Well that blows.

This is really silly. Eventually all big sites will pay for the "fast lane" basically separating the web into two factions. Commercial sites and free/non-profit sites. The only thing it accomplishes is that it puts more money in the pockets of ISPs while potentially worsening the experience for users and making it harder for small companies to innovate.

Ah, but these are the revised rules where the FCC promises to keep a n eagle eye out for abuse (by any big businesses that failed to donate sufficient funds to the administration's campaign :-).

This country's governing institutions are a bad joke. The transition from democracy to oligarchy is proceeding swiftly.

Actually the FCC voted to seek public comment on two different approaches. The FCC Chairman favors the fast-lane approach. But to be clear, neither approach has been approved. Later this year, the FCC will do a real vote and choose which to pass.

Actually, no they didnt. What they did was vote on allowing the current draft to be opened for public comment for the next 60 days on two options, fast lanes or not. After that, then they vote to whether ratify it or not after accounting the public comments before one of the options becomes legal.

go comment, write your congressman and what not before net neutrality dies, which at this point, it hasn't yet.
