FCC's Net Neutrality Proposal a Win For Broadband Cos
Don't like proposal.
but it would also allow broadband providers to give select companies and their traffic preferential treatment
is what scares me the most out of all of this. So lets say ISP makes a deal with Facebook, Twitter, and Netflix that their traffic will become first class citizen that just hurt everyone else traffic on the internet from that ISP.
For example, I might want to stream youtube or Hulu but because its during peak hours and Netflix and Facebook and Twitter have all the bandwidth my connection to any other site could become so slow to be usable. I know this is an extreme case but it is what I'm scared this could happen because of greed.
ISPs can provide throughput at huge speeds, over 100 Gbps, at least where I am, and probably hugely more than that. Every single person in the area would need to be constantly streaming those sites for you to even notice any kind of slow down what so ever. And even then, you probably still wouldn't notice, it would need to be a very extreme situation.
Youtube can steam / work just fine at 480P rez with a 1Mbps connection just fine, again, at least it can where I am.
