Are there any advantages to the public for non-neutrality?

Question still hasn't been answered
True. I don’t think there are.

I often wonder how much longer the incognito free ride will last.  :frown:

My general view of the internet is that it has gotten progressively worse since the day people started making money with it. Net neutrality is another step.

Even if congress passes it there isn't an ISP on earth that would take advantage right away.  Would be business suicide.

We’re six months into the proclaimed internet Armageddon of no net neutrality. What’s your over/under on when the evil internet barons roll out Operation DOOM?

I don’t have one. It won’t be all at once, tiny little baby steps over a prolonged period of time. It will happen if it stays.

Yeah, it's not bad.   While HOA's can be like wrestling cats, if you have one, and haven't explored this kind of thing, you should.   Cable/Telco providers are desperate to save wired TV customers and are ramping up their MDU/HOA sales groups.

What in the world. The internet is a billion times better than in 1998.

On balance, everything is less fun. Think of facebook, for example. That's pretty much the story across the board.

I live in an HOA in Wichita. The only cable / internet providers are Cox and AT&T. I’ve got AT&T for
internet but DirecTV for tv. There’s no way in hell I could get all the homes in this neighborhood under one contract. Is that what you did? Like a condo association? Or are these seperate homes? All under one contract, or just a preferred pricing contract where people still subscribe individually at a special rate? That is a crazy good deal.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

I guess this is the right thread for this.

I want internet access to as many people as possible. I truly believe that knowledge is power and access to it is live changing. The deal with capitalism is you can go where the money is, and with internet service that means neglecting rural communities.

I don’t know how you change it to provide access to more people and build out more infrastructure. I don’t think it’s having the government have a hand in controlling it though. Maybe it’s bidding out contracts to companies and giving incentives. Maybe it’s setting up access points from hot air balloons. I don’t know.

Governments who control internet access have been abusing that power more and more across the world in recent years. I can’t remember where I read it or saw it(I think it was on GPS with Fareed Zakaria) but internet blackouts have been on the rise. I know America is different and our government doesn’t wield that power, but this seems like the wrong direction to go.

I believe in Bitcoin and fair crypto’s wholeheartedly because it allows people to control their own money. It allows them to buy and have control over sound money. It can’t be censored or confiscated by governments. I believe free and open access to the internet should be protected and spread out as much as possible. It’s gives the people power and knowledge and freedom.

I think Trump is right that we need to expand it, I’m just not a big proponent on having governments have any major control of it. Maybe they will figure a way to incentivize private companies to build it out. I don’t know. Private companies and ISP’s could potentially do the same thing as governments if they banded together.  So I don’t think there is a truly universally good option. Just whatever gives as many people as possible free and open access to the internet I am in favor of.

Wierd thread choice but I couldn't care less about this story. As long as we don't decide to just assassinate her, I'm OK with whatever.

It does appear to be a very passionate and important issue to a lot of maga's tho.

A sizable population of Muslims is in Alabama.

My understanding is that the Whitehouse is disputing the citizenship issue.

It does seem like that should resolve it, though. If she’s a citizen give her a trial.
