    Unfortunately what this really shows is that people have little to no understanding how free markets really work.  Ask anyone who lives in a socialist country how the "everyone should get the same" really works.  Also if you really believe everyone should get the same why do you have FIRST and Double GOLD?  Shouldn't we all get the same service?

      Net neutrality might seem like a good idea, but remember what it does is put all internet services under FCC control which means opening it up for over regulation, which means stifling competition and innovation.  If you think it's a good idea ask yourself why the people who are so pro net neutrality are the huge companies like Google, Facebook and Pornhub.

    By my guess people will always try to control the net.  There is a lot of money to be made in it.

    Which is why we all have to keep fighting back.

    Oh that modem noise.
