Internet freedom that is. The Internet has always, for the most part, been free and somewhat unregulated entity. But, recently, it has been under attack by greedy money-grubbing companies trying to break her webpages and slow everything down unless you have the money to pay. I am talking about Net Neutrality.
We must take a stand against the man! In this case the man happens to be four companies trying to hijack the internet for their own twisted evil money-making schemes. Comcast (NBC), Verizon, Time Warner, and AT&T have all decided they want more money. In order to do this they want to divide the our precious Interwebs in half. They want to create a “Fast Lane” and a “Slow Lane” for web pages.
What does this mean? It means, my dear friends, they want to fuck us up the ass without lube. How will this effect us? Simple, they intend to sell the “Fast Lane” for a small fortune. If you don’t have the small fortune to pay them, then you get to look at a nice loading screen.
This is nothing more than greed, and it is also double dipping because they already put a limit on how fast our connection goes. Think of it like this, you already pay them for fast connections, now they want to have us pay for the fast connection of our fast connection. Basically, they are saying you have a fast connection but we are going to slow it down and make you pay extra for a faster connection. It is like they are trying to turn our fast connections (Cable, DSL, Fiber, ETC..) back into a shit-tastic dial-up and re-sell us the faster connection (Cable, DSL, Fiber, ETC…) at an even high price.
