Update: Bell Canada and TELUS (formerly owned by Verizon) employees officially confirm that by 2012 ISP's all over the globe will reduce Internet access to a TV-like subscription model, only offering access to a small standard amount of commercial sites and require extra fees for every other site you visit. These 'other' sites would then lose all their exposure and eventually shut down, resulting in what could be seen as the end of the Internet.

Dylan Pattyn *, who is currently writing an article for Time Magazine on the issue, has official confirmation from sources within Bell Canada and is interviewing a marketing representative from TELUS who confirms the story and states that TELUS has already started blocking all websites that aren't in the subscription package for mobile Internet access. They could not confirm whether it would happen in 2012 because both stated it may actually happen sooner (as early as 2010). Interviews with these sources, more confirmation from other sources and more in-depth information on the issue is set to be published in Time Magazine soon.

That image isn't real by the way, just propaganda.

We'll see what happens, I'm still skeptical.

Um, even if they think about trying this, do you realize how long this is going to last? About a minute. People will go crazy if you take away their internet. I doubt this is going to happen. Nobody is going to just let this happen.

The internet is the biggest trade of information there is today. It's one of the biggest freedoms that people of the 21st century celebrate. We shouldn't pay for it. We've fought for our freedoms and we'll damn ****ing fight for it as soon as some dip**** tries to take it from us.

I really wouldn't be surprised if something along those lines happened.

Well internet, it was a fun ride, and it was good while it lasted.

What can we do?

The reason why we're releasing this information is because we believe we can stop it. More awareness means more mainstream media shedding light on it, more political interest and more pressure on the ISP's to keep the Internet an open free space. We started this social network as a platform for Internet activism where we can join forces, share ideas and organize any form of protest that may have an impact. If we want to make a difference in this, we have to join together and stand united as one powerful voice against it.

Join the movement.

Don't let the Internet evolve to this:

even if they do do this everyone would switch the ISP that would let you do whatever and they would lose all their costumers

Well I do believe to create a monopoly like this quite goes against the very foundations of what Capitalism stands for. Before you know it, people will be parading down the streets, waving their red flags while the American flag is replaced by a red one with a hammer and a sickle.

What do you guys think?

I guess it's not that ironic that Capitalism would eventually try to make money out of our freedom.

Ah yes,

By 2012 programmers could invent a new internet and distribute that and all the major companies will be like "OH ****" and we will be like " I Love THE INTERWEBZ, damn just got RickRoll'd... oh and now i lost the game.... and now you just lost the game. Why do I keep coming back for more."

People won't stand for this, it's inevitable. This may happen, and if/when it does, people will form new groups, create their own free servers, etc. The same kind of principle in the free downloading of Music. I VERY HIGHLY doubt that this idea will ever take off.

Like when dad said that dishes would become a normal routine for the kids in the house; it was a good idea, but it never took off because no-one wanted to do it.

Are you going to print out your favourite porn videos frame by frame, then stick it one of those spinning things from the 1800's? That would be awesome. Make me one and I'll pay you in skittles and puppies.
