California's net neutrality bill poses the "federalist" question as to whether the states will take back the issue
Cecilia Kang has a long article “California bill sets up a fight on net access” Saturday, Sept. 1, here. As of the time of writing, Gov. Jerry Brown had not yet signed it.
The bill apparently gave net neutrality “activists” all that “they” were seeking. Telecoms apparently cannot offer free streaming for apps, out of apparent deference to smaller publishers that don’t have the pull to offer the same. Normal streaming services would be offered at the same quality. Telecoms did not get some contingent capacity to throttle in the future if they wanted to.
