The argument by the Open Internet Coalition, that Internet service providers do not provide information services, is bogus. According to the Telecommunications Act of 1996, an information service is defined as offering the capability for generating, acquiring, storing, transforming, processing, retrieving, utilizing, or making available information via telecommunications.
Last time I checked my information service provider was doing all this via digital subscriber line service. They do more than just connect me to some amorphous cloud. Granted, connectivity is an important part of the service, but it is the availability to get and exchange information that provides access services their value.
In other words, so what if they provide fast connectivity. If I wanted a fast bridge to no where, I would have bought a bridge in Alaska.
