You know they're going to push it anyway, right? Because people don't have a say in anything anymore. Good luck though. :/
Most of the important things

Good luck with that. Current commissioner is a former lobbyist for the cable industry.

He had to quit to take the FCC appointment. What exactly is your point?

the decisions he's making don't make a good case for him not being on their payroll anymore

I don't about you but, I tend to judge officials based on their track record and previous decisions and stances they've had in the past. To just say, 'Former is a strong word' doesn't necessarily alleviate said person's history or track record. Jackal's point was that it can definitely be seen as a red flag.

I'm kind of wondering. The US passing the anti-net neutrality bill, how does it affect the rest of the world?

I know traffic from my ISP for instance, gets routed through US ISPs....but do these have some agreement that may circumvent this bill? For instance, it will apply only to computers that are in the US that want to access other stuff (and have a contract with that ISP), and not to other ISPs that just use their network to gather data from any US server (or servers in other parts of the world if the routing just happens to go through there).

For example, imagine I want to access www.google.com, whose server is in US city X with ISP Y. Imagine the bill thing allows the ISP to make accesses to www.google.com slower. Now, will the access to www.google.com be slower when I try to access it through my ISP in my country?
Logic seems to dictate it would.....but I dunno, maybe it could or maybe it couldn't.

You're fucked too Gonzaw. Probably even harder since you aren't a US customer.

And people wonder why letting the FCC do shit is a bad idea...

I wiki'd net neutrality and read the first few sentences. Maybe its because I'm lazy and 95% alseep. But how can it be ended when it never existed in the first place? Or did TS **** up the title.


Okay wait. So net neutrality gives everyone slow internet and creates a monopoly on ISPs. Why on earth would anyone actually want that?

I've been thinking recently and if basic internet speeds ever got to like google fiber fast it wouldn't even matter anymore, maybe we should just all get google fiber


cool right but you'd be okay with private companies having the right to censor the internet?

Iirc, fiberoptic is the most expensive type of wiring. Yes, it goes insanely long distances, but everyone would have to convert to fiberoptic NICs and routers. Tons and tons of fiberoptic cabling would have to be laid. It would cost billions.
