Netflix had a very good showing on Monday, winning 23 Emmy Awards and tying longtime Emmy-winning powerhouse HBO. Netflix, an over-the-top streaming service, claimed 112 nominations this year, four more than its premium pay-TV channel rival HBO, which had dominated the Emmys for nearly two decades. Although the Emmy wins were good news for Netflix, other recent news has been far less rosy. The largest U.S. telecom companies have been slowing mobile Internet traffic to and
from Netflix and other services, including YouTube.

The broadband providers aren't just throttling consumer video downloads. Recently Verizon throttled communications among California first responders at the height of the recent wildfires due to "excess data usage," putting those first responders and their constituents at considerable risk. That is not merely a violation of net neutrality principles, it is evil. Verizon has apologized and promised never to do it again, but that is small consolation to the firefighters who were at risk or the property owners who suffered monetary damages that could have possibly been prevented with faster response times.
