    Net Neutrality is Dead

    Telecoms now have the power to restrict access to certain websites, throttle access to certain websites (ie Netflix, YouTube), and do whatever the hell they want now.

    http://bgr.com/2014/01/14/net-neutrality-court-ruling/

    My favorite part of the Appeals Court's ruling:
    Page 40 - Speaking about consumers switching to another ISP.
    Moreover, the Commission emphasized, many end users may have no option to switch, or at least face very limited options...
    Page 73 - Speaking about consumers having other ISP options.
    ...consumers, of course, have options; they can go to another broadband provider if they want to...
    So basically, 33 pages after they state that the end users have little or no options to switch, they completely back-pedal and say they can go to another provider if they want to?



    Thanks, US Politicians not giving a fuck to understand what the hell is going on and blindly accepting the shit ton of money thrown at them if they rule a certain way.



    If you're reading this thread and have no idea what Net Neutrality is or why it's bad, I explain in the very first Maxdoggy Gaming Rant video! Yay politics!

    Google Fiber to the rescue? Please?

    In fact, the court actually argues that the United States is overflowing with competitive options in the home broadband market and cites Google Fiber — which is currently available in only three markets — as evidence that competition is robust.
    We really need technology-savvy people in government... They probably were just like, "Wait, does Google provide internet, or is Google the Internet? Oh well, it's probably close enough either way. We'll just use them as an excuse anyway because they're such a well-known company. What were we talking about?"

    Canada is the next-best option, but they have their own litany of issues too.
