Exactly. Seems like they are the only sane here, but they still get bashed... Is it a trend? Hate the hate that EU is getting while other horrible dictators get praised.

As well they should. As far as the internet goes, Russia outright bans websites critical of its government and where protest organization takes places, has banned VPNs, makes its telecom companies retain users' private information and metadata for vastly longer periods of time than the Western norm to be viewed at the government's leisure, and is in the process of setting up a Chinese-style firewall (with the help of Chinese telecom companies to develop the necessary infrastructure for it). 

The U.S. is a ways away from any of those things, as much as the wannabe oligarchs in power now lust for all of them.

True.  Same with China.  It is frightening the amount of control their governments have over what the public can access and know.

Yeah that's what I thought :lol:

I think this time will be different.  There won't be charging for different contents. But I'm sure that intelligence services will use it to control much more.

AT&T is already beginning to throttle sites. I can't even access YouTube without it loading like it's AOL circa 2000.

Say goodbye... 

To not knowing when the truth in my whole life began
Say goodbye to not knowing how to cry, you taught me that

Apparently, it's happening to a lot of people, Comcast included as I read on Twitter this morning.

Doesn't this have to go through courts first before it is passed?

No. They’re rules within the FCC. Not laws. 

The good thing is that as soon as a Democrat is in office (which is inevitable), he or she will appoint someone left leaning to lead the FCC and all the rules will simply be put  back into place.

Also, I would shrug if this happened and there really was a free market. But the vast majority of Americans literally have no choice as to who their internet service provider is. It’s one of the few industries in the US that is basically run like a monopoly. If your internet provider decides they want to slow down your access to YouTube by 90% you’re literally FUCKED because you have no one else to turn to. How in the world does all of this promote competitiveness and create jobs?

But none of this is about making the internet more expensive. It's about giving internet providers more power over what you can and cannot access, and how fast you can access such sites. THAT'S the terrifying and infuriating part.

 

Worried about “internet” having more power about what you & cannot view. Think it should be all left to the individuals to decide for themselves & not be left to unknown bureaucrats or employees in some commission.
