    Now what part of my statement would you like to discuss?
    “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.

    A different discussion? The point Deuce was making in this discussion had nothing to do with breaking up monopolies. Perhaps you're the one "obviously mixing issues."

    No perhaps about it.

    Would you like to discuss my post or continue to troll? If the latter... I'll pass.

    You're perfectly free to take an attitude with me if you like -- I don't mind. My goal was simply to point out that you misunderstood his post and I accomplished that goal.

    Be well.

    And I pointed out there was no misunderstanding and asked you to either discuss the topic or I'll pass on any further discussion.

    If you are on the side of small businesses, then you are 100% supportive of net neutrality. Net neutrality merely reinstates what has been the case with broadband use until recently, when the telecom companies came up with a scheme to blackmail businesses. This merely gives the FCC the right to respond to complaints about mafioso tactics.

    Internet costs are not dropping, except in your universe, I guess. I have paid the same amount for the same speed for years. What may have changed are the creation of fictitious high speeds that telecom companies will sell you for less per mbps than if you get, say 3 mbps. But you neither need, nor do you get, 100 mbps, in most cases. Streaming movies only needs about 6 mbps.

    You may not know, but your broadband provider throttles its internet highway, except for certain businesses that have paid up to ensure its services won't be throttled. This regulation seems to put an end to the blackmail, and an end to the broadband provider deciding which services you will be able to see w/o throttling. Throttling can make a service unuseable. Netflix isn't throttled, since it pays about $100M a year to Comcast to prevent that.

    My provider doesn't do that because I have the old timey dsl, which is not throttled.

    Throttling is what some broadband providers do instead of updating their equipment to meet demand.
    And you know all that how???!!? There was no transparency leading up to the vote, the over-sight committees had not yet seen the regulations. This has sniveling Pelosi BS all over, 'they needed to pass it so we can know what is in it'.
    The Gruber-crat is strong in this one!

    I didn't say we need to break them up, im saying we need to regulate them. Monopolies are in unique position to abuse the public, and high-speed internet is a sort of natural monopoly. There are physical, financial, and technical limitations to true competition. Arbitrarily breaking up companies doesn't solve the issue, as the local cable company is still going to be a local monopoly.

    Hence the need for regulation.
