    the MBA tribes that run the US companies can only understand unfair monopolistic business practices - this will give them the short term cash back but inevitably they will fail

    Of course it is not desirable. This is just another thing that that fuckwit Drumpf has fucked up in the US. This is going into the courts for a legal battle.

    The decision was made by an FCC chairman who was a former lawyer who worked for Verizon. He had no business being appointed in the first place it was just another incompetent move by Drumpf and has cabinet of bozo's.

    I remember a previous FCC chairman during W's rule was a son of Colin Powell.

    However, such decisions are surely made by a higher authority in the deep state...

    The telcos paid the GOP for this decision, because now they can starting coining it.

    I would have thought even a retard like Jeff would be able to work that one out.

    The first casualty will of course be Xhamster, Youporn, etc. who apparently consume petabytes of bandwidth.

    There are going to be a lot of disappointed wankers in the US of A.
