  • FCC killed net neutrality. What does it mean for gamers?

    that means one thing: you better go and take part in your elections next time, ty
    (and no, i dont think net neutrality was elected, but #45 was)
    And to choose between which? An egomaniac(that could or could not have a diagnosis or few) and a corporate owned witch. Not much of a choice is it? The complete opposite of what you proposed is what should've been done(electional boycott). So they're forced to go through the whole thing again. Look, MAYBE some more reasonable people would become nominees then.

    Considering that this only reverts to the rules as they were in early 2015, freaking out only makes sense if you thought the Internet was some dystopian wasteland in 2014 and has gotten massively better since then.

    Either the sky will fall or else it won't.  Most likely, returning to the light-touch regulatory regime that facilitated the rise of the Internet over the course of nearly 20 years preceding the FCC's arbitrary switch to Title II regulations in 2015 will similarly help facilitate future Internet improvements that we don't foresee today.

    But it's also possible that ISPs will commonly roll out abusive and predatory business practices and block legitimate sites that they don't like or some such.  If that happens, then the view that heavier regulation of the Internet is necessary will become prevalent all across the political spectrum rather than the Internet being just another domain in with the left wants more regulation and the right wants fewer.  In that case, heavier regulations will come, hopefully in the form of Congress passing a bill properly authorizing heavier regulations.

    And don't think that Congress is incapable of acting when there's overwhelming public support for an issue.  It's hard to pass laws when half of the public is in favor and half against, and that's by design, but it's much easier to pass laws when there is broad popular support and few people opposed.  For example, consider the CAN-SPAM act of 2003, which passed the Senate unanimously and the House by a vote of 392-5.
    A voice of reason as always! Cheers! <3 Edit: More competition = better product + cheaper services.
