The Internet Was NOT "Fine" Before Net Neutrality
Advertisement
2005, Comcast blocked BitTorrent

In 2007, Verizon blocked pro-choice text messages

In 2007-2009, AT&T blocked Skype and other VOIP services

In 2011, MetroPCS tried to block all streaming, except from YouTube

In 2012, AT&T blocked FaceTime

2013, Verizon literally said that the only thing stopping them, was Net Neutrality

Quote:Not joking… In 2013, a lawyer from Verizon stood in court and literally said that Verizon wants to prioritize websites and services that are willing to shell out for better access. She also admitted that the Verizon would like to block online content from companies or individuals that don’t pay Verizon’s tolls

More about the court cases that unblocked these websites and services:

It will continually cost everyone more for internet access. That is the bottom line.
ISP's need to continually provide profits for the shareholders.
If they can ding both the content providers and the content consumers, then easy bonus's for the top leeches.
That grinning fool they had put in place was straight out of the corporate pocket.

Ajit Pai was a lawyer for Verizon before he got the FCC job.

It was a no brainer to see what would happen.

Corporations hire, so they think they are going to be the conduits of tyranny and rights violation that no one has the narrative capabilities to challenge. Same thing went down with water rights back in the day. This is how the Right gets around the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. Say or promote the wrong thing, lose your job - meanwhile, we don't like your web site, so now you are effectively censored. Heck, "slot machines" already practically decide elections.

Montana is the first state to enact its own net neutrality rules
The FCC's new policy is ineffective in the state... at least, for now.

Quote:Montana Governor Steve Bullock isn't willing to wait. He just signed an executive order requiring that all internet providers with a Montana government contract from July 1st onward honor the principles of net neutrality for any customer in the state. Given that most major providers (including AT&T, Charter and Verizon) have government contracts, this forces telecoms to treat all traffic fairly regardless of what the FCC wants.

83% for net neutrality. Proving yet again, that they don't give a flip about The People. ACLU is suggesting that local government could also offer public internet service that you use at home just like you do any other internet service company. Hahahaha that would put some REAL competition into the market.

Comcast has been throttling customers that stream video from outside Comcast business model. It will only get worse now that it's clearly legal.
If they detect you watching tv or movies without paying for big money Comcast services you will be badly f**ked. Your internet speed and quality will be purposely disrupted to make unauthorised viewing miserable.

maybe some bright types should flash a page to (ONLY) government agencies that come to spy on your website that says:



Please contact your internet service provider for faster bandwidth to connect with our site.

Save Net Neutrality
