Net Neutrality ended?

Recommended Posts



nothing has changed, and nothing will happen. ISP's have and never will block content, offer paid fast lanes, or favor one website over another which the left wants you to believe, mainly b/c they have no control over search engines like yahoo and google, which account for about 90% of all searches worldwide.

google on the other hand (a far left leaning company) have been violating net neutrality laws since the get go, by favoring their own products on their search engine, giving monetary incentives to manufacturers to pre install chrome and google search bar (mainly on android operated devices), and forcing 3rd parties to reject advertisements from its main competitors. 

also, they're notorious for blocking conservative content by pushing websites down their search results, even if the keywords being entered match the content accurately. 

this whole repeal of net neutrality has been blown way out of proportion.

ISPs had begun blocking content before net neutrality was implemented. some services like bittorrent and VoIP were blocked by the major ISPs, and connections were being throttled to customers and various websites and services. the ball started rolling on this regulation in 2007 when Comcast was busted throttling service to services that they didn't like. the FCC ordered them to stop and to treat all traffic equally, and that's where the first set of net neutrality rules started.

this regulation was born directly out of the ISPs censoring internet traffic. now that they're removed, the censoring will resume.

none of this, whether it's true or not, violates (or has anything to do with) net neutrality.

you have absolutely no idea what net neutrality is, which is common for right wingers. you just repeat what you're told and don't care if it's the truth or a lie.

why would an ISP like Verizon choose to give a fast lane to a video streaming service like Netflix and purposely slow down Amazon Prime customers with the potential ramification of losing millions of Amazon Prime customers to another ISP like AT&T or Comcast? 

or why would a video streaming service like Netflix pay Verizon money to give their content priority with the knowledge that their very own customer base has subscriptions to multiple different service providers? 

or why would an ISP like Verizon choose to block certain content knowing they could lose millions of customers to their competitors who choose to keep the internet neutral? 

point being, the repeal of net neutrality has nothing to do with blocking content or giving fast lanes b/c there's a decent amount of competition with customers spread out pretty evenly over various service providers, especially amongst the big four, Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, T-Mobile.  

the repeal has more to do with giving ISP's freedom to choose how to run their company from a logistics and marketing standpoint. a good example would be t-mobile when they decided to be the first telecommunication ISP to offer unlimited data with the stipulation that if customers used over a certain amount of gigabytes a month, their video streaming would change to standard definition from high def unless they paid a monthly fee. so what, the government should get involved in dictating how t-mobile should market to their customers? 

that's the main principal backing the repeal of net neutrality.

you do realize net neutrality passed in 2015, right? so it's only been 3 years. 

there was nothing wrong with the internet prior to 2015 besides a few minor cases which you mentioned.

the government just wants to regulate everything and everyone in this country, and people on the far left are too stupid to realize this.

if you want to know why they "would" all you have to do is look at why they did. this isn't new. the rules were created in response to the ISPs already throttling traffic.

you literally don't know what net neutrality is. you thought it had to do with google burying conservative search results. you're not qualified to have a conversation about it. go back to your tiki torch rally.

dude you mentioned poo back in 2007. the internet isn't that old. 

there's far more competition now and throttling traffic and internet speeds or blocking websites for some short term monetary gains would only hinder your customer base and long term profits. 

the internet will always be neutral, they just don't want to government getting involved in how a company markets their product.

you're a fuging moron dude. anytime you feel backed up in a corner, you result to some white supremacy racist misogynist stereotypical trump supporter insult that the left has brainwashed you with.

and google is a piece of poo, there's no doubting that. 

they control the content people see, not the ISP's, and have been doing it for years.

the left defines net neutrality as "what you read, see or watch online shouldn’t be favored, blocked or slowed down based on where that content is coming from."

yup, sounds like google alright

We were living under the basic net neutrality structure for many years prior to 2015. It was a Verizon suit that broke it and moved to the fcc net neutrality regulations. 

 

The internet for what you have known it has been net neutrality based.  That’s about to change and it plays into provides like Comcast and Verizon’s hands.

2007 —Robb Topolski a cancer-stricken network expert moonlighting as a barbershop quartet singer noticed that his quartet songs weren't getting transferred using BitTorrent.

 

2008 — FCC rules against Comcast for BitTorrent blocking, and orders Comcast to disclose throttling practices to customers and to stop discriminating against BitTorrent traffic.

2010 — the FCC passes Open Internet Order which called for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to treat Internet traffic equally. The order calls for ISPs to (1) be transparent about how they handle network congestion, (2) prohibit blocking of traffic on wired networks, and (3) outlaw unreasonable discrimination on those networks.

 

—-

 

the Fcc open internet orders were net neutrality.    This is the internet ecat knows 2010 to today.

sorry came off wrong. isn't that old in the sense that competition has increased drastically over the last 10 years, not the internet wasn't in existence prior to 2007.
