the distort the words to confuse people big time so lets get this issue public as fuck

 

 

This gets especially confusing to the average citizen when you have people like McCain pushing for the "Internet Freedom Act," which actually is in favor of the opposite. The bill is in favor of allowing ISPs to use packet and bandwidth restrictions, giving the ISPs the "freedom" to restrict us. Way to go McCain

Wait, did you think they should call it "The Internet Restriction Act" or something? No one reads bills, just look at the last ten years of American history if you doubt that. We should have had a revolution when the PATRIOT act was on the the floor, but noooooo.

Oh, no. I'm not falling for that one.

 

Net neutrality is just another term for certain ISPs fighting against common carrier status. They do this by lobbying to get laws passed which frame the argument in terms of security and public safety...in the end, it's ridiculous because consumers who are familiar with the internet are going to gravitate towards the least restrictive option.

 

The only way ISPs could make tailored service favorable would be to offer it for free, similar to how you have to deal with commercials when you watch broadcast television. Then they could make the argument that since the content is provided for free they have the option of what you get to see, interstitial ads, filtered content, etc.

 

In the long run, ISPs are going to realize that people will pay more for unfiltered, unlimited bandwidth and you'll hear less about bills like this trying to get passed. I mean, Korea has a fairly authoritarian government but at the same time they have some of the best internet service on the planet...they realized that if they were going to be competitive in an online world that they had to create the infrastructure and make it widely available with few restrictions.
