wtf? we already pay for internet access... why should we have to buy it by the site?
that's a load of crap

of course, all it takes is for one ISP to decide to allow unlimited access and either all of them will have to or all of them will go out of business

Just like people still don't believe that KFC is cruel to the animals, even though the Canadian KFC branch just re-wrote many policies concerning the safety of the animals now, after pressure from PETA.

Seen this before. They sound foriegn, therefore i can't believe a word of it.

Also, i think UG will be popular enough to come in some of the cheaper packages.

It will be a shame for the terrorists who have to pay more for their bomb making websites.

You seem upset about this. ARE YOU A TERRORIST?

These people are so full of it.
"We were able to uncover this information because we have been well-known net neutrality activists for longer than a year now and over time have we've gotten in contact with many high-profile industry insiders."
Wow a whole year of experience in web technologies. Yeah that gives them the credentials to make up such nonsense.
Maybe is these people would have dug a little deeper they could of made a more convincing story.

Wow XD I didn't even see the video til' now. I just read the page. But honestly, if this happens... it will be a huge problem for humanity.
#14
I don't see why they would do this... There would be a huge uproar about it.

I know that a lot of ISP companies have been complaining about the amount of bandwith being used up, but it would be pretty extreme for them to react like this.

I agree it's not necesarily exactly what is going to happen. But with the way things are going in the world, personally I would rather be safe than sorry. Which is why I'm now trying to spread the word.

I'm sure they only use that lady because she's hot. In the other videos she always wears a top that shows a bit of cleavage. Titties! Now that we've got your attention, let's talk about net neutrality!

By 2012 open source economics will be a much larger part of not only the internet, but our productivity as a society. That will bring a new dimension to the internet along with this net neutrality thing.
We're only strays.
#22
Martyr, can you explain or give me a link to somewhere that explains what open source economics is?
#23
If this actually were to occur the internet basically is going out the way it came in, and we'll be back in the 90's.

...That had nothing to do with the thread....

Foreigners dont know how to use the internet. My girlfriends brothers friends cousins dad is a high level person in a big company and he told me so. Also, i have over a year of experience with foreign nationals so I know. I'm not suppose to disclose this information but i did it anyways.

^^ I was also wondering about people (hackers?) who will somehow bypass the system the ISP's will use to limit the sites people can use. If they can somehow create some parrallel internet perhaps. We still have to use the same lines however. And civilians are definately not in control of those lines. Maybe if these wi'fi capabilities progress, the theory of a parrallell "internet" may have somewhere to go.
#31
ROFL the thing about all this is, think about the nature of the polls on UG. All of choices that are most naturally expected to be outvoting all the other choices, are outvoting the other choices. Now imagine how badly we're gonna rape these assholes with this vote.

We already are starting with 1.6 million.

It may not work because I'm logged in as a member, but I think it should. If not, just go to TED.com and use their search bar. Type in open source economics, and go to Yochai Benkler's talk on it. Should be the first link.

And who said anything about the end of the world....? Failed post.

And thank you Martyr for responding, although I already found and watched that same video about 10 minutes after posting, thanks anyway.

It makes no sense that ISPs would tell these net-neutrality people they were going to do this.

That would be counter-productive to their interests.

Anyone over the age of 3 should realise this is a joke.

And it's true, foreigners cannot use teh intrawebs.
