You're talking about the references to "usage-based pricing" right? Like I said the FCC hasn't even gone far enough to properly define net neutrality. Congress should be working towards progressing this legislation in it's entirety.

GBs aren't anything anymore. 10 HD vids on youtube/etc and you're over a gig. I'll become a radical if they do this... lol.

Guys, you're all so angry, but what are you actually doing that will get them to listen? Posting angry posts on a forum they probably don't know of?

They aren't going to listen to you. Why? Because you aren't speaking on their terms, the terms that got things as bad as they are today: money.

If this is the final revision, and it passes, then you should know what needs to be done. Go out there, BREAK ****, CREATE UPROAR, PROTEST, cause damage to the company, and then they'll listen when their wallets are threatened.

Your right they haven't, but they don't need to because they don't need to go though any legislative process. You have to be vigilant and look for the devil in the details.

do a Google on UN INTERNET regulation.
The united nations is pressuring governments around the world to do something about regulating the internet. This was just a few days before the Fcc started taking actions. If you did read that than you should understand this in its entirety than.

Also we dont need the government involved in the internet, in anyway shape or form. The free market will keep the bad ISPs OUT and the good ISPs in. Because our money will do the dictating. If we see data caps and extra charges we will just switch ISPs. BUT if that free market gets regulated, your in trouble.



This is the reality of what we are facing, connect the dots...

How many times does this happen before people learn that you want better you need to make competition possible.

Also, don't just blame the CEO as they are not the only one responsible. Include the board the and the other Cxxes. The CEO sucks because they are the one that the others can dump everything on when crap hits the fan.

So if we want better prices and service we need to bring in more competition in America's network industry.
Definitely. **** all of the high up executives. We need competition badly or else they'll continue to halt progression.

I'm with you on that. It's hard because I, along with most people, can't switch providers because of there only being 1 in my area(legal monopoly). There is about to be "unrest" though. I'm not scared to do bad things to companies who perpetuate these practices. Oh look, the anarchist cookbook is for sale on Amazon.

I know Americans hate government intervention, but by christ does someone need to step in and FORCE them to spend the money on the lines instead of trying to scam people.
Upgrading the infrastructure costs money. So there are a few options as I see it:

1.) Limit bandwidth / total GB usage. Costs don't have to increase for customers.
2.) Don't limit bandwidth or usage, but charge per GB. Costs don't have to increase for most customers.
3.) Upgrade network, no restrictions for customers, costs increase for customers.

I'm guessing a combination of all three might happen.
