When the new rules pass, you will see ISPs, Exede included no doubt, partner with some streaming providers and search providers. Here is what it will potentially look like:
Say Exede partners with Netflix and Yahoo. Better hope you like both services because other comparable services can be made to work like crap. Yea, try to stream your Prime now suckers.
Worst move made in a long time by any government agency, and that’s saying a lot.
We all know what happened when the government got involved with health insurance. I don't want the cost of internet access to double because of some stupid law.
I’m not against company partnerships. I’m not against synergies. I’m against the Mets, Patriots, and Celtics. Most especially the Duke Blue Devils.
I think most users missed the point of Net Neutrality.
Many thought this would mandate that ISP's such as ViaSat would have to do away with data caps and throttling.
It does prevent backbone carriers from charging a "tariff" to carry a certain type of traffic over their section of the Net that could have/ would have been passed unto the consumer.
Those of us that are on older plans such as Classic and Liberty are not forced to have throttled video. We have the option to turn off/on video throttling and Exede/Viasat told us that as soon as the option became available.
Call it what you want, but it is not dishonest at all.
