This is really terrifying but what do we do about it? How do we stop it?

At this moment in my country, 2 phone providers publicly said they use Deep packet inspection to analyze data traffic. This is worrying me since that method also allows for more than just analyzing the sort of data, but also the contents. I don't want a private company to have easy access to the porn I send to other people.

This is a thinly veiled attempt to break the ice on government involvement in the internet. It has nothing to do with equality, it has everything to do with control.

How many of you have had problems with your ISP blocking content? Liberals are suggesting a fix to a problem that doesn't even exist, taking the situation way out of context in an attempt to scare people into allowing the government to impose regulations on the internet... and you can bet the government can`t wait to get its grubby fingers on the net, now that it knows how much influence it has.

LazyMe: That is why there are anti-trust laws. At&t was broken up many years ago in order to foster competition, but they've re-consolidated again somewhat.

... Of course even that is not necessary so long there are enough ISPs and people have the choice to go with one with consistent speeds.

Except that there are too few ISPs, and they're all massive and half way monopolized.

So... government intervention where the market fails!
