see? this is why net neutrality is vital

Exactly what we expected. From “Verizon support rep admits anti-Netflix throttling” at Boing Boing:

Robbo sez, “Dave Raphael of Dave’s Blog has an interesting post about a conversation he recently had with Verizon support and discovered some uncomfortable – yet wholly unsurprising – truths about how Verizon is selectively limiting bandwidth to AWS services and adversely affecting the quality of Netflix. The open admission of this by Verizon support was unexpected – but the fact it is happening should be of no surprise to anyone but the ignorant and naive.”

Bingo.

Yup.

We said so. We were right.

Sometimes I feel like a guy with twigs in his beard telling people not to use the telephone because it’ll eat their souls. Except I keep being proved right.

Except it’s not the telephone that is eating anyone’s soul. It’s capitalism.
