"The FCC claims it will still have the ability to stop "commercially unreasonable" activities by broadband providers, while refusing any attempt to explain what commercially unreasonable means. At the same time, it makes it pretty clear 'commercially reasonable' (again, undefined) rules will be allowed -- and it's likely this means allowing ISPs to create 'fast lanes' by which they can charge more, so long as anyone with a lot of cash can also pay more. [...] If you have a fast lane, by definition you also need a slow lane. So the (reasonable) fear here is that smaller entities, who can't pay for the fast lane, basically start out with degraded service compared to the big guys who can (and will) pay. That means services that don't pay up are throttled." (Techdirt):
