Goodbye free anime!

http://news.yahoo.com/u-appeals-court-kills-net-neutrality-152413671.html

This means that you'll need to pay atleast 50$ per month to watch Kill la Kill.
>>
>>100274971

Explain further
>>
Didn't we just have this stupid thread?
>>
It means that Crunchyroll will need to pay for its customers to watch Kill la Kill.
>>
>That wonderful feel when not an amerifat
>>
>In its ruling against the FCC’s rules, the court said that such restrictions are not needed in part because consumers have a choice in which ISP they use.
I though most Americans don't have that option though.
>>
>Implying I need to pay to torrent my anime
>>
So, either one of the following is the result:

>Some ISPs continue to not give a fuck because they're not shit
>All ISPs are forced to be harsh to every customer

The latter is obviously an exaggeration, but still. The fuck are they trying to say?
>>
>>100275140
A lot of people who live in low population areas are stuck with shit like Comcast. The ruling is partially based on a belief that is in fact total bullshit.
>>
>America
>Free

Pick only one.
>>
We already had this thread, baka. Not even anime related, neither was the last one.
>>
>>100275271
>Not even anime related
You're literally retarded.
>>
>>100275031
ISPs can have total control over what they let you see and what they dont want you to see. That gives them freedom to shit over competition and to charge to access websites ala cable TV

>>100275100
Well, it wasn't me who started it this time.

>>100274971
>Kill lel kill

Good riddance.

'kidding though. This sucks.

>>100275140
That's the fucking joke. Those guys can't be more sell out.
>>
>>100275140
The option is usually one good modern internet provider and dial up and those are your only choices.

>>100275310
This is /g/ material.
>>
>>100275379
>I already pay for my internet
That's what you think
>>
>>100275423
>Not anime related
Except it effects your viewing of anime, faglord.
>>
>They can go to another broadband provider if they want to reach particular edge providers or if their connections to particular edge providers have been degraded.
Haha, oh wow. These guys couldn't be more out of touch if they tried. From a practical perspective, this probably wouldn't really impact anyone but streamfags. It may take a little longer to download shit, but I get what I pay for.
>>
>>100275446
How?
>>
>>100275379
Your internet provider can choose to throttle your connection to certain servers if they feel like it for any reason now and it's not illegal.

For example they could keep pages from loading that are related to a competitors services or throttle your connection to something that they think uses too much bandwith
>>
Well at least I have options if something happens...
>only providers are AT&T and Time Warner

Wait no I'm fucked.
>>
>>100275469
Read the thread, you lazy piece of shit.
>>
>>100275446
Yeah but its still more /g/ related.
>>
>>100275490
I did and I don't see how this shit affects nyaa and 4chan.

Google Fiber please save us.
>>
>>100275475
Dam I hope this gets challenged in court again.
>>
>>100275490
This is American shit only, I don't start up threads complaining that the riots outside my house are interfering with my internet lines.
>>
>Implying any ISP wants to give their customers any reason to even consider switching to another company.
>>
But I don't live in murrika?
>>
Ideally, an ISP would arise that would steal service away from the tyrannical ones.

But that won't happen because most ISPs have regional monopolies and only a few limited areas actually have any kind of choice in the matter.

The internet is being turned from a global network into a feudal morass. Why? Because there are more profit opportunities that way and content is more easily controlled.

>>100275515
>Wanting to sign up to the botnet
>>
Does any of this apply to Canada?

We're already getting fuck with our internet.
>>
>tfw you're not a amerifat
>>
>>100275560
This might ripple out into other countries as well since. Keep that in mind.
>>
>>100275592
Hello my name is Comcast and Fuck You

>Implying you have any other options[
>>
>>100275642
No.
>>
Good thing I live in a country where the Internet flows free.
>>
>>100275626
At least they won't throttle you connection for no god dam reason.
>>
>>100275560
>This is American shit only

I hope for your sake you don't use any services based in America. Probably not though. After all, it's not like 4chan is based in America or anything. So we really have no reason to worry.
>>
>>100275592
That's the point. In a lot of areas, customers only have one or two options.
>>
>>100275681
I have at least 4 options.

Comcast, TWC, AT&T, and Verizon

Might have more if I look deep enough. I think I'm good.
>>
>>100275704
Do you honestly think this affects servers?
>>
>>100275642
>Does any of this apply to Canada?
Not yet but, there is a chance they might try to copy.
