@Hailey , In the near term...Looking at the way our dysfunctional congress is working is by executive actions of president. Both house and senate being controlled by republicans, democratic President can expect least support from them only any issues. If republicans are not for net neutrality...then we can conclude that they are getting a lot of money from crony capitalists. With such a huge amount of Political corruption in US democracy, I also agree that such critical issues should not be decided by Politicians. Politicians should take opinion of their electorate to make these decisions. But, Polticians tak opinion of lobbyists. It is just too much complicated issue. I wonder when will free market economy come back so that prosperity does not depend on government intervention into economy. Let us see what EBN bloggers have to say about it?

@gippatel, What path do you think can be taken to guarantee net neutrality? Is there a clear path or is this something that remains unevolved yet?

@Apek, how do you see this situation evolving in the near term? This topic is all over the headlines lately.

@FlyingScott, these areas certainly need oversight. I'm not convinced that the government is the right organization to do it. :)

As compared to what U court of Appeals did, Obama seem to be wiser in his decision.

Yes, I agree that net neutrality is essential on many levels. However, the move by the Obama Administration to classify internet providers under the same laws as the telecom companies-- the very ones that you complain about as being the model for what we shouldn't have-- makes zero sense. Don't be fooled-- this move does nothing to guarantee net neutrality, but instead will cause the same fate to befall the internet providers that you rightly rail against for the telecoms.

Agree with you. The only thing is today trust in government is at lowest level. Hence, Although I agree with president Obama in his decision, it is possible to have self regulated economy such that government intervention is at its lowest

Government and regulations are not all bad.  If we let the IoT become like the wild west then chaos will ensue.  We do need regulators to enforce some rules so I0T evolves in a safe, fair and profitable manner.  Everything should not be driven purely for individual gain as we also need to think of the greater good.
