    This was bound to happen, but congress have the power to reverse it. If you want to save net neutrality and have a free, open and equal internet in the U.S, now is the bloody time to take action.

    This Net Neutrality did not exist before 2015, I had no problems with the Net before 2015 . I do not think Congress has the authority to over turn this decision. That is why it is going to The Supreme Court.

    As I am not US based this change has no direct effect on my net use.

    What was the status of the US net access before this act ? were the ISP's all abiterilly charging for access to some or all sites.

    The only sites that I need to pay for access, the charges are imposed/enforced by the sites themselves, as the media creators, the Netflix, and other film and music sites charge and there is a current trend by old fashioned media sources like newspapers, whose market is being destroyed by free access internet sites, to set up paywalls on their own News sites, Which I and I think most users avoid and use the free sites.

    Also I think if my ISP charged me extra to access Netflix then the people at Netflix would be the ones to stop it as it would endanger their cash flow by raising the cost to the end user, potentially losing customers due to higher usage priceand all without without netflix getting their share

    And I'm sure Rupert Murdoch would not mind if an isp made money off users wanting to visit his paywalled news sites

    No, at one time Hulu used to be free. I do not have to pay anything to get to any of Rupert Murdoch's sites, MS even has a free app for that. As posted this will go To The Supreme Court, I for one do not believe it will have an affect on anyone, before 2015 The Net was as it is now just a tad slower.

    I have read a lot of the predictions of doom and gloom that have been discussed here. What is being talked about are the worst case scenarios. I think, as with most things, we never see the worst case scenarios. Will some things change, possibly. But things are constantly changing. Also, as with everything else, 'The devil is in the details' which we don't know for sure. We have no choice but to just wait and see what happens.

    I really have no opinion on this issue because I don't have enough factual decision to make an informed opinion. What I do know is until about 2 years ago there was no Net Neutrality. I can't say I have noticed any difference in pre 2015 and post 2015. I suspect I will see very little difference in post 2017. May Netflix charge more for their service? Possibly, but they would have anyway sooner or later. May an ISP charge more money to connect to Netflix? Maybe. But, if Netflix, as some reports say, are using 30% of the US bandwidth, some changes were inevitable with or without Net Neutrality. If Netflix uses anywhere near that much bandwidth, they should pay more. Yes, that will probably be passed onto us. However, if they raise prices very much, they will lose customers and revenue. So, I don't expect a substantial increase. Their shareholders wouldn't like losing money. In the end, we as consumers, will control the prices to a great extent. And again, I think much of whatever changes there will be were going to happen anyway. I noticed no change before Net Neutrality and I suspect there will be very few changes after net neutrality. I believe many of the changes we will see were inevitable no matter what happens. I just want to see the details. Just my 2 cents.
