Any chance the citizens will prevail  over the industry with insiders  
like this?

Probably not. The various factions of the public actively arguing or  
following the net neutrality issues represent a minority of the voters. A  
suitable constituency can be assembled who care nothing more that whether  
cat videos will still be available on their mobile devices.


As long as the industry can promise them that, they will vote as they are  
told.

That means they've already made their decision and are going through
the motions of pretending to be "fair and equitable".

Yes and the deal has already been struck.  The FCC leaked that they're
reconsidering redefining what is broadband:
<http://news.yahoo.com/fcc-may-redefine-means-broadband-internet-100200920.html
This is important because the likely outcome will be a definition that
is slightly above the highest speeds that can be provided by ADSL2+.
Then, all they have to do is reinstate net neutrality for the slower
"legacy" services, and perpetuating the myth that anything faster is
an "information service" not covered by net neutrality.

This is just one of several scenarios that might results from the
fancy foot shuffling.  It really depends on what kind of deal the FCC
made with the big ISP's (AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon).  There's no way
these powerful companies are going to allow net neutrality to be
reinstated without some kind of quid pro quo.  I'm fairly sure it's a
done deal by now, but I don't have any information on what it entails.
One thing for sure, the consumer will somehow end up paying for the
exercise in higher monthly charges.

Hint:  Comcast didn't spend $18.1 million on lobbying and expect to
get nothing in return.

Bottom line:  We're screwed.

*which* "net neutrality?"
Fair question as both pro and anti hands off has been marketed at "net  
neutrality", you have to read the fine print or go into the background to  
find the real meanings these days.

This isn't the first time that the title of a law (or rule - a law by
a different name) is pure doublespeak.

   Your answer lies in the correct interpretation of the Golden Rule,
