Every since Net Neutrality was repealed my internet has been acting up.

    I think the OP has a point. I've had issues lately with websites losing slow and my emails habe been failing to connect too server. Both hotmail and windstream. My connection speed always reads the fastest available to me. So I don't believe it's a placebo effect. It's the ISPs already fucking with us.

    I think what's more concerning is you have internet explorer (or Edge?) on your taskbar.

    I'll accuse anyone I feel is in the wrong. I may very well be wrong too but until it's proven I'll believe I'm right. And anyone who doesn't think ISPs are shady is naive.

    Well I wasn't actually saying it's because of NN being repealed, just that everyone was telling him that he was crazy... when there IS something going on. :)

    ISPs are NOT shady, if you think that they are, you are an idiot. It's just business. That's how the world works, it's nothing shady, they will always try to do what will be most financially beneficial for their companies, that's all. Calling reason "shady" or thinking that ISPs are supposed to be good Samaritans is beyond ignorant!:P

    I know you weren't saying that, reason I spaced the sentences with a full line as I was addressing everyone else, should have put another one I guess...

    And which ISP do you work for?

    Any business practice that puts the customer last is shady in my book. Customer first remember? Is the moral and ethical thing to do. But I'm not a greedy bastard, so I don't think makind money at the cost of others happiness is the right thing to do.

    Shady would be if they did things without you knowing. When they are blatantly fucking you over, that's not shady, just good business!:P That's how the world works, ethics and morals don't matter whatsoever in the face of logic and reason, learn that hard fact!

    It's just odd to me cuz my internet started acting up on dec 14.
    Well said. Some people are just so brainwashed that they eat up the business ideology. They can't tell the difference between what's real and what's just an idea. A corporation by law only has 1 duty; to make money for it's shareholders. Even if it hurts people, destroys the environment etc...
    However there's an objective moral law they refuse to acknowledge and they're in for a rude awakening when they transition.

    But of course, under "no net neutrality" speed testing sites are prioritized by ISPs. /s
    (why wouldn't they actually, it would make them look good)

    Shady is hiking prices and restricting websites and material that's not contributing to their pockets without justifiable reasons other than their own greed. I guess you enjoy paying for only part of your original agreement. And then paying more for less. Sorry I'm not agreeable on that. It's like paying a contractor to build a house then them saying they can't put the roof on it and you need to pay them more to complete what they will actually do. That's SHADY!

    True, GBATemp is behaving like shit today, sluggish like the 90s.
    Sure it has been hit by the net neutraility repeal.



    Wait... I live in Germany...

    It better not be someone messing with the internet to try to send a message.
    "See this is what getting rid of Net Neutrality will look like, lets not get rid of it."

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    At the same time it looks like the FCC or ISP's or someone were using dead peoples names to support the repeal.
    So that side is guilty too of messing with this whole repeal.

    They haven't started throttling yet, so far they've only reclassified 10mbps down and 1mbps up as broadband. It's all about providing a shittier service for a higher cost.

    My internet has been working just fine as far as I can tell. I'm still pretty nervous about the possible effects of losing net neutrality. It's ironic that the FCC asked for public opinions while completely ignoring them. I really hope the senate pulls through for the country and restores net neutrality.

    I've noticed my internet bugging out lately depending on what content I'm accessing. Guess I need to find a good VPN that's free and doesn't hurt my speed. Went suggestions?

    Net neutrality is a distraction, you should be more worried about why you don't have competition.

    Net Neutrality is a must as long as we don't have competition, if we had a flourishing market it'd be different. As for the reason why we have no competition, it's really simple: two big ISPs have all the control and money. They literally sue any time a smaller ISP or municipal broadband starts to pop up. The current administration sees anti-competitive practices as a good thing.
