This is most likely going to be appealed back and fourth until it goes to Supreme Court, in fact the FCC has already said they plan to appeal I believe... Comcast customer are safe for the next 4 years too but that's not saying much..


"The court's decision applies to all Internet and broadband service providers, except for one: Comcast. As part of conditions it agreed to when it purchased NBCUniversal, Comcast said it would abide by the FCC's Open Internet rules for seven years, even if the rules were modified by the courts.

Please don't bet on the supreme court. They were still debating slavery when general Lee was marching his troops across the Potomac.

Oh and the UK guy: as long as Britain stays in the European Union you are safe.

Hi friend, Brazil wants to have a word with you.

We have a WAY worse Internet than you guys and pay a LOT more. Our health system sucks, our educational system sucks... We still have LOTS of people who doesn't even know how to spell their own names, our cars have a inferior quality and cost 4 times more...

And...

-The PS4 in here costs U$ 1,710.00
-Only the more expensive cars in here have automatic transmission;
-A Camaro costs U$ 95,000.00;
-Crime is at VERY high levels, and raising;
-Corruption is rampart in here, and our laws are completely flawed;
-Most cities in here still drop raw sewage directly on the sea;
-Electricity costs a LOT;
-Fuel costs A LOT;
-PCs are very expensive in here;
-Our minimum wage is U$ 315.00.

I could go on, really.
