For those of you that work in IT or have a tech job, are you worried about what will happen with net neutrality? My current major is cybersecurity and I am getting anxious about whether or not I should change majors because of this shit. So for those working in IT or a related field, are you worried?
>>
>>739287171
no
you dumb motherfucker
try thinking for youself

Not worried. IT wil continue for businesses and consumer. There will be work.

>>739287171
If you really think the government has your best interest at heart, you should def switch majors, perhaps to women's studies.
>>
>>739287171
I work as an internet specialist and I am extremly worried.
The government doesnt seem to understand that some of us cant afford to see every movie on in the cinema or buy every game that comes out. This will ruin the lower and middle class and the upper class wont even notice.

Of course there was net neutrality before 2015. It was enforced by the marketplace. The problem is not net neutrality amerifucks. So don`t support a 500+ page long document of legislation you arent going to read.

The problem is equal possibility to take positions in the ISP market. Have you heard of the small town where the locals wanted to get fiber and the ISP didnt provide? They tried to make their own ISP. Guess what this ISP bought their local politicians and made their digging illegal.

Your crony-capitalism is the disease. free markets are the solution.

The ISP was Comcast. Whom you also gave a shit ton of tax money to for upgrades of the internet because of their monopolistic position.

Sure are a lot of ISP shills in this thread. Or fucktards. Lemme break it down for ya bitches.

1. The government already created a duopoly when the internet first started becoming a thing. This change won't give the government any less control than they've already had, it will just allow ISPs to dick you over more.
2. It won't pit companies against each other, it will just cement the ones who already have big pockets. By creating a 'fast lane' (which anyone with any networking experience will tell you already exists and everyone is using it) and charging for it, startup sites will have less of a chance to compete with larger sites. For example, someone creates a better youtube or facebook. Like, far better. Everything you've ever wanted from both sites is included in the new ones. But the site owners can't afford not to have their service throttled (that's how 'fast lanes' are made, by slowing everyone else down) so those sites are slower to load up than Facebook and YouTube. So it's a death blow for small online business.
3. Before 2015 Comcast and Verizon were already trying this shit out on Netflix. That's what led to Net Neutrality in the first place. Pic very fucking related.
4. The government already controls the Internet's infrastructure and contracts it out to ISPs. Changing from title 2 to title 1 won't change that. All it will do is allow your ISP to sell what info they gather on you (to the government btw) and allow your ISP to throttle connection speeds until somebody pays them not to. Then they unthrottle that somebody.
5. Comcast, Time Warner, Verizon, and CenturyLink do not compete with each other. They didn't before 2015, they haven't started now, and they won't start ever. They are a duopoly, meaning they don't try to harm each other's business

Wake the fuck up. Don't listen to the corporate shills saying it's gonna be okay. They're looking to bone you just as much as the government is. Hell, they'd like to BE the government.

I'm a Computer Science major and I'm double majoring in Cyber Security. Don't worry OP, if you watch the news everyday you will be rest assured that Cyber Security related jobs are going to be needed. In 2016 there was over 1 million jobs related to cyber security(according to forbes), and there arent enough bodies to fill them. Just look at the election news that won't go away. "Russian Hackers" wether you choose to beileve it or not, people will want to defend agaisnt that kind of shit. That's job security, my nigga. It's also becoming more evident that the DoD may open a new branch in the military for Cyber defense, or even if they don't there are jobs in the Navy, Air Force, and DoD for that shit that they need people.

Don't change majors but be sure to focus on application development regardless of what your end focus is in infosec.

I imagine the new act of passed will harm the average consume first leaving business level services untouched. After a few years ISPs will offer an expensive plan that will offer the previously untouched service and pitch a somewhat filtered service under the premise of better data management.

This is to get more money out of larger company's as they may be too big to adapt and pitch data management and security to small and mid ranges company's who may not have the budget to address these issues.

