The Open Internet & Innovation

I had Satellite internet once, and demand Net Neutrality

I had satellite internet once, before DSL arrived at my home, and it was a horrible horrible experience. Certain applications did not work (the update downloader for the popular game World of Warcraft comes to mind, as it was blocked altogether). Combined upload/download bandwidth was restricted to a ridiculously low rate (400 MEGABYTES per week on my first one). These practices are detrimental to the consumer, who PAYS for these services. Noone benefits but the corporations. Now certain ISP's outside the satellite market want to pull the same crap. I switched to DSL to get away from that kind of unfair treatment. Don't let them impose it on me. There is only one ISP in my area and if they decide to do that, I can do nothing.
