Repeal of Net Neutrality

The FCC is poised to "deregulate" internet access by repealing the net neutrality rules. In the name of "deregulation," the FCC will permit private regulation of what we can access. The door is also opened to provide tiered service -- the $30 bundle; the $60 bundle; and the $90 dollar bundle or whatever number the provider attaches. It looks like internet providers will now have two streams of income -- one from the us users and another from websites that seek preference. Anyway you look at it, we users will come out losers.

Repeal of Net Neutrality

Regulating the web under the pretense of corporations throttling and controlling access is dishonest. How much has the government helped the power grid, Telephone or any infrastructure. They live in comfy million dollar houses though.

Crooks and thieves will stop crooks and thieves.

They see a tax revenue and want in. Like the freeloading ticks they are.

I think you will come to regret this comment when you find out what limits are placed on your access for a price from the private sector.

Bad idea.

Doubt it

Windstream tried that throttling crap and got sued. Had to upgrade everyone by court order.

On what basis would they get sued after elimninating net neutrality regulations? You are applauding the elimination of the rules that prevent such an occurance.

They want nets ,alot of nets, to pull up all those trillions of dollars the marketing giants digest over this fat cow.It will only sicken our need for an alternative source ,which maybe already in the works .Alot of smoke and mirrors folks are played upon us through what we really dont pay much attention too ,commercials .You need this are want that ,its all subject to how its feed to you the consumer .We need to start by pin pointing the directive.If marketing giants want to use the govt to take the NET and dice it up,UNITE AGAINST PRODUCTS that do business in this commerce before its in place.We are already screen pinged all the time with adds ,look at your monitor screen as it is right know ,the cost of that add you see will be paid to a group and you are aware know what its all about ,$$$$$.All sites have embraced this over the years,its part of the highway now ,the new part is they want you to pay for the roadsigns.

Can you specify some of these lies?

A breach of contract means their legal team didn't write their terms well. If they are already trying to throttle, do you think their terms and conditions v.2 doesn't have a few edits in it? You can't be this naive.

Repeal of Net Neutrality

They oversold their network. Throttled their modems. I was in in the suit. Your the naive one thinking NN is for our own good.

For you to say a breach of contract means their lawyers wrote it up wrong implies it was a scam and they just happened to get caught.

Im sure they have written their new contract ironclad but the damage has been done. Their name is Mudd. Comcast is building as is ATT. They had it sewn up and the free market set them straight.

Their new contract states speeds up to xxx *

*Network traffic permitting

Still doesnt mean they are litigation proof like our government is.

You seriously think letting a corrupt government control a corrupt corporate base is solving anything? You know "providers" will provide what the market demands. This NN locks out competition and converts the internet into a good ole boy network.
