I
hear conflicting opinions.

Some say that's
it's impossible. Some say the worst that can happen is that it ends
up being a two tier system.

Well, presently
Media giants are negotiating their way around the Net neutrality
bill by proposing the 'Two tier system' tactic. Two tier would mean
that you wouldn't get full access to web sites that aren't owned by
corporate media giants unless you purchase their premium package
and that access to those 'other' sites would still be difficult
& slow with the info transfer rate being very limited. They
won't be able to utilize the newer faster broadband
width.

I say that's it's
a prelude to squeezing out free speech/ unfiltered info (in other
words - the Truth!)& making billions more by basically
monopolizing the internet.

I
learned about "internet2" in one of my classes. The textbook (the
one we used)glossary has this deffinition:

"Internet2; A
project of a consortium of more than 100 universities with
government and industry partners to create a separate Internet to
meet academic needs in research, teaching, and lerning."

A quote from the
section of the book states that " key boal is to acelarate the
diffusion of advanced Internet technology, in particular into the
commercial sector. In this way, Internet2 will help to sustain
United States leadership in Internet working technology. Internet2
wil benefit non-university members of the educational community as
well, especially K-12 and public libraries." (Internet2b,200, para
10).

Now that sounds
great to me!

...but then again,
I my first Social Security card had "not to be used for
identification purposes" written on it -- and there are other
things that we were told would be the case and now we know that the
case is different, so who knows?

Maybe this guy
does.http://www.publicknowledge.org/node/497
