Here a massive thread i started back on december about this issuie. I was the first to point this out on these forums. This is when government and buisness become one. This is just the start, the internet is about to be completly shat on.
People said lots of ugly things to me, but look who gets the last word....http://www.overclock.net/technology-science-news/895393-wall-street-journal-isps-possibly-charge.html
Mr. Genachowski = FCC chairman
Quote:Recently, Mr. Genachowski suggested that instead of selectively slowing certain traffic to cope with congestion, providers could consider charging consumers for how much data they consume. That would be a departure from the flat monthly fees consumers pay now for Web access.
U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison
The “unreasonable discrimination” order would in effect establish that the FCC would have an approval portal that companies must pass through just to manage their day-to-day operations. For instance, if a provider notices that a small number of users are sharing huge file dumps that are leading to congestion on the network, it should have the right to slow down those connections in order to relieve the congestion for the vast majority of users.Edited by finalturismo - 3/15/11 at 8:10pm
