    Good thing net neutrality isn't going to affect us.

    Also it's not really the behemoth monster reddit's making it out to be.

    The problem for the USA is the lack of competition, a lot of areas only have 1 ISP to choose from.

    Playing sims is like playing with girls dolls, it's OK if you're a girl.

    In the end this could be a good thing -legislators may pass laws on net neutrality rather than leaving it to the FCC...

    The chutzpah of the former executive of Verizon and now FCC chairman pushing for this is quite striking. Not even the pretense of an independent body free from bias.

    Lol, I love how they basically glaze over the question regarding fast and slow lanes. So basically yeah, ISP's will be able to prioritise certain traffic - which as I understand is the bulk of complaints.

    It's worse than that, one of the telcos has been injecting java into users web browsing. They say it's for alerts but there has been 'you need a new modem click here' type adverts been injected.

    Vodafone nz already violates net neutrality here.

    They offered me unlimited* data to streaming services (for a fee).

    How's it free if they do it for a fee?

    I think the net is already poked. How most people get to experience the net is hugely filtered, and the bulk of traffic is either pirate stuff (declining) or streaming stuff that most people already use.

    I mean with these paid streaming services bundles on vodafone data is not capped to spotify etc. But not Google music (which I use). Any service that's not part of these bundles is at a disadvantage- that's never going to be good for the consumer in the long run.

    The provenance of it is the problem. A statement issued by BP that fossil fuel induced climate change is bollocks would be held in similar contempt

    Why do people not think this is a big deal? It seems like a huge deal. How can competition for these sites exist when access to one is 'free' and access to another is not, as dictated by your network provider?

    It's called a collaboration between companies to gain more customers.

    We have an entirely different model to the US, where locally hosted data makes a huge difference in ISP costs and performance. They are simply passing on the savings.
