The internet, as it is currently known and used, is about to die.
Comcast is currently undergoing a legal motion in the DC Circuit Federal Court to void a previous FCC nondiscrimination act. This would allow companies like Comcast, AT&T, Verizon and others to essentially decide what websites work through their service and which ones don't.
