FCC: "Don't do that!"
ISPs: "Okay, we don't ever do that ;) "
More money continues to flood lobbyists.
I don't know how people in the US put up with the situation. The FCC seems to merely pretend to act in the public interest... Most of the evidence I read is that they act in the interests of ISP/Cable cartel.
You think its only in the US?
Maybe its not as widespread as I think but I've been around a few countries and its pretty much the same thing everywhere.
It's so horrible. If you can't properly stream netflix then the ISP is not doing it's job. Seriously, just give me what I pay for. The more I search for a new provider the more I realize they all do the same thing and you'll never have reliable internet. So frustrating.
Yeah becuase telling corporations to behave has always worked in the past. The FCC no longer has any balls, they like the FDA have been bought and sold. They aren't regulating anything and they certainly arent imposing any heavy fines on ISPs that practice unethical business conduct like Comcast.
looks like some webs sites be go to are slower now lol
Wait the FCC can't regulate the internet
Yeah what they say plus I want all the information of the individuals and groups that have been attacking my internet connection and putting through the denial of service attacks that I have endured each day, each week, each month, for well over a year and going on more than 3 years. Also make them quit fooling us when we are buying our own hardware. I want the most upgraded version of software for my modem and the fact that the modem suppliers and ISP providers keep pushing the issue back and forth to each other without putting the updates through is a scam on their part and I am sick and tired completely for years on the issue.
Yay! Fighting for the illusion of choice at best. Unless you're in a major city the chances of you having more than 1 or 2 options is slim anyway. I would love to "shop" for my broadband, but TWC is the only option around me... Fighting for transparency is such a small part of the bigger problem. I imagine it would be a non-issue if we can win the fight for an open-Internet.
yep. Problem is we are an incredibly divided country. Just the way our two party system likes it.
It's just a bad situation. Most everyone I know complains about their ISP, but so few choices makes it hard to hold them accountable.
Having bad internet is the most annoying thing. Wish my internet ran a little faster personally but not much you can do about it.
