Re: What is the problem?
"The 2015 Open Internet Order does that by effectivly saying that Basic Internet Access Service is Best Effort, while other, non-BIAS services can also be offered (with a few limitations) on the same access."

Yes I generally think there was a lot of misinformation out there regarding what the rules actually prohibit, with some carriers even going so far as to claim the rules ban prioritized delivery of sensitive medical machine data (they don't).

Re: Cycle...
Except that the presumed ansswer is not going to work as a business.  This notion of "assursed service" as a mobile operator is absurd. No OTT vendor is going to pay more unless it is really assured.  Okay now back up to what that means.  It means that there is an enforceable SLA (which they will measure for as well).  By enforceable that means that it will be a correctable breach of contract (say with refunds/penalty payments). 

What people keep forgeting is that the better QoS involved will not be universally available.  So, if you are an OTT provider you have to build a business around the fact that it is not available.  The better quality network will only be useful as an upsell.  The upsell will only work if it ALWAYS works for any end customer of the OTT service.  So, do mobil operators want to supply maximum data rate to say 100% of the US (like say the Top of Mount Shasta)?  If not, then the service is of limited value to an OTT provider who is trying to serve a very broad audience on multiple providers.  

We need to stop taking an inside out view of the services (Hey we could do this and charge for it.) and take an outside in view of the services (How could we make Netflix's service better and Netflix make more money and move more customers to their service.).  Only then will we build a service that the OTT providers want to buy.

Re: Cycle...
I'm often reminded of the little boy who cried 'wolf'.  The problem is what will happen if the wolf actually shows up.

Cycle...
We keep repeating this cycle in which carriers claim they can't upgrade their networks if (regulation X) is passed, yet that always winds up being a bluff, and networks are upgraded because it's necessary. I understand the worry that bad regulations can potential harm revenues, but not all regulations are bad, most net neutrality regulations have been too lenient if anything, and this is a cycle of bluffing and hysteria that I find exceptionally dull.

Re: What is the problem?
But how can I possibly afford to binge-fly in first class every day if I have to pay first-class prices???  And is it fair that airlines reduce leg room in coach to accommodate large first-class seats that fold out into beds?  #AirNeutrality #CaviarNeutrality #WineNeutrality #DedicatedFlightAttendantNeutrality #LuggageLosslessAirCompression

Re: Net neutrality doesn't apply to wireless internet
While wireless services were exempt from some net neutrality regulations imposed by the FCC in 2010, the new regulations adopted in 2015 apply equally to wired and wireless broadband internet access services.

What is the problem?
This does not have to be a problem if net neutrality regulations are written wisely, to permit CSPs to offer different classes and levels of service so long as they make that service available to everyone at the same price. 

Airlines are free to offer first class seating, so long as they sell those seats to anyone able to pay the premium.

Wireless carriers are exempt from net neutrality, at least in the US.
