Creepy dating rule xkcd

December 19, at 1: The small deviations from that base fact are some large companies who have decided that if NN will fall, they need to get ready to be cooks instead of dinner. But your post actually suggests a better argument to me: ISPs have a relatively standardized, low cost way to bill their own customers. Similarly, if an ISP wants to play in some business itself, convincing them to let you pay to compete with them is going to be very difficult even if in the long run that is the optimal solution for all parties.

Almost by definition, when a new idea first comes along almost everyone thinks it is worthless. The latter could even lead to a better world than the one we have now, where the internet actually prioritizes traffic in accordance with its economic value.

In theory, ISPs could do this more easily by negotiating variable cost plans with their own customers, and letting customers shape their own traffic. But the reality is that customers hate variable pricing. Conrad Honcho December 19, at Pre-regulation of hypothetical problems leaves you open to the unintended consequences with no way of knowing if you actually prevented the hypothetical bad behavior. But let them do the evil first before we go about adding new regulations.

Gobbobobble December 19, at 1: As has been mentioned , Net Neutrality goes back to the 90s, the Title II reclassification in was just the latest method. The deals are made behind closed doors. It would scare investors to know how dependent the internet company was on the tiny oligopoly of last-mile providers. Companies pay patent trolls to go away all the time. But you almost never hear about it.

Aapje December 20, at 1: Similarly, removing Net Neutrality runs the risk of damaging mainly upstarts in a similar way. MoebiusStreet December 20, at As you mention, they go back as far as telegraph. Why would anyone think that a set of regulations that was engineered for a circuit-switched voice network would be a good approach to the regulation of a packet-switched high-bandwidth data network? There are huge fundamental differences in how those networks operate, and what their goals are.

I think everyone directly involved in the regulation agrees that this is a problem. While NN was in effect, the FCC had agreed to just overlook the aspects of the regulation that make no sense. Gobbobobble December 20, at Voice is a subset of data and packet-switching is essentially just an automated form of circuit-switching. As demonstrated by VoIP, the internet can be considered a bigger and better iteration on phone networks.

Do you not consider internet a telecommunications technology? NN can be distilled to a simple principle: Networks that carry data from A to B are not allowed to discriminate or interfere with the data being carried What am I missing that makes this not apply to both phone lines and internet connections?

MoebiusStreet December 20, at 2: The argument was that a particular implementation of NN was absolutely necessary. Voice is a subset of data and packet-switching is essentially just an automated form of circuit-switching You seem to be arguing that because something works well for a subset, we ought to be able to apply the same principle to the whole superset. They recognized that portions of the regulations were clearly silly, and promised not to enforce those portions.

Gobbobobble December 20, at 2: You seem to be arguing that because something works well for a subset, we ought to be able to apply the same principle to the whole superset. Which is also a fallacy. David Speyer December 21, at 9: Under Section , the FCC would not have the authority to reimpose these regulations.

If the FCC wanted to relax the regulations and remain able to rapidly reimpose them, it would keep the Title II authority and just relax the regulations.


Yes, it's totally rude of people to be cute and desirable and utterly unavailable to you, isn't it?
