The tel-com companies want to end "net neutrality". What this means is that they will be able to "Sell" their bandwidth to BOTH end users AND content providers.

In plain english, what this means is sites that do not pay a premium will load slower than those that pay up.

This will cause a ton of problems for blogger.com. They might have to become a pay service, or else your blog may load super slow.

The more things change, the more they stay the same: we used to get TV free but only got about five channels. Now we pay a big cable bill and get 50 channels or more, but only watch about five of them at most. Blogger will definately start charging us, just like Geocities since Yahoo (at&t) took over.