The military is the way to go, my man. They pay for fucking everything. And pitting down that you served on other resumes doesnt hurt either. People are more inclined to hire veterans than others. Mostly for the experience. Even if you dont want to do the 20 years you can do the 4 or 6 depending on the contract and get out and you could get another job pretty easily. I know one girl who didnt even go to college and did cyber security in the Air Force, and got a 5 year contract from a PMC offering $117k a year because of her experience.

With the VSG, my life would be a lot healthier than listening to some pseudoscience on /fit/. Trust me. Lot of people get that surgery and go into law enforcement or the military.

more empty insults, rhetoric
keep trying

You won't be able to do your Diamond Dallas Page yoga on YouTube because Comcast etc. are going to throttle your connection once you hit $90 worth of cybertubes that month

It's not an insult, it's a statement of fact. If you think that regulation that requires ISPs to treat all internet traffic equally the exact same way that phone providers have been required to do so for years is government control you are a simpleton. I say that not out of malice but as a statement of fact.

Just because I'm talking down to you (deservedly so) doesn't mean anything more than you are misinformed about the issue at stake here.

never said any of that
put more words in my mouth
assumptions are your only friend
reading for comprehension: it seems that you do understand how laughable your narrative is

>>739294865
>talking down to me
again with the narrative
you're not capable

No, it's a US problem. The rest of the world couldn't follow you even if everyone went completely insane because cable companies are usually separate from ISPs and there's a backlog of rules against it violating net neutrality.

Why are so many IT geeks so naive about technology?
>>
Has anybody tried murdering the families of a few ISP CEOs to send the message that the internet is not to be fucked with? I'm thinking violence is a solution here.

I think that any company that seriously tries to throttle their competition is going to end up looking bad and losing market share.

Online services like netflix might cost more due to ISPs charging them, but any significant change will cause boycotts.

People in rural areas with only one choice might face problems though.

As if anybody cares about the rural nobodies.

What do they even use internet for there? You can't buy heroin online.

We already only have one choice in my glorious Tristate metropolis

What's wrong with the people in this thread?

I love both my cell service provider and my isp . Thank you for providing such consistent and speedy service for $200 a month <3

>>739287171
That's just the first step fellas, soon total vigilance shall be upon us and it will be glorious.

Already do, I imagine it'd only get worse

Do you have no sense of historical context or any idea where most shady govts in 1st world economies gain incentive to take bribes, kickbacks & shill for corporations in the first place?
Incentive for govt corruption is rooted in money–or reelection power, in which case plenty of money's needed from those who have it. In conditions of the past 40 years–w/ economic superpower monopolies racing to choke that totally free market you types espouse–congressmen have found that incentive; see: Goldman Sachs, Duke Energy, Monsanto, any top 10 pharma company, AT&T, Verizon, & Comcast.
Example: Marsha Blackburn reps a house district in the SW corner of my state & she's exactly the type of politician you're describing. I've numerous friends living just east of Memphis. They ALL tell me how shitty internet & other utilities have gotten these past 4-5 years while other places get fiber. Her .gov frontpage says, "Marsha Blackburn believes that free markets are the best markets. She knows that the Federal Government cannot intervene in the market without fault," among other greatest hits. She's a "small govt, free market republican" through & through.
Guess who were among her top 12 donors during 2016's republican midterm sweep? Charter Comm, Verizon Wireless, Comcast & AT&T. I'm sure those companies have 0 to do w/ her shitty legislation though! Oh hey–she also happens to be the brand new chair of the House Subcommittee on Communications & Technology. She sponsored the infamous "Internet Freedom Act"–was one of the govt's leading SOPA supporters & publicly stated internet/phone companies should reserve the right to censor any info posted through their networks if they deem it "fake news." Believe me, there are MANY more like her. They all have one thing in common: free-market-killing companies up their asses.
The garbage happening w/ net neutrality is what kleptocracies & oligarchies are made of. If >>739292370 is naive, then you're naive^2 my sad friend.
