Also point out that data caps are nothing but a shakedown/extortion, because people have been stressing the network like never before for the past year and it hasn’t fallen over.

I made a complaint and did a recorded interview with the FCC about monopoly “broadband” practices in my city/state. I laid out the whole case about which providers I had access to, how they did not meet even the shitty “broadband” qualifications as stated in the FCC’s guidelines, and that if I wanted “broadband” as stated I had only one choice. Hence, monopoly. Some unfortunate dork had to listen to my rant and then just say “thanks for your feedback” and state “this is not broadband monopoly” … I guess because I still had the choice to I don’t know, move to a different city to get broadband from a different provider or something… Signed up for the Starlink pilot, I can’t wait

I’m not sure how this FCC will do, but thank god that POS Ajit Pai is gone. 25 down, 3 up is high speed? How do you even say that with a straight face?

Like the railroad, electricity, or telephone before it, internet has gone from a luxury to a necessity
