I don't know, why don't you ask one of the hundreds of users on MMORPG.com here from socialist countries and find out? Average speeds in the US availability is 100-200mb/s where they are looking at 100gb/s fiber.Horusra said:Yes because socialist countries are hot beds of innovation.SomethingUnusual said:Because net neutrality has literally nothing to do with investment and predictions. Improving the networks requires the same money whether net neutrality is present or not. Investment incentive is also non-existent in the US. These giants are only out to make money, not spend it giving neighborhoods better connection services.Horusra said:What makes people think Net Neutrality means more providers and better speeds. Everyone always paints the rosiest future for Net Neutrality and the worst for the other side. Maybe Net Neutrality means slow speeds because there is no incentive to make it faster and less providers because there is no cash for providing something better.
The telecomms would just love net neutrality to go away, they can maximize profit without spending a dime on infrastructure investment. And that's all this garbage is that the chairman is pushing through. With net neutrality in place, the telecomms have been trying to skate by wireless investment -- which is still an unstable technology -- where they can do this practice of throttling and service funneling that should also be regulated. In most of the US, cell service still sucks, they still do the unethical service charges, and have barely spent anything other than signal boosting existing towers.
This doesn't benefit the people, and severely harms small business and startups. In a digital age, there is no Main St. The only street is the internet, and if an ISP can block or slow your storefront it's the equivalent of throwing a brick through a window of a downtown store. No one will shop there until the money is spent repairing the window and clearing dangers.
It's purely corporate controlled fascism. Where stockholders and CEO's are the dictators.
Net neutrality needs to remain, and broaden to include wireless.
But, the internet as we know it is out for the count. Remember all those free wifi hotspots everywhere? Gone next year under the proposed and likely pushed agenda.
Local libraries can even be devastated -- having to pay huge amounts to maintain services with local ISP's-- and only one example. That's your tax dollars. So this will cost us in another way. Municipality expense to these hacks.
