    Hasn't it been discussed millions of times already? I think we've all lost hope...

    Honestly I don't care. These internet packages won't happen because they'll be ceased by the FTC
    These internet fast lanes won't happen either because of the FTC
    I really don't care, and I don't know why anyone else does.

    You should've at least had a link with some info or some kind of explanation instead of just writing "fuck you Pai" with no explanation whatsoever (sure, pretty much all of us know what's going on, but at least put some effort into your post). Here's a link for a bit on the subject:

    Also, hope is far from dead yet. Congress will be voting on net neutrality next week:

    I don't like heavy government regulation, but I don't like mega corps having power either. I'd rather get reamed by the US govt rather than Comcast eat my wallet for breakfast. I support Net Neutrality, but at the end of the day, nothing really bad has happened in the few months that NN has been dead, so whatevs.

    What I don't understand is if loosing Net Neutrality is not big deal then why was the holy bible of 3ds hacking http://3ds.hacks.guide/ supporting NN to the point they had an automated system that allowed you to call every representative in your state to show support for net neutrality. Also github and many other websites that gbatemp members visit regularly? hmmm...

    As I recall reading today that the Senate is voting to reinstate it later this week. If it passes, goes to the House and then Trump from there.

    I'll go through my history and post the source in a bit if I can find it.

    EDIT: Just noticed it's on the front page here as well. Thaaaaanks @Chary o3o

    It won't "kill" the internet, but I believe the fundamentals of net neutrality are important and the current rules should stay in place. The only thing driving the repeal is greed and corruption and isn't in the best interest of the people

    Oh god, you guys remember the times pre-2016 internet when we were all running 128bits per second and with our routers came a shotgun to blast our heads off because it was so bad?

    Yeah, me too.
