No more free youtube.. it'll be your favorite $5.00 a month dlc.

No more proxy.. that's blocked.

The end of torrent.

All your favorite sites are going behind a paywall like xbox live or psn.

Admit it, its what americans want.. and no one is going to do anything about it. As i see it, All talk and no walk.

Unlike germany, when they raised gas prices, everyone left they car on the highway and the government had no choice but to lower it back.

Poor americans will have to suck it up and start paying the internet like if its a cable bill.

Jaghave, you realize that net neutrality was implemented in the first place specifically because ISPs got caught throttling access to some sites, right?

No it was implemented because the Obama administration was doing a power grab in all major industries in the United States

I would like a more specific justification for this.

They'll bring it back.. microsoft done that with xbox live and after awhile... slowly but surely.. Americans paid. Sony did it too.. and they we go...

Same thing with the internet. In other countries we laugh.. america is so controlled that a rotten tomato score determines if a movie should be watched. Americans will pay regardless of new internet fees because thats what you all are comfortable with.
