I hope Verizon burns in hell and will be forever boycotting all their products/services.

Exactly. Don't like what your ISP is doing? Pissing and moaning won't get you anywhere, but changing ISPs will. Verizon is in the business of getting money, and if there is a huge backlash (like there was for Comcast) they will change their tune.

Pretty comfy but at least I can spell California.

ROFL so you proved my point. Maybe reread my post all they were throttling was bit torrents. Something that is used primarily for rampant piracy and chews up tons of bandwidth and is not allowed by OCN good one I'm convinced.

Thats cute, but what Verizon wants to do is illegal and they're trying to get the gubment to change the law. You guys get that? It's not about people's choice or no choice yet.

We don't elect FCC officials though, so what do we do? Send angry emails?

Only thing i can think of is giving my congressmen a call about it.

Welp, that's the issue and we the people are left to our own devices. I hope the gubment does not bend.

Do you play any online game that distributes patches? Then you use the P2P torrent protocol.

Bottom line: Should ISP's get to determine what you can do with the service you pay for? Should a car dealer be able to tell you what roads you can and can't use?
post #48 of 53
Unfortunately, this isn't like the toll roads arguement. The thing with a toll road is it's ALWAYS an improved, privately or otherwise non-public owned road that is better innately then the roads built and maintained by the government and free of use to the public.

In this case, there are no public roads.

Unfortunately, we are forced to choose which toll road we prefer, based currently on quality of the road, speed limit, and cost to drive it. However, soon we will be forced to choose our roads based not only on these same factors, but also:

1. What cities we wish to get to.
2. What restaraunts we want to eat at on the way.
3. What hotels we wish to stay in en route.
4. etc. etc.

On top of this, in some areas with already limited enough choices, this would create a situation in which we may have NO options. Where I live, there are only 4 service choices:
1. Suddenlink Cable
2. AT&T DSL
3. Settelite
4. Dial-up

That is IT. We don't even have Verizon, but this would set a DANGEROUS precedant where I may be FORCED to pay large amounts extra to continue to use Netflix and game online. Despite my avoidance of torrenting, I still watch a large amount of Netflix, and while my bandwidth usage may not be as great as many, that does NOT give my ISP the right to charge me extra simply to view Netflix. Charging this extra is FUNDAMENTALLY anti-competitive and a huge sign of monopolistic behavior.
