This will actually be a good thing, just not in the way the crooks wanted.
I bet that a new protocol with its own encrypted dns servers will emerge in the next few years, in the mean time people will get used to stuff like tor and onion links, the so called darkweb will become mainstream.
This if the trump doesn´t get shot in the ass and obama doesn´t wins the 2020 elections

Guys it is really simple. If they start messing around and internet prices sky rocket, then all we have to do is protest. About 2 months not using the internet and cable, they will change their minds very fast, and on a brighter note it would probably a very healthy 2 months for most of us.
If people protested them, the corporate media and their cheerleaders would go on smear campaign to demonize these people as commies and hippies that need to take a bath. That is how these corporate fascists play their game.
When Net Neutrality was in the picture, there was no incentive whatsoever for smaller companies to come out and try to play with the big boys, because everything would have been the same.
