So the FCC just killed net neutrality how do you think this will effect us in the coming months
You don't actually believe this is what will happen, do you?I don't think it'll be an issue. My windows machine still sneakily complains about me choosing Chrome in certain places (I assume this is how they plan to repair the bad reputation of IE (now called 'Edge'). I just factor this stuff into whether I'll get a Mac or Linux next time. Same will go for choosing ISPs. It'll probably be good actually; if an ISP wants to cater to people who mostly use the internet to post pictures of cats on Twitter, or stream games on twitch, let them build dedicated lines to those servers so they can offer discounted rates, leaving the "mainstream" bandwidth for everyone else.
That new entrant is doing a great service to India, I wish them good luck, and may there be many more new entrants. The issue will be that the rest of the crabs-in-a-bucket industry may try to turn those complaints into lobbying for laws to protect them (and shut down the new competitor). Attempts at colluding and monopoly always fail because they create both an incentive for new entrants, and also cheating internally (secretly discounting below the agreed-to rate); so they turn to something that doesn't fail (at least for them): giving their anti-competitive behaviour force of law.The rest of the industry is complaining that this new entrant is violating fair business practices and offering services at a price lower than what "the telecom" industry agreed to.
You didn’t read my post at all, did you?It's a good move by the FCC. It's unfair that companies like Google, Netflix and Amazon can ride for free. American's need competition in telecommunication and this should bring it.
It's exactly what verizon had done to Netflix by throttling the bandwidth to it's customers. Imagine the same happening to majority of the websites that we access daily.I can’t think of a single reason why this will benefit anyone except ISPs and their shareholders.
This was a catastrophe for the principles of the internet as we know it, and will literally change the world for the worse.
We as site owners should be particularly worried. Imagine you’re running a forum on a particular topic, and there is a competing forum running elsewhere. Then imagine that for whatever reason, an ISP decides that they prefer that other forum, and prioritise data for that forum instead of yours... Think that sounds implausible? Just wait and see.
I would agree, if there was much choice. A few companies hold power of the internet. Even if you don't get internet from one of those ISPs, it's likely that your ISP does get their internet through them. AT&T and Verizon are both Tier 1 networks in the United States. Which means both control the internet at the very highest level.Same will go for choosing ISPs. It'll probably be good actually...
That's what concerning to me you put so much time and effort into your site and then you get throttled and people loose interest so all your hard work is goneWe as site owners should be particularly worried.

And that's a perfectly valid point. Many ISPs have been caught throttling services that compete directly with theirs own in house offerings.That's what concerning to me you put so much time and effort into your site and then you get throttled and people loose interest so all your hard work is gone
Not far fetched it's a concern to many o hope they don't do that because they have so many eyes on them right now I hope they keep the internet the way it is because let's face it consumers get what they want I take my phone as example I had. TMobile and it was the worst service I ever used I up and left them so of people see that sites are throttled they might get up and leave themThat might be a far fetched scenario, but under the new rules that's 100% legal. The only stipulation is that they have to tell you that the site is being blocked.
For many (and I mean MANY) years, the only "high speed" internet offered locally was DSL. If you wanted high speed (not even broadband by that definition) service, you paid what they required. Otherwise, dialup (which went over their lines also) was good enough for you.So unless that "Meo" ISP is the sole national ISP because their government has banned competition in that area, it isn't important how they offer their services in isolation, but what the competition is offering too.
