    Sometimes I wish there was no internet, no mobile phones, missing the old school days, but it's not gonna happen anytime soon, so I get back to work.

    Some of the people on top are pieces of trash. Heartless, evil men who only care about more power for themselves.



    I was worried about net neutrality before too, let's hope they come to there senses. Man, what the fuck.

    We see how Tell-a-vision brainwashes people. I guess TPTB see the Internet as the last source of free thinking individuals nowadays.

    Whoever controls the media, controls the masses.

    Fuck them.

    This is really unfair IMO. Would should a big company's website load faster than a smaller one? That's a shit rule x(

    Right. They will give priority to bigger sites and small websites will be waiting in the long line/ If it get passed, this will be the death of internet.

    I highly doubt that they'll make it stick. Too much people affected by it, from business owners to end users. People WILL revolt. Remember ACTA?

    If it happens then I will launch Internet services with neutrality and be the next billionaire!

    Does anyone really think that these telecoms companies will simply give preference to few sites. They will lose all their customers. And such thing is only going to get them bankrupted, unless government forces them or all the companies unitedly take the same decision.

    I dont think they will be able to sustain this for long ISP providers who decide to implement this, will loose so many clients and will not be able to provide the traffic needed by the big sites. Not everyone goes online to watch movies so if my ISP gives me crappy speeds on the small gossip blogs i visit daily i just switch to a different ISP.

    Actually no, it's not. We experienced something very similar to this in Germany a few years ago. The 'Telekom' which is the biggest telecomunication company over here owns literally every single fiber cable in Germany. All the other ISPs simply rent the infrastructure and provide their services.
    In 2012/2013 the Telekom announced that they will implement a throttle throughout their entire infrastructure. In other words, once you've exceeded 100GB of traffic/month your speed will be throttled to 1024kb/s.
    But here's the kicker, if you visit websites or use services that have been verified (you have to pay a shitload of cash to get verification) then this won't exhaust your quota. Same goes for if your speed has already been throttled then you still get full speed access to those verified websites.
    People flipped the shit out and they finally stopped the project. But the idea of a 2 class web isn't a new one.

    According to me, it should be the opposite. Big companies are making a lot of money. They should load slower and should pay much higher to load faster. On the other hand, small companies like local business should load faster in low or no money paid. In this way we will get a balanced situation where small business can compete with the big giants.

    they will keep pushing until they get it through even if they sneak it into a bill on Christmas eve and maybe give is a name like save the wales bill so no one can vote against it.
