    What? No. They use a lot of bandwidth and they pay for it. You seem to be yet another person who fundamentally misunderstands net neutrality.

    Ridiculous.

    Whew! That was close. Good thing the government stepped in and saved us! Because, you know, the internet was getting to be a problem, but not anymore. Who wants to bet that we will soon need new fees and taxes added on to our bills so the government can pay for the cost of fixing the internet?

    Yes, its because thats where they sold their product and people bought it. Same reason there isnt a hardees near by.

    Pick your timeframe. What is "soon?" We'll bet a forum donation on it, amount of your choosing.

    There is a congressional moratorium on internet taxes still in effect, and the fact sheet released previously specifically states the order will not require internet providers to contribute to the USF.

    Agreed. One hundred dollars, as of yesterday.

    Seeing as your own criteria was "only able to get internet from your local government," you've already lost. Those cities run their own broadband network, but they aren't the only option. You still have the option of whatever local cable company is operating.

    We both know you're not honest enough to pay up, though.

    And the ISPs are doing their best to stop this alternative. I believe the new FCC regulations allow these and will stop laws against public networks.

    In underserved areas, these public networks are very appealing. I wish my area would do it....

    You're obviously mixing issues --- breaking up monopolies and the FCC regulations of the internet are not the same thing and you know it. The FTC and the courts bust monopolies, the FCC does NOT.

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.

    He didn't say anything about breaking up monopolies.
