Exclamation Save the internet!



watch the video and sign up and do all you can.

someone may have posted this before but it's really important!

Please pass this on people. it's not a chain letter as some of you may know. Because we all know if net neutrality goes bye bye then the internet will just suck!

the video explains what net neutrality means. but basically it's that isp's can not interfere with information being sent across their lines and say who get's faster service than others. that means people like amazon would have to pay big bucks to verizon or comcast to get their website to load fast for users browsing their sites. it would really suck ass simply.

Ah well....bye bye....

If they want to do it (that video was really crap btw ) they will. It won't matter about us in the end.

how much would this effect users of the internet not in the US, as we use different ISPs?

really i'm not sure about that. being in a different country there isn't much you can do to prevent it. although getting sites from the us might be dramatically slower or near impossible to reach

EDIT: btw kage why was the video crap?

Even if it did.
From the video, it just seemed like companies could pay for bandwidth. It never said, or from the videos it showed of it working, that the older system would slow down, as their were 2 lines for data. A fast one, and the one we have now.
Thats how I saw it.

If this was serious, it would be all over the media, newspapers, the TV. It will never happen.

This was bound to happen sooner or later. Think of it as premium cable tv. You have your basic TV then you pay extra for HBO, Cinemax etc etc. They want to do that to the internet. Basically as I understood it, say verizon scores a deal with youtube. They have 5mb/s download vs standard restricted internet at 2mb/s. I just pulled these from my head so don't think thats the scale but a rough idea. Personally I don't care because i'm on 56k. If I could even get 50kb/s download I'd be happy as hell. Let alone 4mb vs 8mb download speed.... Maybe they should worry about getting hi-speed internet everywhere first. My only current option is satallite internet and its $60 a month plus $600 for the dish.
