Submission + - FCC Chair: it's Ok to Discriminate Traffic 2

sl4shd0rk writes: Remember when the ex-cable lobbyist Tom Wheeler was appointed to the FCC chair back in may of 2013? Turns out he's currently gunning for Internet Service Providers to be able to "favor some traffic over other traffic". A dangerous precedent considering the Open Internet Order in 2010 forbid such action if it fell under unreasonable discrimination. The bendy interpretation of the 2010 order is apparently aimed somewhat at Netflix as Wheeler stated: "Netflix might say, 'I'll pay in order to make sure that my subscriber might receive the best possible transmission of this movie.'"
