Default Anyone hear about this internet may become slower thing?

http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/06/09/new...net/index.html

Could the internet become slower to some website if you don't pay for the extra speed to some websites?

That is absolutely absurd.....all these big companies care about is making money. They already have millions, and they want millions more. I just don't understand it. I hope it doesn't go to law.

Err.. That should actually cost them more to restrict bandwidth. Because instead of letting the data flow smoothly, they would be capping it, kinda like trying to put 100 PSI of water though a garden hose (restricting) and then trying to put it though 3in PVC pipe. Because the servers are going to have to work harder to keep the data from going out.

Lol, does anyone understand what im talking about

Oh well, anyways, thats absurd.

That's why they always say to go with the smaller companies for webhosting... because 1and1 and GoDaddy and the rest of the "big boys" have slow support, all they think about is money, etc. etc. etc.

I'm trying to switch my email address back to my ISP now, I hate Yahoo
