The end of the internet?

A while back, I posted about Comcast playing games with internet users by blocking access to some sites and services without their knowledge or permission.

This whole thing is tied to the Net Neutrality issue.

Now, AT&T is saying the internet will CRASH by 2010 if they don’t invest $19 billion to fix it.  Of course, the next step is going to be recouping that money through “premium” services, charged directly to you and me.  The opposite of Net Neutrality.   Check out Yahoo Tech’s take here.

As an internet marketer, I’m going to be watching this issue VERY closely…and you should too.
