    This is some Scary stuff... and a very realistic probability.

    Many politicians (with heavily Greased Palms, and ZERO knowledge of how the Internet works) will argue that this is Capitalism at it's finest. Bullshit.
    Capitalism is built to Fight Monopolies, Internet providers like Comcast have absolute control over the Market.

    The Internet should be considered a Telecommunications Service, and be mandated as such. Comcast is getting away with murder because it is not considered a Common Carrier.

    Mandate it like Phones and Power!

    Here is a GREAT "Explain like I'm Five Years Old" explanation of Net Neutrality for those that don't know much about it:





    What are your thoughts? How do Internet Service Providers treat you in your Country/Area?

    As far as I know, all telecoms are lobbying to kill net neutrality. They want to continue taking our money and not improve their infrastructure. They enjoy the profits way too much.

    I'm not sure what we can do. Private companies need to step in and start building their own networks. Google is an example. But they're only one company battling a huge telecom industry (pseudo monopoly).

    Kind of an old chart, but still illustrates what an uphill battle this is.
