It’s not like ISP’s can flip a switch. We’re talking about a steady decline that begins this week. Most ISPs are in planning stages right now.

And the effects aren’t going to be immediately transparent. Like a few weeks from now you may start seeing threads like, “My roku player is broke, it starts buffering every 5 minutes.” The effects will be subtle at first.

I never had to upgrade to use reddit. Stop the fear mongering. Yer literally trying to cook up the worst case scenario possible. That is fear mongering. You guys literally put forth s*** like having to spend $10 to access steam, $10 for youtube, $5 for reddit, etc. That is fear mongering.

Like I'm not even trying to say there would be no downside to it (there would be good and bad), just that people like you are way off in the deep end.


I didn't realize that big corp were such trustworthy people, or not like telcom businesses have already been caught trying to arbitrarily throttle speeds in favor of their partners...

Anyway, it's not fear-mongering. It's a plausible reality although it seems you'd rather we just sit on our hands and wait for it to happen before voicing our displeasure.

I really don't understand how anyone can attempt to justify giving up the protections in place that enforce ISPs giving us full speed to everything.


Probably Trump supporters who blindly support every bit of policy etc. that came as a result of his s***storm of a presidency.

I agree OP and I will be laughing with you when nothing significant happens upon its repeal. The internet nowadays deserves to die anyway, no great loss either way.


And then you'll be crying when the porn sites you subscribe to suddenly become much slower and/or more expensive.

OP has no clue about the topic but still opens a thread.
Grats, you played yourself.
He voted for a rich billionaire who embodies the corporate attitude to "drain the swamp" of pro-corporate ideals and to make things fairer for the everyman instead of corporations.

He has no clue about life period.


Don't worry, I'm sure he'll remember the little guys like TC when he's paying off his constituents with our tax money.

and yet people like TC will make topics in a couple days going "SEE? net neutrality is gone and nothing changed, checkmate liberals"

While there was never any real media coverage about it, Clearwire was throttling youtube in my area back in 2009 or so, which was included as part of a class action lawsuit (which failed because the ISP wasn't doing anything that was considered 'illegal' at the time) against them because the ISP wasn't providing advertised speed to Youtube.

Huh... just noticed that they also supposedly blocked a competing phone service Vonage back in '05 too.

I really don't understand how anyone can attempt to justify giving up the protections in place that enforce ISPs giving us full speed to everything.

My brother who lives in Milton FL is no longer allowed to DL torrents, IP won't allow it. This was instituted last year I believe... so I'm not sure what NN offered.

Unless you are a large shareholder in a cable provider, I don't understand how anyone could support the repeal of net neutrality. Its one of the most anti-consumer concepts I've ever heard of.

Astroturfing. Or poor attempt at trolling. No one benefits from repealing net neutrality except faceless corporations and the billionaires who back them.
I'll... shave that cat.
