Netflix says ‘no rules’ would be better than FCC’s net neutrality proposal

Netflix filed a comment with the FCC yesterday strongly condemning the commissions new net neutrality proposal, which would allow internet service providers to offer so-called fast lanes to companies that can afford them. No rules would be better than rules legalizing discrimination on the internet, Netflix writes in a lengthy reply to the FCC. Netflix argues that the new rules will turn the goal of an open internet on its head, making the internet look more like the convoluted and stagnating cable TV landscape than the innovative and quickly developing platform that weve come to see the internet as. Allowing internet fast lanes, Netflix argues, would let service providers choose which websites, companies, and apps succeed online, rather than allowing consumers to choose as they do now.
