Save the Internet

Come on people, this is serious!



Let me show you how the internet works. Right now it is set up like this:
  • You pay for your own bandwidth (up and down) to an ISP
  • Google pays for it's own bandwidth
  • NSP's like AT&T and Verizon route the traffic regardless of where it is coming from

This setup works. But if AT&T, Verizon and palls have their way it will be set up this way:
  • You pay for your bandwidth
  • Google pays for its' bandwidth
  • Google pays AT&T for it's traffic to have higher priority than yours
  • Google pays Verizon for it's traffic to have higher priority than yours
  • Google pays [insert NSP name here] for it's traffic to have higher priority than yours
  • Google pays etc..
  • If google does not pay the required price, it page will transferred so slowly most surfers will think the site is down
We need network neutrality. Tiered internet is bullshit!
