Was anyone feeling that their internet opportunities were hindered before 2015? Anyone? Anyone?
This. Like most things Democrats do, it's a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.

Yes, "They ( the anti-neutrality crowd ) just make **** up", because data speed equality is exactly what net neutrality means.

This was already done with TV back with Bush 43. It was determined that TV signals would go from analog to digital. Even though analog worked in areas digital wouldn't. As a result people needed new TVs, converter boxes, and to subscribe to a entertainment carrier. Then the carrier decides want is base, enhanced, premium....etc. I'm too thrifty ( son calls me cheap) to spend 150+ per mo for TV. Got a little digital antenna. ISPs want to do the same thing. If the ISP put a premium on right wing sites knowing that some conservatives would pay it is that ok with you. Liberals are less likely to pay for access to left wing sites. ISPs could also effect access to sites they don't care for or refuse to pay access fees.

My stand is to keep it neutral and free. ISPs make enough advertising and marketing every click I make. It's bad enough I can search Holley efi and get a page of bs before I get the Holley website. Then I'm bombarded by Holley product ads for 2 or 3 days afterwards.

Would you like to know why lots of costs are rising in this country, why many things cost more than they should, on a federal, state and local level?

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.





Hypocrite.

The government establishes excessive burdens and barriers to entry into these markets. Do not think that internet service providers will be excluded. Most anything the government sinks its hooks into becomes a latent mess of bureaucracy.
Nuclear power plants have become uneconomic to a large extent because of the army of lawyers the company has to hire just to broach the idea. The regulations are bad enough, but fighting the never ending lawsuits and the delays they cause are just too much.

From Merriam-Webster

Quote:
the idea, principle, or requirement that Internet service providers should or must treat all Internet data as the same regardless of its kind, source, or destination

… a philosophical contest that's being fought under the banner of "net neutrality," a slogan that inspires rhetorical devotion but eludes precise definition. Broadly, it means everything on the Internet should be equally accessible—that the Internet should be a place where great ideas compete on equal terms with big money. —Sarah Rabil
From ABC

Quote:
Net neutrality is the principle that ISPs treat all content equally and not give preference to some digital content providers. That means the consumer can load every website, app, video, .gif, etc., equally, regardless of where the content is hosted. For example, an ISP may not charge more for sites that stream movies or promote a specific agenda. This is also referred to as the open internet.
Because paying for the bandwidth you actually use is so 2014.

Nukes are economical but the coal, oil, and gas have an army of lobbyists to make sure they get theirs..
The government did cook this **** up. A consultant told a internet company they could make more money if they did this____ Obama because he was tech savvy understood what they wanted to do and blocked it. Now the anti Obama league is willing to " love themselves" to end a free internet.

That's coming from your search provider, not your ISP.

No, they would just happily pay more for what's important to them. That's how capitalism works, even with ****.

If word got out that such and such ISP throttles ****, that ISP is done.

The business model that Liberals claim companies will use (ie only allowing access to certain sites they want you to use) would not be viable in today's world. You might as well argue that AOL is about to make a huge comeback.
