Tens of thousands sign petitions concerned about the further corporatization of the Internet - Yesterday, the FCC voted to begin considering plans to allow “internet fast lanes,” which would essentially give cable providers (e.g. Time Warner, AT&T and Verizon) the ability to give preferential treatment to certain web services, such as Skype, Facebook and Netflix, based on premiums paid for high-speed delivery of their content.

“This new economy will undoubtedly result in less choice for consumers and lead to what may be termed the ‘televization’ of the internet. In other words large players like NBC and Disney will effectively monopolize the medium as they now do with cable and broadcast television,” Infowars reported yesterday.
