    If they do, I'll no longer be a postpaid customer. I'll end up on some prepaid service.

    This BS calls for a class action lawsuit from postpaid subscribers.

    It doesn't warrant a lawsuit, because if/when this does come into play, it's going to be on the contract.

    Welcome to the future friends, where big brother knows what's good for you and your personal feelings and thoughts are not important because you're not part of the intellectual elite. The FCC panel, who consists of 5 people, get to decide what's best for us. Net neutrality is set to kill the internet as we know it. Get educated and call your representatives.

    I would rethink the title.... the FCC is supposed to regulate. They just dropped the ball on the last dozen supreme court cases challenging their authority to even regulate the internet. Know what's really messed up? Television & phone are considered communications but internet is not. Except when it comes to wire tapping.
    Allot Communications and Openet.... what a perversion. Well that's the way it goes! Now the definition of net neutrality fits with ISP's.... makes my stomach hurt.

    Wow, talk about taking things out of context... There's a lot of skewed information out there about the net neutrality regulations, and as an fyi, Verizon Wireless is fighting *for* Net Neutrality

    Yeah, I understand. My friend posted something about the Net Neutrality discussion the FCC had last week, there are rumors flying around everywhere and a lot of people are crying wolf... They're putting these doomsday things out as fact before the actual regulation changes are posted :)

    We will take a step back; in some form or another. It reminds me of how the internet used to be. I remember having to pay per minute on a baud modem.....only I wont be able to hide out in BBS boards. The main problem is the cable & telephone companies were permitted to become the main ISPs. That should have never been allowed.

    This is not D2 specific so I'm moving it over to the Droid General Forum so the masses can really have at it. :D

    My feelings are the President will step in if this happens. He owns a Blackberry, he will sympathize and yes, I did read the link in the post above mine. I'm not going to comment on that because it's sort of political and we don't allow political discussions in DF.
