The thing we conveniently call the internet, which is really just varying combinations of you, and me, and the phones and wires and media that are all connected by them, are owned and operated by very few people.

Netflix is not the problem — it’s even going to enjoy unlimited access to customers as part of Binge On, along with all the other big media brands that were called out by name today at T-Mobile's event. One of the worst possible worlds for the internet is one in which suits at companies like Comcast or T-Mobile have to meet in a boardroom before you’re allowed to experience something without limits.
