A mock-up of the end result of net neutrality dying.

Companies like Comcast will put up their hands and claim they would never consider such a thing, but the moment they think they can get away with it they will go full tilt.

Here's the full image, BTW.

And yeah, the moment any major ISP thinks they could get away with this shit, they'll do it and never look back - especially if they can convince consumers that this is for their own good.

So I guess it's time to give up and wait to die.

I commend you for your optimism for waiting until now to do so.

Although I don't know what brought on the OP's post.

>The FCC is currently considering how to enact new rules after previous enforcement methods were struck down by a federal court in January. Advocates for the open Internet are pushing for reclassifying the Internet from Title I to Title II under the Telecommunications Act of 1996. According to the supporters of this measure, it would make the Internet more like a public utility and give the agency more authority to regulate the Web and enforce protections for net neutrality.

I remember a similar case in Europe, or at least i France, where the local provider had tried to do that, then the European law told them to fuck off. Free (the irony) still stried to filter youtube for a while to "force" people to upgrade but it failed and they got spanked again. We are safe there from that shit for a while at least.

Basically, the best point one can make here is:

Nothing is free, and if you like something, better be willing to fight for it, or else someone will take it away.

it's probably over, calling your representative and telling them you support classifying isps common carriers is the most you can really do, and who knows if they will even vote according to their constituency

Wait, you're saying if I support net neutrality I'm fighting *against* giant skyscraper lasers?
Screw that, I'm going with the side that's totally metal.
