re: Would Net Neutrality affect Tigerdroppings? - JohnnyKilroy
[quote] Honestly if Comcast called me and said look you can pay for a cheaper package but you only get say 12 websites. I’d do it. [/quote] Even when all 12 of those websites feature content made exclusively by Comcast and their subsidiaries (NBC, MSNBC)? Btw you already paid for everyone's i...

re: Would Net Neutrality affect Tigerdroppings? - JohnnyKilroy
So many ignorant people in here acting like the concept of NN started in 2015. NN has essentially been around since the beginning, but technology has progressed to the point where ISPs actually have the ability to violate NN in ways that weren't possible 5, 10, 15 years ago. Btw, I really wo...

re: Best Roomba for an apartment with hardwood floors & area rug? - JohnnyKilroy
[quote] If you're going to get a Roomba, get one of the smarter ones. We went through the entry models and they were dumb dumb dumb. Learned our lesson and got the 960 and it's at least as smart as a preschooler. It moves in straight lines when cleaning, will return to its base when charge drops, an...

re: Where do you stand on net neutrality? - JohnnyKilroy
[quote]The government is infinitely more powerful than private industry, especially when you give the government power, which is then wielded by the ISPs anyway. Only then the big ones have the force of government to kill competition. [/quote] That's funny, because now ISPs will have the ability ...

re: Where do you stand on net neutrality? - JohnnyKilroy
[quote]I have had 5 ISPs. Every time one does something I don't like, I take my money away and give it to one I do like. I don't have to trust them. I am in control. [/quote] Jesus Christ. Congrats on being in the ~5% of the population with that option. ...

[quote]MADISON RIVER: In 2005, North Carolina ISP Madison River Communications blocked the voice-over-internet protocol (VOIP) service Vonage. Vonage filed a complaint with the FCC after receiving a slew of customer complaints. The FCC stepped in to sanction Madison River and prevent further blocki...

[quote]f you've all contacted your congressmen and they won't/can't help you on NN....then it's time to put in a new congressman.[/quote] I have done this and every Louisiana legislator has essentially stated that they will support whatever the FCC says regardless of the popular opinion. This...

[quote]I still think the fight needs to be at the local regulatory level.....it appears this will have to be a grass roots level fight. It is a fight that has been won before....Lafayette, LA fought for years (probably a decade or more) before LUS fiber became a reality for its citizens. If Lafayett...

re: Where do you stand on net neutrality? - JohnnyKilroy
[quote]What did they get smacked down by? I assume this also preceded NN.[/quote] They were smacked down by a bunch of federal judges. Federal government saw that there was a need to clarify/update the existing regulatory framework and that's how we got NN. That's typically how these thin...

[quote]I don't believe that they will be....but I don't see, and have seen no proof of, any way that we are better off with NN than we were prior to 2015. If anything data caps and bandwidth pricing has gotten worse since then. [/quote] You should read up on what actions preceded the implementati...

re: FCC to free Internet From Obama's “Net Neutrality” Rules - JohnnyKilroy
FCC says it wants to reduce their "power" by removing NN rules. Telecoms say that NN stifles competition. Why does anyone trust these two entities? No way the government would ever lie right? Certainly not! ...

[quote]I'm not 100% convinced that what the ISPs would do without Net Neutrality would be worse that would that would do with it. Like you said they already control the FCC 100%.[/quote] So why do the isps want to do away with net neutrality? What is their motivation? You think they are doing it ...

re: FCC to free Internet From Obama's “Net Neutrality” Rules - JohnnyKilroy
