    What about google’s project fi? I know it’s limited but that might be an option.

    Edit: I meant limited on the phones they support.

    I think corporations should lose their freedom of speech (I.e. political cash donations) if they abuse that freedom.

    It’s not laughably pathetic if it works with the general public. Don’t dismiss it as such. Look what happened with the Net Neutrality repeal.

    So, what will happen?

    Nothing.

    The fact that Ajit Pai is still mucking around after basically destroying internet freedom is proof that Reddit can’t accomplish jack shit.

    Where are the hackers we are supposed to be so afraid of? What about the “2nd amendment” people?

    All we can muster is a collective “fuck Ajit Pai,” like some beaten pup left out in the rain.

    http://techknowledge.center/blog/2014/09/netflix-secretly-holds-subscribers-hostage-to-gain-favorable-fcc-internet-regulations/

    >The filing reveals that Netflix knowingly slowed down its video streaming service with the intention of blaming Internet service providers (ISPs). Specifically, Netflix used its relationships with Internet ‘backbone’ providers (e.g., Level 3, Cogent) to deliberately congest their peering links with ISPs, and at the same time, started publishing ‘ISP speed rankings’ to make it appear that ISPs were causing the congestion. It appears that Netflix cynically held its subscribers hostage to reduced service quality in order to pressure the FCC into adopting favorable Internet regulations that would permanently lower Netflix’s costs of doing business.

    and

    https://www.cnet.com/news/netflix-admits-throttling-video-speeds-on-at-t-verizon/

    >A week after the wireless carriers were accused of throttling video speeds on their networks, Netflix has stepped forward to take the blame for the degraded video quality. The popular streaming-video service told the Wall Street Journal on Thursday it has been slowing its video transmission on wireless carriers around the world, including Verizon and AT&T, for five years to “protect consumers from exceeding mobile data caps.”
