    Why do you need more then 15/5 speeds? What the FUCK are you doing on the internet that requires more then that?!
    Really? I don't feel that 50/5 is enough for me. I download every day and game. I still can't do both at the same time even when I'm only uploading at 100-200/kbs. It's shit. Uploading videos to youtube takes ages.

    Bumping with something face-palm worthy..

    http://www.whitehouse.gov/net-neutrality
    http://money.cnn.com/2014/11/10/tech...html?hpt=hp_t2

    President Obama says the Internet should be more heavily regulated to ensure it stays open and independent.
    In a public statement, Obama took a firm stand on a thorny issue: whether Internet providers can charge higher fees to place certain websites on Internet "fast lanes."
    FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has voiced his support for fast lanes, but the president urged Wheeler to change his mind.
    Maybe he shouldn't have appointed a (former?) CEO from a telecommunications lobbying group as the FCC chair..
    Spoiler: show

    why? this way he can have his cake and eat it too. he gets to pretend he cares and he also reaps all the funding that appointment earned him.

    apparently the guy is at least paying lip service to going along with it

    Saw this retweeted on my Twitter earlier. Sad thing is, some will buy into it just because he said Obamacare.

    "Obama is fighting for internet freedom, which companies are trying to take away." is the appropriate, jingoistic response to that.

    Want to get upset (or not get upset and realize how cynical you are..)? I bet you do!

    Here is exactly how much telecoms gave to the election and reelection campaigns of the politicians tasked with overseeing the FCC.

    Is it really that cheap to buy politicians?

    I'm too lazy to link (read: find) any articles about it, but there's overwhelming evidence that interest groups don't buy politicians as much as they donate to ones who already support their views. Since money is so important to our electoral process, it helps them win elections, thus putting people who already share their views into power. I imagine if you looked at speeches/the voting record of these politicians, they're all ones who have at some point favored these telecom companies.

    maybe, but when you're selling cars you stock the ones that make you the most money.
