Oh this may very well fuck you guys too because you only have two hardwire connections to the world wide web. One that I believe goes through Greenland and one that goes through the US.

Apparently the late great Patty Duke supported the repeal.

This is what Comcast promised before Net Neutrality rules were pulled.
Quote
COMCAST IS COMMITTED TO A FREE AND OPEN INTERNET.

 

Here is what we mean when we say that:
 
Comcast supports Net Neutrality. We are the only Internet Service Provider in America legally bound by full Net Neutrality Rules. We support the FCC's efforts to craft strong, enforceable Open Internet rules.

Comcast won't block access to lawful content.

Comcast won't throttle back the speed at which content comes to you.

Comcast doesn't prioritize Internet traffic or create paid fast lanes.

Comcast's Internet Essentials will make the Internet more accessible to low income families.

Comcast will inspire innovation, promote learning, create access to jobs.

 

An Open Internet with access for all. That’s what we’re for.

This is what they changed it to after it was overturned

We do not block, slow down or discriminate against lawful content.

We believe in full transparency in our customer policies.

We are for sustainable and legally enforceable net neutrality protections for our customers.

It's not over--until the Republicans overwhelmingly vote against it and PO even more people.
