THE EFFECTS OF LOSING NET NEUTRALITY HAVE STARTED
Comcast forced Netflix to pay them a hefty fee in order to be able to stream content to their customers at a decent speed.
To make up for it, customers will see raised netflix prices mostly likely in the next few months. It’ll go up three dollars to $11.99. IN ADDITION, that’s for ONE device. If you want to stream on more than just your computer, like an internet TV, game console, moblie device, etc, etc, you will have to pay EVEN MORE.
This is just the beginning. Prices for internet are going to go up, and Comcast is well on its way to taking over everything and being a HUGE monopoly (it just bought Time Warner, the #2 cable company, and it going to buy all NFL content), which will, you guessed it, raise prices of everything even more.
BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO TO STOP THIS MADNESS?
Contact the FCC. Tell them to DO THEIR FUCKING JOB and classify broadband internet as a common carrier (like cable and mobile systems are). This will literally fix ALL PROBLEMS that the end of net neutrality is going to cause, and allow the internet to be equal and open to everyone once again.
