Time Warner Cable backtracks from evil cap plan

The power of complaining wins yet another battle.  MSNBC is reporting that due to public and political outcry Time Warner Cable is abandoning it's efforts to introduced metered and tiered internet services.  This is a big win for network neutrality as any limits on what, how much, and who on the internet violate the basic principles it was founded on.  This is like if your phone company sold you long distance service, but then told you if you make more than 20 calls a month, regardless of their duration they would start charging you an extra dollar per call.  People would never stand for it on the phone network, or road systems, but because normal people don't understand how the internet works, they assume that the providers will do the right thing.  History has proven time and time again that's just not the case.
