Well, this is embarrassing. Something went wrong when posting your comment. Care to try again?

    Sorry the delivery truck analogy is not really accurate - it is just not that simple - I pay Netflix too and if their data streams are sooo big that they need to do something - like pay for better access - to make my service work better than great! I would rather have them use my subscription fees to help contribute to infrastructure to facilitate delivery then have their big data tying up bandwidth for the rest of the internet - including content providers big and small.

    Sooo, now what?

    I feel like a lot of net neutrality advocates are failing to offer an effective call to action.

    Great. Now I know my ISP is sticking its greedy hands in Washington lobbying to regulate my access to data on the internet and working with other big ISPs to monopolize the telecom market. I wrote a letter to Tom Wheeler expressing my support for equal access to data, anti-trust laws and fostering an open market for possible competitors. Now what?

    I mean, I just feel like we need to offer more feasible solutions to consumers so that they can take more effective action instead of just offering our criticisms, otherwise what good is that criticism? I need internet now or I want to switch ISPs now to make a bigger statement. Can I? Should I? Is their a lesser evil, I could align myself with while we wait for the slow wheels of legislation to turn. If everyone switched ISP providers together wouldn't that make a bigger statement than leaving a suggestion in the comment box?

    This is the best tool I have seen to educate people on the loss of net neutrality. Thank you!!!
