I don't understand how internet providers can get away with this. If you are paying for a guaranteed speed, can't you sue for failure to meet that speed wherever you go? How can Verizon sell a 150mbps package and only allow me to use 3 Megs for Netflix?

No one is 'getting away' with anything. The article suggests the possibility of such a thing. Not an example of an actual company announcing this as policy.

The article is clearly leftist pablum designed to elicit responses like yours. Don't get sucked in.

The real facts are that internet providers are still regulated by the FTC and you always have the option to file suit if they breach their service contract. So it isn't 'anything goes' like the progressive media claims.

Except... that's exactly what Comcast did with Bittorrent

Let's not forget the whole letting peering points purposely go to hell just to extract $$$ from content providers.

People have a very short memory (yourself included).. These were the reasons that NN was put into place.. Because big ISP was long on their way to doing these things.

But hey, big business is going to be good THIS TIME right, since anytime we've let them be "free" before they've always just screwed the employee and customer

Maybe you should actually Have some "real facts" before you start babbling about things you obviously know nothing about.

The fact is no provider guarantees anything, and if you actually ever read a t&c's you would know that. You also cannot "file suit", because they all have an arbitration clause that disallows you from suing.

At most you can go in front of a crooked arbitrator whose income depends on the leech providers, and so they never ever ever rule against the company.

Leftist pablum indeed, deep thoughts.
