I guess I believe the Feds do what they want to do.
Net Neutrality was almost like a trial period and a very brief one at that since it
did not last but a couple of years if that.
So from the beginning, I have never noticed much difference in anything other
than the rising prices over time. That has taken place without Net Neutrality and
with Net Neutrality. It has not mattered in regards to internet provider costs.
There has for a very long time, been various data plans and higher speed packs.
The more you want, the more you pay for.
Everything rises in price over the years or most everything, just like food.
Look at everything the net has offered over all these years without Net Neutrality
and I personally have not noticed anything different with it other than the government
attempting control of the www.
I have Amazon Prime, Hulu, Netflix, all three for less than $30 per month. That's not
bad at all, at least not in my opinion. In regards to DISH, I pay approximately $49 per
month. Many people have cut their cable or satellite service totally and others like
myself, cut their package way down. So for approximately $80 a month there is always
something I can find to watch plus I have the Amazon cloud storage, book every month,
two day shipping, etc. I mean seriously, that is not bad at all.
In regards to mobile phone service.....well come on, there's a lot of people that have
wised up on that too. I once paid approximately $75 a month for years to Verizon and
in the last few years, I turned to TracFone and I don't have a monthly bill. I buy a new
Samsung smart phone with included service and minutes every year to two years...cost
= Approximately $110 a year. I wouldn't even gander a guess at how many people are
paying close to a thousand dollars for a mobile phone and paying $100 on upwards per
month for service. I about fell out of my chair one day listening to a news show on tv
that displayed a family mobile phone bill.....almost $1,000 per month. WOW! People
have surely lost their priorities. All I could think of is how many starving children that
could feed every month.
I really can't or shouldn't complain about my internet service. The speed is not super
fast but it is good. I pay approximately $80 per month for internet service that includes
landline phone service.
Bottomline, what I am saying is, there are a lot of things we can control without the
government. We can choose to not have cable service or not have satellite service or
only choose one streaming service or not pay thousands of dollars a year for a mobile
phone and data charges and etc.
As human beings in the midst of the totem pole, we are a majority. Not the government.
Not the conglomerates. Not the satellite companies. Not the cable companies. Without
you and I, where will those companies be? If we all canceled our bills tomorrow, where
would they be?
