ISPs will be able to charge anything they want if Republican bill passes Ban on "rate regulation" could even help ISPs avoid complaints about data caps.

 

QUOTE FROM ISPs will be able to charge anything they want if Republican bill passes | Ars Technica

Republicans in Congress are advancing a bill that could strip the Federal Communications Commission of authority to protect consumers from unreasonable broadband prices. Democrats and consumer advocates warn that the bill could help Internet service providers overcharge customers and impose unfair data caps.

When the FCC reclassified broadband as a common carrier service in order to impose net neutrality rules, the commission declined to impose traditional rate regulation in which telecommunications providers would have to seek permission before raising prices. But the reclassification allows customers to complain about prices, with the FCC judging on a case-by-case basis whether a price or pricing practice is "unjust" or "unreasonable."

Those wanting to pay more for internet access should vote for a Republican....any and all Republicans. They are the ones who do not represent you and only 

represent the corporations and billionaires...the ones who supply them the cash to fool you into thinking otherwise.

When i speak to my American mates on steam they always laugh and cannot understand that nearly every ISP in Australia has a data limit of say 100 gig. I am paying $60 for 60 gig, its exspenive but i dont have off peak download times but this also includes any uploads i do as well as part of that 60 gig!

You then get charged like 10 cents for every gig over.

internet in Oz is so dam expensive and slow as a snail pace as well.

Most connections AVG around 5 to 8 mega bits per second and thats if you are lucky, i struggle to watch any youtube in HD LOL.

Even the federal agencies that are supposed to regulate ISP and internet complain that there is barley any regulation possibl because everybody does not want to mess with the cash cow.  Special interest groups abound.
