Hi all,

This week's poll question is about the recent Net Neutrality "Day of Action." Discuss here if you think Net Neutrality rules will be properly handled by the FCC, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

I am pretty skeptical when it comes to big money influencing the FCC. Some business models, like Netflix have already ponied up cash to get priority. When that happens the rest of the users get less bandwidth, unless the provider increases bandwidth. We all know providers already promise more than they can deliver when traffic is busy.

This will all come down to money. with the big money boys buying up bandwidth and squeezing the smaller fish out of the big pond... And the end users (domestic) will either have to suffer poor service (reduced bandwidth for general use) or pay a premium...

Sadly the US (and presumably Canada too) are being taken to the cleaners by the bully boys with the money. What is needed is a system similar to the UK - where such games aren't played nor allowed (at least for now...)

The UK's mobile/cel phone pricing system is way better than anything in N.America; as is the internet pricing etc.

But that means shovelling snow, dealing with innumerable hot springs (lots of free geothermal energy), islands popping up without warning off the coast (and spoiling the view and getting inthe way of the trawlers); not to mention loads of tourists...

'Net Neutrality' is one of those innocuous terms politicans use to hide their true goals. Ask some dimwit if they want the government to control the internet and they'll answer 'no'. But ask them about net neutrality and they'll support it because it sounds so fair and nice and friendly.

--Yes but it's a dry heat.
