definitely take a long time to resolve this issue -- assuming the courts ever actually do. The only real solution is for lawmakers to make it clear, so that the FCC can't make its own policy that changes as its chairperson changes....
