Microsoft along with other web companies has raised their concerns about the new FCC rules that will allow network providers like AT&T to sell prioritized service to content companies like Netflix. Microsoft and other web companies are arguing that this rule would enable phone and cable Internet service providers to discriminate both technically and financially against Internet companies and to impose new tolls on them.
