No this isn't a joke. This is happening right now. Telcos Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and they few others have basically bought the internet from congress. If they get thier way the way the net has worked for years will be a memorey. They want to charge site an access fee to reach thier subscribers at the speed they currently do. Read more here. This is in congress right now.
