I pay BIG BUCKS for my Internet!

I pay BIG BUCKS for my Internet, MUCH MORE then people in other countries pay (and they get faster service to boot!). I should be able to do what I want with it-without big companies telling me what I can and can not do. Already they have not only raised rates, but eliminated UUCP and Usenet. They routinely block port 25, making it impossible to use my company's email server.

This crap is like telling me that I can only drive my car to certain stores to shop.

I don't WANT turnpikes on the Internet, thank you very much!

How is an ISP's decision to discontinue provision of services such as UUCP and Usenet related to Net Neutrality? Are they blocking access to, or throttling traffic to/from, actual UUCP and Usenet providers?

UUCP and Usenet aren't, but blocking port 25 is a violation of net neutrality principles. Albeit a widely accepted one now since at this point you should have an option to use a more secure port to send emails such as 443 or 587 (outlook's SMTP over SSL). That isn't to say that port 25 can't be secured to use TLS and other solid security measures, but it normally isn't.

I dont know what kind of Business class service does not allow usage of port 25... You probably need to stop using residential services and move to a business class service.

Business class services will not block any ports, as far as i've seen and experienced.

what is this Net Neutrality principles you speak of? I've never seen anywhere that says an ISP can not block Port 25. In fact most block incoming on port 80 as well.

Maybe the Company should change their outgoing mail server to something else?

Which might be why I didn't include port 25 blocking or discussion thereof in my comment...
