NN just means that TWC will never face any real competition because the barrier to market entry is too high.

NN prevents shit like this happening but an open market allows you to find someone else rather than the 1-2 ISPs that most regions have available to choose from.

>NN just means that TWC will never face any real competition because the barrier to market entry is too high.
No, NN will mean TWC would never be allowed to do this. NN doesn't stifle competition in any way.

>> No.60553481

Companies should just what advertisers are doing on Youtube. Group up and tell ISP that if they try to pull this shit nobody using them will be able to use their services. I imagine nearly nobody would sign for for internet that couldn't use Netflix, Google, or LoL. Of course if the ISP did do something both sides would lose a lot of customers.

>You use more internet you pay more

In theory that would be the correct thing to do, just like electricity or tap water, the more you use the more you pay... HOWEVER Harry...

What completely crosses the line, is the fact that they are "negotiating" with other company that sells a service which needs internet access (Riot games creators of LoL) and then it becomes basically, extortion.

When govt barriers to entry are extremely high for competition to come in that should easily show how fucked the govt has made the internet situation in the usa. If you want to see how fucked it is just read on google bringing in fiber internet and how much govt red tape there is, the easiest one to read on is google and san antonio. I believe google was planning on using pre-exisiting boxes from comcast/at&t/etc and renting out the space but those companies blocked them from being able to use that city property. They then had to make their own facilities throughout the city and got the designs okay'd back in 2014. They then started to build in spring of 2016, and at the beginning of 2017 the city of san antonio put a hold on their construction because some of the buildings weren't in the best spots. As of end of april the building is still paused with the ball in google's court to find out how to either choose better places or to make those huts less obtrusive to the surrounding neighborhood.

This particular case had nothing to do with the specific net neutrality laws in place though, the cable company was sued by the state of New York for deceptive business practices and false advertising by promising reliable access to Netflix and online games.

Not true. Title 47, Part 8 was effective November 20, 2011 but sections concerning blocking and unreasonable discrimination weren't enforceable until internet providers were reclassified as common carrier telecommunications effective June 12, 2015. That last part is what the FCC is now proposing to turn back.

NN isn't strong enough, and I don't support cucked measures. The only regulation I'd get behind is for all ISPs, including celluar companies, to treat all bandwidth equally, meaning no "you can't use your bandwidth for x servers or for hotspots", all data is treated equally, for it to be illegal for an ISP to monitor or log any internet activity unless a warrant is issued by a judge, and for it to be illegal to throttle without pre-negotiated cause (data cap hit, network congestion, etc.).

>morons actually said that removing net neutrality would be a bad thing

Based. Turned out better than expected.

And people forget that in the future most people will access the internet through cell towers. Shit like 4G LTE and 5G are more than enough to post on facebook and watch netflix. Only the power users and businesses will use land line connections anymore. This means anyplace that currently doesn't have competition will almost overnight have tons of competition with Verizon/AT&T/Spring/etc becoming an option.

The free market would mean that squeezing riot for internet access is a profitable thing to do.
Competition? they'd do the same thing since free market is about maximising money, not about maximising consumer satisfaction.
For example, slavery is unequivocally a profitable thing to do. In a free market there is no company that would not use slaves.

>> No.60557668

>For example, slavery is unequivocally a profitable thing to do. In a free market there is no company that would not use slaves.
And in a free market the consumer decides who he gives money to. If they start doing stupid shit they fail.

>> No.60557670

>In a free market there is no company that would not use slaves.
When most people say free market, they usually mean just the market is free, but there is a leviathan that punishes impediments on others freedom. Usually they don't mean complete anarchy of society.

>> No.60559202

Monopolies are dealt with by either breaking them up or regulating them.

>> No.60559211

Except that's not true. There's a third way- the free market. If you deregulate and remove the government, monopolies will dissolve naturally. Just like how monarchy dissolved naturally and painlessly.

>> No.60559230

Net meaning "internet" and Neutrality meaning "neutral"

Meaning the ISP is agnostic to the content being passed and concerns itself only with gross bandwidth.

This concludes the extensive definition of the term.

>> No.60559260

Libertarianism is just like a martial art. It makes no sense in the real world but just like "if you were coming at me from this angle, and I were standing like this, I could totally flip you" libertarians think "if the market were precisely this saturated for good/service X, and there were roughly Y people within the premises, then there would never be any monopolies and everybody would get the lowest price possible"
