Seriously, if what you are saying is true, why do HFT purveyors need their servers right next to the exchange servers? If all they are doing is increasing liquidity, why do they need to intercept information before anybody else sees them?
HFT needs to be shut down. All it does is suck profit from small investors.
That was the case for WP as well, but carriers balked since their warranties were considerably shorter. This change is being made so that the OS support is consistent with the device warranties.
It used to be that all Windows OS got 5 years of support. That was the case for Windows Phone 7. But that was not popular with the wireless carriers as their device warranties only lasted 18 months and did not want the hassle of updating their devices beyond that point.
Microsoft is making this change so that the OS support is consistent with the device warranty.
If you want to complain, complain to the carriers.
