    Title. I think we all want Net Neutrality in the future too. Since BHW has lots of traffic everyday why they don't put a banner or something at the top (next to the logo) about Net Neutrality? This is just a suggestion, i love BHW btw :), we only have 1 day left :(

    BHW is a UK-based company. While the majority of traffic/SEO related things are US-based, the majority of members here are offshore so would not be affected too much by any net neutrality based rule changes in the US.

    1. We already had net neutrality before net neutrality was a thing.

    2. Google is only for net neutrality when it suits their agenda. When it came to Google Fiber services, they were against net neutrality rules and wanted to have them better suit their business models.

    3. By classifying internet as a telecommunications service, it is subject to FCC fees and therefore that charge will be put on the customer.

    4. Government involvement isn't always a good thing.

    Yes, we all have strong personal opinions about net neutrality but it’s political by nature and it’s US based.
    Therefore, it’s not our place to critique another country’s legislative process and (given the rules) it’d be hypocritical of us to express a political opinion - much as we’d love to.
