    Everyone scrub your posts. Big brother is now regulating the internet!

    time just told us its going to be ruined.. and you will charged differently by content now.. it will up wildly in what you will pay in taxes and fees along with tons of content dissappearing..

    tell me again how it got improved?

    much like healthcare it was better befor Obama..and this is a raping of our freedoms

    I think the saddest thing is that in this day and age where it is becoming more of a concern of how to move info using Wifi, and companies appearing to answer that question, they may not have a spot with these new rules. Small companies will not prosper in this new environment.

    Re: Live feed to the FCC vote on Net Neutrality.

    For me the fact that access to the Internet is throttled, prohibits growth of emerging tech, but also costs us a lot of money. The United States doesn't even rank in the top 20 in Internet speed. The real question is why does the idea of regulated Internet spook people off? When the current providers already provide ****ty service at a premium price.

    Again, this decision is not a political or partisan decision. The fact that the biggest proponents of this decision like Ted Cruz receive insane campaign contributions from Comcast should say something. It is, was, and always will be able money. Unregulated access to the internet benefits everyone.

    How long should I hold onto some of the comments in this thread predicting regulation of this site before I can bring them back up and show them to the chicken littles?
