Forums - General Discussion - The Internet is falling

Lots of info on the future of the Internet and its not looking bright.

Basically they want to change the rules and add in service fees which give paid members benefits over free users etc.

Lets hope we stay on top of this or this will become a service we don't want to use and will be forced to pay for things we already use for free (Except for our Phone company bills).



Around the Network

I hope it's really cheap to buy connection to one server and use it to route everything.. I already subscribe to a VPN anyway.



What's the problem? A slow loading website is just cosmetic. No harm in that. Let's all just wait and do nothing until they put internet behind lootboxes.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

It's crazy, I already feel like the Internet is slower?

Tried to use Yahoo a few times, and some other websites and they're really struggling..

That guy Ajit Pai, he looks a lot like a brotherhood member, they only care about themselves and want to "control"(that's another word for screwing) most everybody else. You can see it in his body language, the man is clearly malicious in intent, very easy to notice.

You people brought down Sony and Nintendo, hopefully you can do something about this, that is if you can do it without the help of Microsoft's astroturf which helped the last few times. And if the war doesn't break right at the same time... they love to slip these things in when we're paying attention to something else..

That's like saying oh you have a smokers cough? Meh minor inconvenience, just keep going until you have cancer then we'll treat it.

Most people have that view and that's exactly the problem. That's why we have lootboxes now and that's why we voted for a complete moron in the White House that will do everything in his power to favor the rich and global conglomerates.

I'm just going to download enough porn to last me the rest of my life. Then, you can have your internet. I don't need it.



mZuzek loves AA batteries

the internet service has been trash for years with no improvement here in a metropolitan area. rates have gone up and speed has not for at least 4 or more years now.

if i could pay to make it better and better speeds at least its an option. i dont see a problem with that.

That is a very good idea. Very forward thinking.
