"US president-elect Donald Trump will appoint a new Federal Communications Commission chair in January. That chair will likely be inclined to undo the FCC's 2015 'Net Neutrality' power grab and, to at least some degree, let markets settle how bandwidth gets priced and who pays. Good. For the most part I'm no Trump fan, but Net Neutrality was a bad idea from the beginning -- half crony capitalism, half stalking horse for a future Internet censorship regime, all economic nonsense. If he nips Net Neutrality in the bud, Trump will have done America at least one favor." (11/28/16)
