    I was talking about a very narrow aspect of the whole custome v soul sucking corporation who loathe it’s customers, relationship. The telcos will still continue he to name their customer “whore”, “a-hole”, etc.. The telcos,will,continue,to charge customers for stolen equipment that has been returned to the telco properly. The telcos will continue the over bill you month after month after month. The telcos will still continue to NOT show up for scheduled appointments.

    Don’t worry about that part of screwing over customers. That is still guaranteed.

    The rules/laws ALWAYS go to those who buy the most Congress Critters. That is true in everything.

    I prefer to get my info from multiple places. The ones that can put together a logical argument, rely on only one tired meme, and try to distract you concerning an argument, get the least attention from me. The comments in this thread is a GREAT example of that. There is ZERO informative arguments against Net Neutrality, other than “Government Bad”.

    Look at the experts in the field, and look where they get their money. Exclude the extremes, and you tend to find the most informative debate. There is ZERO debate here, only mud slinging.

    Im in here because I KNOW there are logical people who want to be more informed. If I can convince them to seek beyond the “Government Bad” mantra on this topic, then I think I am doing some good.

    Unthinkingly throwing out party talking points does little good. And this is a PERFECT example, IMHO.

    The internet is a set of protocols and agreements between interconnected networks. The ISPs were taking the fundamental underpinnings that the internet has been build upon for the last 30+ years, and they were chucking them out of the window. That is why there is such passion about this from the tech world. That is why the ONLY arguments against this that you will find here is “Don’t trust the Big Bad Government”.

    There is literally ZERO technical argument AGAINST Net Neutrality that you can find here. At best, you will get some lame excuse like “hurting the customer” from the ISPs. But there is nothing to back those claims up.

    The ISPs are fighting tooth and nail for the ability to deny giving you the information/services you request while use the ISP to access the internet.

    It is VERY easy to tell if the ISPs are inspecting the contents of the information/services you are requesting over their network, and blocking because they are competition to the Provider division of the same ISP.

    PLEASE dig deeper on this issue. Please don’t simply take “Big Bad Government” as the rote answer. This is a technical problem, look to technical sources for a more detailed explanation of this issue.

    Honestly, I would tend to agree. But there are numerous independent researchers tracking the games ISPs play. The most recent spat with netflix(see the graph I posted above), was easily defeated by the use of private VPN. Meaning, it wasn’t the netflix traffic that was “swamping” the ISPs, it was the ISPs identifying the source, and intentionally slowing the traffic down.

    Also, you are getting adequate netflix and amazon streaming now, because they are paying their blood money to the ISPs.

    I will point out the quote again. This is what the ISPs are paying good money to the GOP congress-criters to fight for, the ISPs “right” to prevent you from getting what you request on the ISP service you are paying for - “Just as a newspaper is entitled to decide which content to publish and where, broadband providers may feature some content over others”

    If by "screwing you over", you mean forcing the ISPs to allow the internet to work as it has for the last 30+ years, by forbidding the telcos to look at every piece of data coming through their networks an blocking anything that competes with the ISPs? Then yes, the feds will prevent the ISPs from blocking the content you request over the ISPs networks.


    Here is a nice quote from Verizon, as part of their lawsuit against the FCC in 2012 - "Just as a newspaper is entitled to decide which content to publish and where, broadband providers may feature some content over others"

    Yes, this is what you are fighting for. The right of the ISPs to block sending you information over the internet. PLEASE at least investigate the issue from a neutral site. You CANNOT get all your information here, as the anti-anything government sentiment around here is clouding a lot of people's ability to apply even the most simple logic to this whole issue

    Can you guess when the ISPs decided that they would no longer give their paying customers what the paying customers requested with the service the paying customers were paying the ISPs to provide?

    Yep, the ISPs were beginning to act as bad as union labor in NYC. Yous wanna plug in a fan at a conference? Yous gotta pay a union member to plug it in for you.

    Yes, forgo anything that directly competes with your ISP(who all happen to be content providers). That would be EXACTLY what the “internet” would have been for you in the next couple of years, had the government not taken the step to forbid the ISPs from blocking the sites and services you request on the internet.

