As many of you may know Net Neutrality will be dead on June 11th, but the battle is far from over the people will rally against people like Ajit Pai and try to bring back Net Neutrality. Now I know that some of you libertarians are against Net Neutrality but you shouldn't forget your history just look at how companies like Comcast were throttling there costumers internet connections.

And what about sites such as this one will the ISPs try throttling it and demanding a ransom in order to get a fast lane if so I don't see how BC could afford it.

But please share your thoughts, because this effects us all.

I really dislike having to point out - once again - that the USA is not the entire internet and that purely internal USA political problems do not - yet - affect the whole world.

 

Come to that, the organisation that provides top level guidance, ICANN,  is no longer a US government subsidiary.

I know that, but anyone in the US who uses this site could be throttled and isn't Bleeping Computer a US based website?

Chris,

 

           I think you would be hard pressed to claim that any decision the USA makes with regard to the internet in the net neutrality sphere will not have either direct, or very nearly direct, impact on the whole world.

 

           I also wouldn't call the US position on net neutrality a "purely internal USA political problem" in any meaningful sense.  The ripples from this will be far reaching, very far reaching.

Simple because of  :censored:  money in politics.
