Internet & Networking Well, this is interesting. As some rumours already suggested, Google and Verizon have released a joint proposal for a legislative framework regarding net neutrality. This being Google and all, some of you may expect this to be all flower-farting unicorns darting across rainbows, but sadly, that's not the case. This proposal? Well, it's not good.

What.. and my broadband provider's loop shared between my house and every other home in the area isn't a finite amount of bandwidth? What really needs to happen; providers need to upgrade there networks and come anywhere close to catching up to the rest of the world (CA and US are way behind now) and providers need to accept that they are dumb pipes. Give me my friggin bits at the rate promised regardless of what bits I may draw in. 50 bits of data is 50 bits regardless of if it's torrent/ssh/http/voip or services they get direct income from.
