Sorry buddy, you will get what you pay for...speeds will stay the same the cost will go up a bit.....why would you even think everyone would have their service throttled....
what exactly is incorret about what my statement
Fuzzy2, I don't blame them for anything, they are doing what they think is best for their shareholders.... I am with you, I blame the govt. but I was just listing the reason why this happened...
I think you are being a bit dramatic...prices will go up a few dollars.... this is definitely not the ideal situation....but might be better then the ISP throttling customers especially with the merger of comcast and time warner coming soon..
As far as i can tell, there were only 2 solutions to the net neutrality issue: 1. The government loosens restrictions on who can become a provider, this would create more competition and force companies to not only lower prices but stop them from throttling and possibly blocking sites. 2. Do what the govt. just did which is force all providers to all free access to all sites with out restrictions. This will cause prices to go up but the net will remain "free". The reason the 2nd one passed today is that companies like comcast rather comply with more regulations then allow competition. At the end of the day this is just a small fee passed on to the consumer. They will still be the only show in town so they will always be making money. i am sure they were behind the scenes making this happen, its afar better then the alternative (at least for them).....
Fuzzy2, there is very little free market in the cable industry....hasn't been one for a long time..... The large corps have entered the cable business and then forced the govt. to regulate it so its impossible for small companies to get into it.... Its a simple formula, start a company in a new sector, and once business takes off start regulating your own industry so that no one can enter.....makes it easy to have a monopoly while still saying anyone can compete, when the truth is that its impossible for start ups to comply with the regulations....big pharma has been doing this for years...
I agree completely with you, but the reality is that the government will not do its job...it will only do what the donors tell it to.. I think most people realize that large corps are running the show.. look at the comcast/nbc merger, pushed through by a republican on the FCC... 6 months later she quit and got a job at comcast as some govt. liaison... didn't hear a thing from any conservative or liberal news source...
James, i don't think you have any clue what net neutrality is about.... Right now an ISP can block a site, or slow it down to a crawl.... And I am actually against this, but the only alternative is that we loosen restrictions, which will never be done because the same corps that are against net neutrality are more against competition. The only reason you do not see blocked sites is because there is still a little bit of competition, and Comcast is working on getting rid of that as we speak...
Fuzzy2, i am all for loosening up the restrictions, but if you haven't noticed big corps like comcast own the govt.
it almost had to be done, the alternative would be loosen restrictions on who could become an ISP... but everyone knows that the big guys like Comcast do not want the competition..... Prices will probably go up, but at least they can't block or slow down any sites....
They are pure evil, but their resourcefulness never ceases to amaze.....I really do not think a more evil group of people have ever been organized on this planet, and I am counting the nazi's.....
