It's a confusing time for net neutrality legislation. Since the FCC voted to repeal Title II protections for the open web in December, a lot of solutions are being thrown around. One good rule is to never trust any arguments presented by telecoms. Alas, on Wednesday, AT&T issued a laughable statement saying it supports net neutrality, but it might need "fast lanes" to keep self-driving cars from slamming into each other.

If all goes as the USbFCC's Republican commissioners planned, December 14 will be known as the day that net neutrality died in the US. But thanks to the mercifully slow gears of the federal bureaucracy, big changes don't happen immediately. On Thursday, the US Federal Communications Commission's repeal of net neutrality protections is scheduled to hit the federal register. Sixty days later, it will be official. But there's a lot happening in the meantime.
