    We are debating the proper decision. What a stupid comment. You can keep your head in the clouds, but back here on planet earth stopping net neutrality means expanding government sponsored monopolies. That's reality, like it or not.

    Probably both. What satellite ISP's grapple with is limited bandwidth. If too many people use too much of it. It slows down performance for everyone. So they sell a data allowance package just like the cell phone providers do. The throttling occurs when that allowance is used up. They open things up in the middle of the night when internet usage slows. That is a limitation of the equipment since all of it has to fit in an orbiting satellite. At the same time they are happy to sell more allowance to users and that certainly contributes to corporate profit. The cell phone providers, as far as I know, don't throttle, they just tack "minutes" onto the bill. I don't like that at all.

    You can't manage a satellite system like you do a land based one. Unless there is an exception for satellite, the new rule will put satellite ISP's out of business by limiting the number of subscribers they can handle. It will raise subscription costs a whole bunch.

    Enabling net neutrality means expanding govt monopolies. Youll see.

    This government lies about everything, how could anyone but a goosestepping blind follower trust anything they say? Kiss your 1st amendment rights goodbye on the internet if they somehow muscle this through.

    Title II regulates telephone service and cable TV already. Would you say your first amendment rights were taken away by that?
