    Wealthy neighborhoods, and upscale apartment buildings will start offering LANs to have private, unregulated, unmonitored communications between well-to-do people, and the common man will be shut out.

    Financial Trading will begin to occur, between the people with true-Wealth to trade, within these dedicated, private, LAN networks, and along with it will be unlimited, uncensored Political discourse.

    As the technology gains usage by the wealthy elite, it will get cheaper to buy, because allot more of it is being manufactured.

    As the technology get cheaper, many common people, interested in un-throttled MMO Gaming access, will adopt these LANs for circles of friends to game together.

    As the common people begin to invest in the LAN tech for gaming, they will also begin to use the freedom to have un-Leftie-Censored Political Discourse.

    The Lefties seem to think that "Net-Neutrality" is going to give them a backdoor opportunity to shut down all of that Politically Incorrect discourse, giving them censorship control of political speech and thought.

    The PC Censorship of the Internet will drive people to escape the Internet, in the same way that the PC Censorship of the MSM media drove people away from the MSM into Internet Blogs and News forums.

    The PC Censorship will fail!

    Your statement was

    "Net Neutrality means no discrimination, and it protects Internet users' ability to do or download whatever they want online without interference from the phone or cable company."

    And Id like to know where that ability would be if it wasnt for the phone company or the cable company providing them the internet in the first place. It certainly wasnt the internet user who developed the system, and invested trillions in setting it up.

    Much like the FCC attempted to control speech on the radio with the fairness doctrine. The govt decides what 'lawful content' is, what is fair, and then sets about regulating everything else into the ground.

    Comcast has at least 6 competitors in my market. They deliver the fastest internet at a reasonable price. And once the govt becomes a competitor, they will operate on 100% subsidies.

    Yeah they did. Look at the name on the truck laying cables across the country. The name on the building where all the servers, routers, and switches are. Cable companies spend hundreds of billions a year building and maintaining the internet.

    Users are paying for their service, and collectively they do invest huge money. But I do think I get your point.

    So you don't know how it will work. Lawful doesn't have a thing to do with "fair" and if the leftie government decides that right wing views are "UNlawful" then they won't need no stinkin' FCC or net neutrality rules, they'll have rounded up all you right wingers into FEMA camps!

    No, you have a massive misunderstanding of how the internet works. Cable Companies only lay coaxial line which just creates a glorified LAN (Local Area Network) which connects you to the internet. It's Telecom companies that lay the backbone, the Fiber Optics lines which allows massive amounts of data. Also there is only a few select cities in which are "hubs".. think Chicago, LA, New York. So do a traceroute and you will find your ISP (cable) only connects you to the internet, it doesn't get you where you want to go. If you are getting your internet from Cable you are limited in your band to about 400/20. If your getting your service from a telecom such as AT&T and Verizon FiOS you can get 1gig easily.

    US internet backbone is the NSFNET which was a PUBLIC/PRIVATE partnership which in 1989 was final open to the public.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken
