Skype's take on the Net Neutrality ruling.. or lack thereof.

From the Ars article:

Skype's Christopher Libertelli, who said after today's vote, "In any complicated FCC rulemaking, there are going to be trade-offs and compromises. On balance, this decision advances the goal of keeping the Internet an open and unencumbered medium for Skype users."

Um, what??? I suppose this is true if your definition of unencumbered means you are on say a mobile device, accessing the web through 3G or LTE or if your ISP decides that Skype video is too bandwidth intensive and charges your for less latency..

Hire better lobbyists next time Skype.
