I seem to be seeing both images fine?
OT: A thread containing bad ISP Customer Service experiences would be hilarious imo. Being only 20, and living alone for only around 2 years I haven't had much contact with them but when I lived back at my mums she had countless amounts of problems. I dread the day I have a problem Finna

Here's some good news:


Net Neutrality's Sunset Prompts Sling TV's Individual Channel Offerings

I'm a fan. I use Sling and would love to be able to drop half of the channels I don't use. Would save me money.

From a business perspective, it's suicide to enact those restrictions without already illegal collusion between competitors. People will flock to other competitors, and new ones may pop up to compete.

I'm a fan of letting the free market works. It does, as long as customers realize they have the choice to vote with their wallet.

This is laughably wrong. In so many markets there's literally only one option. Charter is the only option in my hometown. These big ISPs like Verizon, Comcast, Charter, and AT&T make agreements to not encroach on another's turf.

a friend of mine has seen a small fluctuation where comcast has dropped their HD programming from within their app...and is charging people to continue watching .. and it can only get worse as the months progress...they should know, if they start rolling out tolitarian restrictions, they will see a mass exodus of customers.. iam eying towards dishtv in near future

Sure, and that situation was the same when net neutrality was in effect.

All I see is people saying it's doomsday, but I've yet to see anything ACTUALLY happen from it.
