    Craig Aaron misrepresented Title II saying that broadband was always under Title II. Title II only covered telco wiring and DSL switches at one time, but it never covered Telco Internet service and never covered cable broadband Internet or wiring at any time.

    Craig Aaron claims that specialized services should be illegal because it allows Internet application and Internet service differentiation which he paints with a broad “discrimination” stroke. Yet we have IT differentiation, server differentiation, Internet differentiation via private lease lines or private Internet infrastructure (e.g., Google owns 7% of the Internet), Internet differentiation via content delivery networks.

    With all these gross misunderstandings of how the Internet works, no wonder the Free Press brand of “Net Neutrality” makes absolutely no sense.
