Lets face it. Without the internet MMORPGs would not exist.
And when something comes along that tries to hurt the internet, I think it should be especially important to us as gamers to try and do something about it.
For those of you who don't already know, the American cable providers are trying to create an unequal playing field for internet speeds. They want the ability to charge companies (such as Netflix) a premium so that their content will be streamed to users faster. This proposal violates Net Neutrality, which currently ensures that all websites are treated equal by internet service providers.
I think John Oliver explains it best (probably the most important 13 minutes of your entire year):
If this gets passed, what is to stop cable companies from forcing MMORPG companies from having to pay for the internet "Fast Lane". You think it is hard for indie developers to make an MMO now. Imagine how much more difficult it will be to compete when all of the AAA companies can afford to pay for the fast lane.
As John says in the video, there is still something we can do about it. The FCC is allowing everyone to post comments and give feedback on the proposal.
