  1. I don’t see the dystopia here. You have to pay to get internet access; why not allow people the option of subscribing to cheaper internet with more limited access?

    Net Neutrality, as I understand it, is essentially like telling people they can either have a luxury vehicle, or no car at all.

    Sometimes it’s worth to have a crappy car for a while. What’s so wrong with the idea of letting people decide the extent of access they are willing to pay for?

  2. Perfect example. No money, no access. No ability to subscribe, no empowerment. Non-neutral.

  3. Perfect example. No money, no access. No ability to subscribe, no empowerment. Non-neutral.

    If you have no money, then you probably have some rather more serious issues to deal with than getting full access to the internet, wouldn’t you think? Like…food and shelter.

    Answer me this: what does net neutrality solve, in this scenario? It merely turns it into an either-or scenario. Either you can afford internet, or you can’t. Without net neutrality, people who might not have felt it was worth it to pay for total access have the option of a cheaper, lower quality alternative. I’m not pretending that this would be, indeed, the lower quality alternative–merely emphasizing that I’d rather people have more options to choose from than fewer.

  4. Adam,
    Net Neutrality means keeping the private corporations and governments out of controlling the medium. Once you allow corporate gatekeepers to determine who gets access, it is corrupted and not worth having. Something else will evolve to replace it I am certain. Access is already free for those who are willing to go to the trouble of reaching it – public libraries, etc., it’s not about the fee one pays for access – it’s about choosing to WHOM that fee goes. I want an option besides Comcast and Verizon. It’s like having a choice of radio stations that isn’t Clear Channel.

  5. Ok, I may be dumb, but your explanation just confused me. Net Neutrality isn’t about making it illegal to provide different levels of access, but rather is about who you are paying when you pay for internet? What?
