Mabye it has been covered but nn seems like it would destroy satellite internets. If a company or tech only has a certain amount of bandwidth then they should be free to charge what they want. Until equal coverage is out there for everyone then how would this be fair.

Apparently it's a power struggle between both sides

There's a great deal of net neutrality information out there, some of it has been around for more than five years.


Yeah, power struggle all right.


Net Neutrality Free and open Internet where Internet service providers cannot screw with the free flow of data.


Anti Net Neutrality Closed and metered Internet where Internet service providers are able to filter the flow of data.


Which side of that power struggle do you prefer?



I am against an Anti-Net Neutrality Regulation that calls itself Net Neutrality....

Why would it disproportionately effect satellite internet? Aside from all the websites an end user visits suddenly having to charge membership fees NN doesn't really effect end users. It impacts content providers. No content providers are hosting their website on a satellite connection.

To give you more details on connection type, ALL types of connections operate on the idea of overselling bandwidth, the idea is that customers are never maxing out their internet service. If a company has a line that handles 100 MB down, they can sell that to 100 people on the idea that each person is only downloading 100MB worth of content for 1 out of every 100 seconds. This works because most content is received in bursts, even streaming video. This is just an explanation of how the internet works... nothing you have said in this post I replied to has anything at all to do with Net Neutrality.

Net Neutrality is this - Packets cannot be prioritized or altered based on their destination or source.
