Here comes the proverbial "Consumer Choice": Which primary Internet package would you like: Google Plus, Microsoft Office with XBox Live, Facebook, or Yahoo? Do you need any specialty cloud services: Amazon, Dropbox, Spotify? Would you like full access to uncertified internet sites for an additional $15/mo?

You know what really scares me about this? I think a lot of Americans would be fine with this kind of internet. Why should their Facebook and Yahoo! news be slower just because transfire and kevando want access to every single possible thing on the internet?

Computer operating systems are increasingly closed to "uncertified" apps, so how long before "uncertified" internet sites are also closed?

That's what going on with the changes on Mexican laws, it let ISPs charge for 'premium' or content.
