You PAID for your share. Google and NetFlix should PAY for their share, which they didnt because of prior abuse and NN.
Thus you, the consumer, pay the entire cost of internet connectivity. If Google and NetFlix paid their share, then internet wouldnt be as expensive for you the consumer (and tax payer).
Why are you protecting Google and NetFlix? Because they have made threats to pass the costs onto the consumers? Isnt that extortion? From massively profitable companies playing victims...
That Face When: Google and NetFlix extort the general public by telling them that they will charge them more if ISPs charge them for their 'fair share' of usage, and the general public responds by saying "That sounds fair. We as consumers and tax payers should pay the entire cost of internet connectivity ourselves, so that we dont have to pay more".
It shouldn't matter. Who do you think Netflix is going to pass that cost too for more bandwidth? DUH.
This is just a means to direct & control service markets to ones ISP's prefer. And its bullshit. If it means my rates go up, then I'm okay with that. This is just a shit way for Comcast and ISP's to hide how they are padding their bottom line.
But again, I paid for that bandwidth. Don't come to me with that weaksauce that the ISPs are trying to save me money by passing the cost off to a service I use.
