Re: network neutrality

I hope it goes threw and starts to punish companies for throttling and capping and charging overages for internet use.
I simply cannot understand your twisted logic.

* I am an ISP.
* I have to buy my bandwidth from a higher tier provider.
* You want me to give you all the bandwidth you want and want ME to pay for it.

Perhaps a simple analogy. I am a gas station owner and I buy gas in bulk from a fuel distributor. Now just because I sell gas, you want me to give you all the gas you want, even if it means I have to pay for it out of my own pocket.

It cost me...yes, I have to PAY for the bandwidth my customers use. I cap them at 30 GB per month, its in my contract. If you exceed 2 GB per 24-hours, I throttle your connection, its in my contract. If you don't like it, don't sign the contract.

This is a network neutral method of managing bandwidth. I don't see an issue with it as long as you are not granted a right of way which creates a monopoly in your service area.

I think the whole capping ant throttling thing is another way to screw over the consumer. The network providers like Laval 3 don't cap or throttle their connections what gives the ISP's that write to do so. The ISP's that CAP and throttle connections are a bunch of GREEDY bastards. Also weir are not talking about gas here were talking about internet use here.
