I think I want Santa to bring me a new computer. My old one is moving slower than I am. I definitely am a two-monitor girl - I mean, how else am I supposed to check email and my Facebook at the same time???? - so currently, I have 2 monitors and this works for me just perfectly. Can I get one big monitor, split the thing, and pretty much have the same two-monitor experience?
Here are a couple of videos that may explain it and how it can effect you, better than I have.
Here's What You Need To Know About Net Neutrality - Screen Junkies News
What is net neutrality and how could it affect you? - BBC News
Well, as I feared, it is official. Net Neutrality has been repealed in the US.
ISPs are now free to play Netflix fast and Hulu slow if one pays more. They can block new technologies from wide usage if they feel they or a partner is working on another competing technology. They can block you from accessing any sites they may not agree with so no more planned Parenthood info if the ISP is owned by Pro-life businessmen or maybe or pro-drugwar ISPs can block web access to marijuana shops in states where it is legal. Of course you can always vote with your wallet, drop your ISP and access a new one you trust or offers what you want... if you are lucky. But those of you in Rural areas may not have another choice. Our Internet access came down to two companies, so we went with the one that we did not hate, but the one we hated bought the smaller one so now they are the only choice in town and they can now control what I have access too.
If you think it is not a big deal, remember there was a time when Facebook was a startup and we had no neutrality law and a certain major player ISP banned Facebook from their services as it was competing with some idea of their own. Facebook may never have come into existence without the neutrality laws. So what new technology or service will we never have now because of the whims of big business?
But more than a few groups are swearing the fight is not over yet.