    How you clowns can be in favor of this is beyond me ...

    “Just as a newspaper is entitled to decide which content to publish and where, broadband providers may feature some content over others,” - Part of Verizon’s argument in the 2012 case.

    The ISPs want to examine EVERYTHING you access on the internet, and then THEY want to determine, in the ISPs best interests, if they are going to allow you to access the data or now.

    And you all are in favor of allowing that?

    Net Neutrality = ISPs can not screw you over - PERIOD.

    Tell the telcos to stop sniffing each packet requested by their customers, and then slowing the info down/block it, if it is a competitor. You know, the way it’s been done for 30+ years. Real simple.

    But the telcos refuse to keep on adhering to the same protocols/processes that have made the Internet what it is today.

    Why aren’t you mad at the telcos for basically attempting to destroy the Internet, and forcing the governments hand?

    No they dont’t play with the same footballs. The teams supply their,own when on offense. Indy found out about it when they picked off Brady early in the game, the info was passed up the chain, and the nfl was aware by half time that New England was cheating.

    Hopefully goodell doesn’t’ burn these footballs like he burned the video tape evidence from the cheating pats.

    Lots of people talk about the lack of integrity in the world, then laugh this off.

    How many other times did the pats cheat, and not get caught.

    This aspect of the Sony fail hack doesn't seem to have gotten a lot of coverage.

    Of course it hasn't. Because the same thing could be said of just about every company in the US. If the media points their finger at Sony, they will also be setting themselves up for criticism. Do not expect this to be touted at all.

    The simple truth is that this could happen to any and all companies.

    The only food for thought to,take away from this is that corporate America does not care to staff/fun their IT departments.

    It’s akin to the movies/TV shows where they show an Army Batallion only seconds away, when a nuke plant is being cases/attacked. There was just such a scene on the “Scorpions” TV show a couple weeks ago, but in reality, there is none.

    In this case, corporations knowingly go super cheap on IT security. This could literally happen at EVERY company in the US, because companies would rather spend more on art for corporate buildings than devote the money to IT Security.

    The more this stays in the news, the better chance for some CEO/President/Board of Directors/COO/etc... to actually ask the scary question of “How much are we spending on Cyber Security?” If the CTO has some balls, they would give the accurate answer - less than the price of your car, Mr CEO.

    And corporate America has had nothing to do,with destroying the middle class?

    Growing up, the middle class worked in factories and produced good for consumption. Now the corporate board looks and sees they can make $0.005 more per sprocket if they fire all the domestic staff, and ship production to China. Of course when every corporation does the same, there are fewer folks apple to buy those sprockets.

    But keep on blaming only the democrats. When in reality, both parties have a part to play in this gutting of the middle class

  • Beyond Hypothetical: How FCC Internet Regulation Would Hurt Consumers [Cruz was Right]

    SengirV to SoConPubbie

    Bwahahaha. What a bunch of garbage. It takes 1/2 the article to begin even citing the “outrageous” changes the FCC forced the telco’s to make. It takes the 1st 1/2 of the article to call Net Neutrality and the FCC “bad guys” a dozen different ways 1st.

    1) An ISP blocking competing services for their customers. The FCC came in and said “Uhhh, no. allow your consumers to get to the site/services they are trying to access.” And this is considered bad?

    2) The article proudly mentions that Mebane, North Carolina had FIVE broadband options, so having ONE totally bone it’s customers is A-OK, because there were four other providers. I know of NO real life place that has five broad band options in this country anymore. So touting the “solution” of multiple options, while simultaneously trying to actively remove competitors is the definition of hypocritical.

    3) Comcast and bittorrent. So there are a < 100 users who blew the roof off the comcast network. So what does comcast do? Instead of cutting off the 100 abusers, it effectively shut down bittorrent for it’s millions of customers. Yes, that doesn’t sound AT ALL like comcast would be using the 100 as an excuse to disable a competitive product at all. Right, Big Business/Anti-Consumer lovers?

    At that point, I gave up reading. The bending over backwards to excuse the anti-consumer arrogance was too much to take.
