Obviously you can't read for content.Honestly I never understood the need to offer competition in the electrical supply business. At least not to consumers. It is a feel good liberal approach to a utility.Nope! The problem here is that net neutrality will make things worst, not better as the freeloaders will have equal access to the net. The volume of data will go up and the performance of the networks will go down.As for those network access rates very few are...
Actually no it is about making sure that heavy users of a companies infrastructure pay for that usage.
Of course they would be impacted. You can't build what you can't pay for. This is what excessive regulation would lead too.That is the most asinine statement I've ever seen. More restaurants have failed due to people not returning then have been closed up due to regulation. Beyond that sanitation isn't something that is unknown to a good part of the population.I'm not sure how you can manage to work that phrase into this conversationIn any event I see the number...
First off you can't be neutral when it comes to network management. You can't orivide the same level of performance for interactive communications that might be acceptable for an ftp transfer. If you don't have a network that prefers interactive communications over just about anything else then you loose the ability to deliver a high level of performance to that service.The second tier down is with content providers streaming data to customers. Again they need a high...
That isn't what I'm hearing. At the extremes the net neutrality people want free access which is asinine.Never said it was. However consider the stupidity of the desire here, people want to replace the management of network infrastructure by the owners/operators of that network with government regulation. The approach the government wants would give the same priority to an ftp download that a VoIP call might get. Do people really want choppy video calling or...
That is a pretty foolish picture to post considering it if is from the days when you needed a wire for ever thing you wanted to do.In any event the problem with the people that want the Internet to become a utility is that they don't want to pay for that utility. Beyond that utilities have for a very long time offered preferential treatment to manage the loads on their systems. Off peak electrical metering comes to mind as one approach to managing network usage. How...
Not at all, they are simply responding to the possibility that they might not have the money to pay for the infrastructure they are about to build. The wrong type of regulation could impact these companies to the point that they don't have the profits to build new infrastructure. Considering the stupidity embodied in out current federal administration this is a very real possibility.That is a very very poor example as the USPS offers all sorts of rates, some that favor...
Actually this is exactly what we have in mind when these attempts to steal private property come up. If you are in a community that wants a public until it's to provide Internet service I have no problem with that if the community buys the infrastructure to provide that service. I have a big problem if the same community tries to steal existing private hardware by decree. This is exactly what the net neutrality gang is trying to do.Nor should the community have the...
I can make a good argument that financial deregulation had nothing to do with the so called great recession.It is if the intention is to take private property which I beleive is the big point here. If you want an Internet that is free of throttling and shows no content preferences then you want a public utility. You can't get that public utility by decree though, you must be willing to pay for it. This is the big problem I have with the net neutrality crowd, nothing in...
Well yes, exactly in this case. Free access to private property is theft which is what would happen if the government suddenly imposed net neutrality on the owners of the cable to your house.In the bigger picture nothing in this world is free.In reality this is the big problem with the Internet net neutrality crowd - they want free access without paying for it. Even if net neutrality were to become a reality you would still be getting a bill at the end of the day. ...
