Net Neutrality

Well, the FCC has taken the steps necessary to try and maintain Net Neutrality of the Internet.

Of course the Republicans and a number of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are saying their going to fight it tooth and nail. Of course the under 80 IQ trailer park Republican base is cheering them on.

Wait until the yokels can't get to their porn any more.

This one strikes me as a no brainer. The very idea of allowing an ISP to regulate who gets to use the bandwidth THAT I'M PAYING FOR to provide content is insane.

That's basically the ability to determine what people can access.

Consider two shopping sites one of which pays for extra bandwidth and one which can't afford to. The site with the extra bandwidth is going to be faster and easier to use.

Which one would you use assuming the prices were comparable?

How long do you think it will be before they drive the slow internet competition out of business and get to raise their prices?

Verizon says they will sue the FCC. I think we should tell Verizon that no Net Neutrality, no Verizon customers.
