Oh wait, it's not shocking at all:

"With Net Neutrality Repealed, Comcast Says It Stopped Throttling Heavy Internet Users

“Our network and consumer devices have evolved to a point that our old congestion-management system is no longer necessary. The system has been essentially inactive for more than a year,” Comcast said, CNET reported Wednesday.

Comcast will charge users who don’t have unlimited data plans a fee if they use more than 1 TB of data.

With the end of net neutrality — the vague idea internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all internet traffic the same — on Monday the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) now has jurisdiction over anticompetitive behavior. The new rules the FCC put in place also require ISPs disclose network-management practices and performance details.

Dozens of ISPs including Comcast and Verizon pledged not to throttle internet users as the internet nearly collectively rang alarms that ISPs would slow the internet down."

But of course we didn't need to hear any of that from Comcast - we all knew based on our own experience that no, Trump did not kill the internet by making it exactly the way it was for all but two years of its existence.

Weird huh?

You might ask - do I ever get tire of being right?  No Virginia, I don't.


...Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory.

I don't have as much faith in corporations not being greedy shitbags as you do.

Case in point. http://www.crowboy.com/evilgenius/forum/index.php?topic=28227.0
