When you Pay for an internet service at a certain speed, then you as a customer own that much bandwith to do as you want every month as long as your bill is paid. In reality what happened was not ‘DeRegulation’ . The court ruled that your internet service provider now has the right to tell you how much internet service you can use for any particular thing. In other words your service provider can Regulate your service as they please and raise your rate at any time they feel you are using more bandwith for any certain application.
They gave your internet service provider the right to cap your bandwidth when using Bittorrent or P2P applications. In plain english….. They said you no longer have that right.
The FCC was trying to protect the right of consumers of internet service. You just lost another right to big business.
I personally agree with the DC court. I believe less FCC regulation of Internet service providers is a good thing. Newer and faster technology advances will increasingly provide more consumer options for obtaining high speed Internet access. Informed consumers and free market competition will force broadband ISP’s to offer better services for competitive prices least they lose the customer to the competition that does.Reply
