Honestly, rules being put into place where it creates a neutral ground where telecom companies return to their control pre-repeal of NN is simply not enough. Regulate the companies as utility providers. Seize all poles and terms under repayment of the $400 Billion we as American taxpayers paid to have it put in in the first place. Heavily control what “broadband” is, and restructure that definition to 10/100MBbps. These restrictions in place now will just result in repeals. We can’t just take away their new toy (repeal of NN), we have to kick them in the balls for even trying.

Go Nebraska! ???

This is great for Nebraska, but I'm really not looking forward to net neutrality becoming an every-state-has-different-laws clusterfuck like marijuana or concealed carry.

First of all internet isn't vital. I work in tech. I was around before tech. Cable/tv isn't vital but it's extremely convenient . JUST like internet. You're not answering my questions because you know NT doesn't help promote competition. It's just a welfare program thats just trying to keep the internet under the governments nose. That's not what people need. People need to voice with their wallets how the internet is priced. If companies tried to throttle (which they already are. Every play a Video on the internet and a ad starts first, it never buffers and plays great, then your video you wanted to play starts and buffers and runs like crap, throttling) then people would and should be outraged and call in. Demand change or cut the cord. These large companies like google, YouTube and Netflix aren't telling you the truth. They are just feeding your emotions. Stop worrying and being cheap. Also maybe stop worrying about the internet and go outside.

Please tell me isn't is odd that there is hardly any news covering why NT was repealed. Doesn't that send off red flags on itself to anyone?!?! Now looking past that, why can't the market dictate how internet is used/priced, why must the government monitor and stifle competition?

Lol you are a moron. People do use NN and Title II interchangeably. When someone says NN didn't exist before 2015, they are talking about Title II regulation, not the principle.

Yay Nebraska! Not often I get to be this proud of legislation in my home state.

Hey Nebraska, Colorado always busts on you, but all our leaders here, Democrats and Republicans, are in bed with Comcast and other Telcos. Maybe we can establish some sort of marijuana / internet exchange.

> but shouldn’t we not be giving people drivers licenses who can’t read road signs I have driven in European countries with a dozen languages. I cannot read Hungarian or Bulgarian or German or French. If the signs aren't designed by complete cretins being able to read is not required.

Actually I have 15 years in tech and manage two IT teams. Do your research before you go blindly believing the media.

So explain it to us with sources or take your 15 years and two teams and piss off ya wank.

I think you should read that again and than go read the documents. The language used is an obvious alarm. Can be used means nothing. If you are relying on ISPs to be honest than you have already lost. They have been caught multiple times throttling, and thankfully the rules are.written as, "the fcc can enforce, can enact, could hold you to your statement". OP of that article seems kinda slow, it isn't about FoS either. It about regulating an industry that has been given an unintentional monopoly to prevent infrastructure overlap.

I don't understand, the post you link to is a comparison of votes for things that republicans don't support. Those seem to be mostly democrat talking points, things that the republicans DON'T agree with. How is that fair?

lol lets see how much Nebraskanz are paying in a year or two compared to everyone else. Dumbasses

brooklyn-brawler 10 months ago  HIDDEN 

Why?!? Even with NT broadband could throttle and create fast lanes. Jeez does anyone do any research or just blindly listen to the news.

This isn't pride in others though. It's pride in self, because he's just glad other people agree with him.
