Net neutrality already messing with my loading. Damn.

I just heard on the radio that it won't effect people overnight.

Already, I see things loading slowly and other things trying to open up that I have to kill.

I wasn't slow yesterday, and right now, it's the middle of the night, so, sites aren't overloaded.

I think they're coming for us and they're not taking no for an answer.

1. "and other things trying to open up that I have to kill." - that's not a "net neutrality" issue...

that sounds like a website issue and possible adware infection.

3. Nobody has done anything yet.

Everything is working just fine for me. You might have a local problem with your ISP or your wifi.

6. Good article on Net Neutrality Repeal. Written so I even understand what it means.

The Net Neutrality Repeal Is Official. Here’s How That Could Affect You.

By Keith Collins

Snip>>>>>>>

What’s everyone worried about?

Many consumer advocates argued that once the rules were scrapped, broadband providers would begin selling the internet in bundles, not unlike cable television packages. Want access to Facebook and Twitter? Under a bundling system, getting on those sites could require paying for a premium social media package.

Another major concern is that consumers could suffer from pay-to-play deals. Without rules prohibiting paid prioritization, a fast lane could be occupied by big internet and media companies, as well as affluent households, while everyone else would be left in the slow lane.

Some small-business owners are worried, too, that industry giants could pay to get an edge and leave them on an unfair playing field.

E-commerce start-ups have feared that they could end up on the losing end of paid prioritization, with their websites and services loading more slowly than those run by internet behemoths. Remote workers of all kinds, including freelancers and franchisees in the so-called gig economy, could similarly face higher costs to do their jobs from home.

“Internet service providers now have the power to block websites, throttle services and censor online content,” Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democratic member of the commission who voted against the repeal, said in an emailed statement Monday. “They will have the right to discriminate and favor the internet traffic of those companies with whom they have pay-for-play arrangements and the right to consign all others to a slow and bumpy road.”

What I'm encouraged by is the individual states' actions. If enough states impose restrictions, it may become too cumbersome for the communication companies to implement.
