    Satellite companies will lower your speed in a second if you exceed upload/download limits.

    And phone companies limit you on data as well, though don't know if they cap your speed.

    And net neutrality isn't about whether or not they cap your data. It's about whether a particular site will get served to you faster because of who they pay off vs. a site that doesn't pay anyone off. Net neutrality stops that

    What many conservatives think about Ted Cruz's opposition to net neutrality. Spoiler: they aren't happy with him

    After nonsensical comments on Net Neutrality, conservatives rage against Ted Cruz

They have zero to do with costs a Tier 1 provider like Verizon charges a customer for data usage. Those (tarrifs, USF and Taxes/fees are fees over and above the company's pricing and depending on the state, are a % calculation on the amount of dollars charged to the customer.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I'm aware. It was an example of information that is out there.

    Seems rather recurring and typical of this administration's regulatory and legislative agenda, doesn't it?

    Along with 'You can't read it until after you vote for it' (applies to ObamaCare and these FCC Regs - all 320 pages of them)

    No permissible in the eyes of this administration.

    Yeah, it is, but not the providers.
    Liberal philanthropist George Soros and the Ford Foundation have lavished groups supporting the administration’s “net neutrality” agenda, donating $196 million and landing proponents on the White House staff, according to a new report.

    And now, as the Federal Communications Commission nears approving a type of government control over the Internet, the groups are poised to declare
    victory in the years-long fight, according to the report from MRC Business, an arm of the conservative media watchdog, the Media Research Center.

    “The Ford Foundation, which claims to be the second-largest private foundation in the U.S., and Open Society Foundations, founded by far-left billionaire George Soros, have given more than $196 million to pro-net neutrality groups between 2000 and 2013,” said the report, authored by Media Research Center’s Joseph Rossell, and provided to Secrets.

    “These left-wing groups not only impacted the public debate and funded top liberal think tanks from the Center for American Progress to Free Press.

    They also have direct ties to the White House and regulatory agencies. At least five individuals from these groups have ascended to key positions at the White House and FCC,” said the report which included funding details to pro-net neutrality advocates.

    It quoted critic Phil Kerpen, president of American Commitment, saying, “The biggest money in this debate is from the liberal foundations that lavish millions on self-styled grassroots groups pushing for more and more regulation and federal control.”

    Groups funded by Soros and Ford include the Center for American Progress, the American Civil Liberties Union, and Media Matters for America. They received a total of $54,226,097 from the Ford and Open Society Foundations.

    What I can't figure is why. How is it an advantage to Soros, et. al. that the Federal Government has it's fingers in the Internet.

    Regulating the Internet like a public utility? Just exactly how innovative have public utilities been over the last 20 years? Not really. Expecting the same to happen to the Internet. Government involvement always means higher prices and worse service.
