    There you go. I had in fact downloaded this already, but my point was that it was an issue to read so many articles and see so many things online that were 3rd, 4th or 5th+ hand information. Citing the ruling is imperative to keeping the points made by any side relevant.

    But that still leaves the question to where the money is going to come from. The cable/ISP companies want to keep the same profit margins, so they need to acquire the $$$ from one source or another. If Net Neutrality is upheld, then you can only expect cable prices to rise.

      Broadband access (mobile, or cable) will always continue to have increasing rates as long as it is controlled by just a few large ISPs with little to no alternative.

      I would think the "goal" would be to invoke an environment where smaller ISPs could compete, and thusly create a more competitive marketplace which tends to lower rates. The problem with that is the building of the infrastructure needed to provide homes with broadband and the significant initial cost of doing so.

      Repealing current net neutrality regulations would (seemingly) only allow the large ISPs to have even more power/control allowing them to grow larger and so forth.

      Alternatively, individuals could potentially purchase broadband access from a Tier II provider at a huge cost and then attempt to provide service to a base of customers - basically creating small "mom & pop ISPs"... https://www.quora.com/Is-it-possible...without-an-ISP

      [So, you want to get on the information superhighway without going to the on-ramp? Get electricity without the last mile wiring into your house? Water without a mains pipe?

      Well, the Internet Service Provider provides the service of connecting you to the Internet. That said, it’s possible to bypass the ISP and connect directly to a Tier-2 ISP like Hurricane Electric, Telia Carrier or Level3. Here’s a list: Tier 2 network

      Be prepared that this connection will be far more expensive since they only sell in bulk, but you could always re-sell some bandwidth to recoup the cost.

      What will you name your ISP?]

Net neutrality is all about internet service providers treating all data on the internet the same, and not discriminate or charge differently by user, content, website, platform, application, or method of communication. I.e. internet service providers shouldn't intentionally block, slow down (throttle) or charge money for specific websites and online content.
        I completely agree with you. To be honest, I am not concerned about it at all. It has nothing to do with my business.

          Methinks people are missing the point, I don´t think that the danger is having to pay through the nose for faster services but in the way information is freely accessed. For instance what if the Republican powers behind your ISP don´t like your left wing snowflake attitude and decide to censor you? Or vice versa. What if Breitbart gets it´t grubby hands on a provider and has you jump through nazi propaganda before you can view youtube? Or your provider doesn´t like all the porn you would like to watch? We all know that Facebook sells your data, can governments get their hands on it? Police agencies? The internet is up for grabs and those with deep pockets will get it, you and I won´t. The two tier internet has been a threat long enough and now it´s here.
