Nope, I would not.

And I won't have to. Ever.

May not be a "real" HM, but it does look fun.

I f***ing hope the idiots that insist on this aren't idiots and prove me to be one. I really do.

Remember a few years ago, when net neutrality didn't exist?

Remember ever paying to use Steam?

Yea.

It does not have to be Valve, Comcast/Cable companies can now charge that to access Steam/Uplay/ect. They have already been caught throttling services and demanding money before a few times.

Throttling is a very real issue and some of AT&T's actions in doing just that were part of what caused Net Nuetrality to come into existence in the first place.

They may not charge you extra for streaming and downloading (yet), but they're now free to throttle you into oblivion to the extent the services aren't usable anyway. It's already a very real problem on mobile networks. Unlimited data*!

(*Up to 10GB, at which point you'd be better off with a dial up connection because now we're putting the brakes on)

I love it when Trumpsters post this like it has any truth to it.

Net neutrality as a totality only existed in 2015-2017. However, many of its rules and regulations were in effect prior to 2015. Those are now repealed as well.

Someone called Marcelo Sampaio being called a Trumpster is so ironic. :p
