I think the big mistakes most conservatives make is they think NN is some Liberbal agenda, and it's not at all. It will guarantee that the greedy corporate pigs can't tell us what we can do with our internet connection. For once it's a law that protects our freedom, rather than limit it like all the ISPs would like to do.
Clover is dead on with his post. It's very scary right now that there is nothing stopping these guys from doing what they want to our internet connections. Comcast advertised an unlimited plan, but the truth to that is that by unlimited they mean 250GB a month. That's not unlimited. With streaming video and other downloads getting larger, it will not take but a few years for an average consumer to consume more than that on average. As more content goes HD and we use the internet for more things. This cap is the stupidest thing I've ever heard of. You tell me I can download 8Mb/s, but tell me I can only download so much with it. That's like super sizing my drink, then telling me I can only put 16oz. of cola in my supersized cup. Make no mistake about it, they have already began limiting our rights as consumers, and for once it's the government trying to protect them and not take them away.
Parker Griffith just takes the usual right wing stance on Net Neutrality. I've sent him several letters about it and all I get back is the crap about a free market space for the corporate pigs. He's all for giving rights to the billion dollar companies, but not protecting those of the people he represents. I would urge everyone to send him a letter today or an email even if you haven't supporting Net Neutrality. Otherwise in the not to distant future you may see things like this when you go to shop for an internet provider. http://boingboing.net/2007/09/...-nonneutral-isp.html
Hmmm Look familiar???? Kinda reminds you of those cable TV packages we all so know and love. Without NN, it's just a matter of time before we start seeing this from all the ISPs.
