Net Neutrality

Yea a fast lane for the entitled...
They say this is what people want???  Really?
 
So when they slow down the standard lane does the price also go down?
 
I love going to a theme park and waiting longer in lines because the owners found a way to make more money.
 
Sorry ... just sayin.

Best Regards,

It's theirs.  Not mine.  They spent the money to invest, not me, I just hopped on board after they spent billions of dollars and make little payments to them.  It has worked out great for everyone.  Exactly how free enterprise works.  If they want to start screwing with the service, we have the same remedy we have for cheeseburgers - go somewhere else.  
 
I am absolutely entitled to things I pay for.  However, those who pay less and complain they should receive the same service as those who pay more, are the apparent entitled ones who've done nothing to earn it, in my mind.

erm... the original tech and infrastructure that allowed the intertubes to be a thing was primarily funded with taxpayer loot.
 
Just sayin'.

I don't think this isn't about the cost and speed of our internet connection. We already pay for that according to potential max speed. What's up is that they plan to monetize what has become a public utility. Content providers will have to pay more to be accessible. The result is that your information backed by the big money will show up in a flash, where as stuff from broke contrarian publishers will come down in a trickle. This is regardless of wether YOU pay for a golden connection of several Trigga Bytes. It's about taking away the freedom of information, and enslaving it to the moneyed interests of the world. It will get worse. We are lucky to live in a time where there is a crack in the matrix, but someone are working overtime to reel things in again. Same as it ever was.

Well sure, but we're talking about today's infrastructure, not how the internet was invented.  Government funding does a lot of great things and is responsible for complimenting the market for invention and technological evolution. 
 
And none of that has anything to do with private companies, heavily regulated, building the overwhelming majority of facilities for decades, to the point whole networks ride completely private facilities.  Taxpayers didn't do that, private companies did that while consumers slowly gave it back over time, and profit, and we have all enjoyed it. 
 
Net neutrality is another attempt to hijack other people's private stuff and how they use it using rationales that sound convenient and politically righteous.  Nothing new, just another day dealing with over-controlling humans and their talent at thinking around any ethical principle in their way.

My question is - Who votes to end it?  I didn't and they were saying we did???
 
Does this help the end user or AT+T build its empire?

Technically, in a round about way, America DID vote to end net neutrality. Ending NN has been a plank in one of the American party's for a long time. The fellow and/or org that actually made the final decision on this would be Ajit Pai and the FCC. 
 
And no... this does not help the end user in any way.

While I am a free enterprise guy and definitely not a socialist, on this I lean toward equality on the net. The internet has evolved into the modern day equivalent of the public square. As such, all should be equally able to use it. True equalty here of course depends on everyone having the same speed, which private enterprise does not want, while governments do. Unfortunately, either way it will be used to exploit the masses, whether for monetary profit or political monitoring and control. I say we go back to hunting and gathering. We'll all be much freer. True, life would again be nasty, short and brutish, but we're all going to die anyway. Also, much better for the planet.
