1. Not everything the Govt does is bad for you. In this case, the Govt is actually going against Corporations and trying to make rules for the people. How you can be against what they're doing is beyond me.

2. Verizon and Google drafted a BULLS--T version of net neutrality that is net neutral in name only.

I'm all for Net Neutrality, but not for the FCC gaining more control over the Net. People need to boycott ISPs that throttle traffic and place bandwidth caps. We don't need federal intervention and regulation of the net.

I see this as a similar thing to the patriot act. A power grab by the government under the guise of protecting freedoms. Freedom is a limited government, not big brother micromanaging everything.

My 2 cents...

The FCC doesn't need to gain control over the net. We can solve the net neutrality issue with good old fashioned capitalism. We don't need a micromanaging government institution to babysit us.

You're naive if you think that there are enough smart people in the US to make a difference. No one will boycott. Look at the conditions NOW! There are companies that throttle but don't admit it. There are companies that have unofficial caps but won't give any info to paying customers.

And guess what? Surprise, surprise, the vast majority of customers don't give a poo. Companies being what they are, they'll keep adding restrictions until customers get chaffed by the them, then they'll back off for a little while and continue the squeezing.

And even IF some people finally get it and start boycotting, it won't make a difference because the telecommunications industry is one of those sectors where there are usually only 2 or 3 regional players and they all collude with one another. Don't like Comcast's secret caps and secret throttling? Well then lets move to their only competitor in your area.....lets say AT&T.....ooops they've got secret caps and secret throttling too.....

It's the lesser of 2 evils. You can call the FCC micromanaging but they've had net neutrality in place for a long time without many changes. If it wasn't for the corporations suing to remove net neutrality in the FIRST PLACE then the FCC wouldn't have to get more power so that they can enforce it.

And really, this isn't a power grab because they've had the power to effectively do whatever they wanted to a long time ago. Don't try and sell that anti-Govt, conspiracy garbage to me.

If you think that you don't need the FCC to lobby on our behalf then you're naive.

I'm not naive. The other 99.9% of the population is too ignorant and lethargic to do anything about it. As long as Dancing with the Stars is on TV and Walmart has low prices they are happy and don't give a crap about anything...

Now if only we can get the best of both worlds... No throttling/dara caps nor gov't micromanaging. Oh well. I'm sure the internet in heaven is over 1billion gb/s with no data caps and all the pirating you could ever imagine. America sure is behind.

The FCC needs to regulate the ISPs, because without the FCC, the ISPs would rape us with fees and throttle our internet connections to all sites.
