looks like an attempt to keep common people off of the internet. I don't know about you guys, but I don't have a credit card or any means of paying for stuff online, nor does ANYONE that I know.

I would riot this.

I am still struggling to understand how the FCC Net Neutrality move is palatable? Desirable?

You know we feed all of our money into these corporations it's no surprise they turn into giant money hungry monsters.

I wonder if this would cause independent countries to operate their own www, like cww(country wide web), surely they can't expect people in severely impoverished nations to pay these kinds of charges.

How would this effect mobile web surfing? I guess this would mean no more unlimited plans.

I find it ironic that "Net Neutrality" does just the opposite.
When li'l ol me can have as equal a voice now as POTUS. . . . . yet with net neutrality I'll be silenced.

hmmff. Not so much neutral as "neutralized".

Not sure what your talking about
Are you ignorant of what Network Neutrality is overall, or are you spinning things so people will start opposing neutrality?

with no net neutrality, a service provider can decide to all but remove websites, and make super b-lines towards others of their choice.

Net neutrality allows you to visit ATS (if you want a basic example)

Wiki on it

There's the de facto concept of net neutrality, and then there is the American government's policy of "net neutrality" which is the usual doublespeak BS.

When are there going to be some laws passed allowing for the protection of the free internet. God knows they pass laws for just about everything else. Every week there is some new threat coming at us from some company. corporation or politician. Honestly, there needs to be some rules and guidelines set down right now, otherwise I think my three year old will never grow up to know the internet the way we do know.

With my limited knowledge on the subject, I believe the "internet" can be broken down to nothing more than two computers linked together. As long us common folk can still afford a computer, there is no way they can stop us from using it. We may just develope an underground internet, and use that as opposed to the mainstream internet, so to speak...

I may be wrong though, like I said, not too tech savy...

The only problem is connecting to computers in different areas. We may end up in the old days of BBS's or something. You could always go back the old phone modems, but make sure you have free long distance. Just call your friends wherever and hook pc to pc over the phone lines. Nah, this is going ti be a PITA.

I think that's ethernet (or in other words, Local Area Network connection).

Internet is a global community that anyone can access and communicate on... and ultimately, it is only made up of 1s and 0s.
