This person was paying Netflix for content and paying Verizon for delivery. What he got wasn't what was promised...so now he has to pay an additional company for  "on time" delivery.

I'm nervous that the current state of affairs in Washington will result in more of this crap. #internetfreedom  is going down hill, and #ISP s like #comcast  and #verizon  are scamming us all. Tell the #FCC  you demand Title II reclassification!

Al Franken knows what's up. He's been the most vocal elected official on the subject of #internetfreedom . This video is long-winder, but he calls out:
 - Wheeler's proposal for internet governance is ripe with loopholes for fast lanes.
 - YouTube wouldn't exist if we didn't have net neutrality (because the founders wouldn't be able to compete with prices Google Video could pay for bandwidth).
 - The FCC has the power to and should reclassify #ISP s as Title II Telecommunications services
 - #comcast  has said that their merger with #TWC  will make their investors more money, and has not said they won't raise subscription rates.

Ever question the value (speed/cost) you're getting from your #ISP ? Turns out that someone has crunched the numbers for us. Strange that the three cities at the bottom are all in the US, huh?

Good thing #Comcast  and #TWC  are merging to provide increased competition and lower rates. ...oh, wait.

Kickstarter wants you to care about #netneutrality ! To quote the op-ed in Washington Post:

"Roadblocks would have created enormous logistical and financial hurdles — ones so big they might have shut us down before we got started. But that’s the world that start-ups will be born into if the FCC moves forward with its proposed rules"

"#FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler says that he supports net neutrality, yet at the same time he proposes rules that would create a two-tiered Internet." Kickstarter supports a path " to reclassify #ISPs as utilities under Title II of the Telecommunications Act, which the FCC left open as an option in its draft rules."

It's always interesting to follow the dollar. When seeing who's "gifting" to our elected and appointed policy makers, it's no wonder why the Internet is in danger.
