• Net Neutrality

    From Elaek@VERT/CPUGOD to All on Sat Nov 11 18:46:03 2017
    I dont want to do the whole > thing for all of the past posts, but the talk about how some ISPs now charge extra for netflix and whatnot really pisses me off. The net should stay free. Theres no other reason besides greed for this bullshit.

    I doubt they'd charge extra for telnet, im certain theyd only charge extra
    for big sites liek facebook, netflix, hulu, reddit, etc.

    Even worse than that (at least in my eyes) are these new data caps. Only 1tb
    a month? Thats a joke for anyone that watches twitch/streams movies/downloads games.

    Instead of improving service and pricing they somehow manage to make service WORSE and charge you MORE for it. Leave the internet alone. For fucks sake.

    Maybe we'll get some kind of pirate internet using blockchain out of all
    this.

    aren they only doing this for *unlimited data for cellphones for netflix,etc?

    regarding net neutrality, we lost the war on that in the usa. laws were put on the books.


    if an isp is charging you more for using streaming, that's wrong and i would drop them. i even went to streaming only recently and cut my bill in half or better.

    I have true unlimited 4G LTE with my cell provider and love it.

    Yeah, I think Comcast has a cap on residential for 3TB per month, which,
    aside from the block of static IP addresses I get, is why I went ahead
    and got their business class service and have been happy with it ever
    since. Even the customer support is decent.

    if maybe PAI from the FCC can get fired in some crazy ass way that would be awesome. Pai doesn`t help
    But ya I really hope telnet wont be affected. logically they should affect services or protocols that cost ISP`s a lot like video which is almost 80% of their bandwith and what their customers are using. Theres a similar tiered service in portugal. just search for portugal tiered service and you`ll see what it looks like
