Snake Oil, Smoke and Mirrors or Whatever, It is Just Bullshit by Another Name
I have followed the net neutrality issue closer than the average person. Personally, I think the public might comprehend and care more if we re-labeled the issue to net “equality”. Nonetheless, what we are talking about is no tiered Internet access. By that, we, the citizens, should have completely unrestricted access as far as delivery speed. The Internet should not resemble a toll road where different vehicles pay different tolls. Especially since the cost for bandwidth is constant regardless of who is using it and the cost of said bandwidth is decreasing with new tech.
Tech news. Net neutrality ya right.
The FCC is warning congress that mucking with the internet providers will cost most, cost jobs and basicly gum up the works. I don’t know about you but the retail internet in the USA suck poo. Big corporation ride on the same backbone as you and I and share and share a-alike isn’t in the card. How can a huge company have more bandwidth that 200 customers on cable or DSL, just those customer get shut down for ‘capping’ or over use. This is all about money and not politics!
