Do you know whos not a fan of the Federal Communication Commissions proposal to let internet service providers offer different speeds to online services? Major League Baseball. In a letter to the FCC last week, the leagues digital group argued that the most recent open internet proposal could do more harm than good to consumers and upstart businesses, and likened the move to rolling the dice. Fast lanes would serve only one purpose: for Broadband ISPs to receive an economic windfall, the league wrote in a letter to the FCC last week. American consumers would be worse off as the costs of fast lanes are passed along to them in new fees or charges where there were none, or higher fees or charges where they existed. It went on say that the changes would make it more difficult for start-up entrepreneurs and innovators that want to build things.
