I fully understand that. But they are also paying for a guaranteed level of service due to the way they can saturate the telcos networks.Again I have to say most of the net neutrality arguments are coming from people that simply don't understand the technology. I can pay for my LTE bandwidth every month but that does imply that the bandwidth is available every hour of every day of the week. The bandwidth is a function of load, distance and other factors as I'm not...
Which is exactly how it should be! I'm not sure why people think that services like Netfix should get a free ride on the net. I still believe that most people in favor of net neutrality simply don't understand the technology nor the impact that Netfix and similar operations have on the network.I see a lot of fear mungering from the net neutrality crowd that seems to imply that they will personally loose something if we don't push net neutrality forward. That is pure...
Then you don't understand the dangers net neutrality will present to the end user. The problem is that somebody has to pay for the bandwidth and it that regard it is far better for Netflix and other bulk users to pay for that bandwidth rather than the average consumer. The vast majority of consumers are only interested in a couple of things out of the net. That is streaming services, E-Mail, and the web. Net neutrality would have zero impact on e-Mail and the web, it...
Obviously you are not up to speed on the latest attempts from Washington to censor the Internet, this time going after books that float about the net. This has nothing to do with local ISP or even national carriers but is rather a direct effort by the administration to attempt to limit what you can access on the net. The net neutrality move would only make it easier for the likes of these people to further control what you can read or see on the net. The current...
Republicans didn't set up the monopolies that we see in most of this country that is a function of local government. The reality is you actually do see more competition in Europe due to less regulation. Surprise.
More nonsense.No it didn't, your local governments allowed that to happen.We don't need regulation of the carriers beyond what is already there, we need regulation of government to make sure that the local authority doesn't offer exclusive contracts to what ever carrier finds the most corrupt official. This in a nut shell has created the biggest problem we have today, which is the high costs of services.
Actually they caught up because of excessive government spending. Our biggest problem is we spend far to much of the budget on social and far to little on more productive uses for a tax dollar. We need to go cold turkey with respect to welfare for one an if there are riots in the streets we need to shoot the lazy bastards!Then we need to start in on corrupt state governments and make the states respect the constitutions and find a new desire to implement equality in...
The problem is the administration has been bought! The purchase was made by ignorant people that want to freeload on the rest of society. It is no surprise for example that the Free Software crowd is a big proponent of net neutrality. Why? Simple they are the types of people that never pick up the tab.The common thread I'm seeing here is the insistence from the net neutrality people that they need the same acces to the net as everyone else but don't want to pay for...
Having traveled a bit I know exactly what you are saying. Sadly the quality of the interstates vary widely from state to state but in many cases the roads are far worst than what is seen in many places outside the U.S.
The responsibility for the creation of laws in this country reside with the legislative branches of government not the courts and certainly not with the executive branch. Trying to twist laws writing at a different time for different technologies to support an executive branch pie in the sky policy is at best sleazy and at worst illegal. I'm leaning toward illegal because it undermines the whole intent of the constitution and the partitioning of powers that it lays out.
