There's one thing I don't understand: how can they determine what is
"internet service"? It's one thing if they just want to stop using flat
rate tariffs and another if they want a "modem tax".
IMO, "modem tax" is unenforceable without wiretaps.
Maybe it's for the better: the whole internet hysteria will stop, web
will die etc etc.
