Pay monthly to access VGFacts! (US only)
#1
I did a quick search on the fourms and did not see a thread about Net Neutrality. I see people talking about it on Discord and Twitter, but why has this not been brought up on here? Mega64 did a good job really pointing out that using the internet will end up being... well.. expensive as fuck. Pay extra to access streaming sites like Youtube, Netflix, and other large video sights, an extra fee for social media applications and sights such as Twitter, Facebook, Messenger, even Discord. Then you'll want to play a game or download a game off your Xbox or Playstation right? Well you need to pay another fee to access the video game bundle.

You can keep trying to call Congress, but it doesn't look like it's going to help anymore. The country is getting worse and we are getting closer to being a communist country. Can't decide if I want to stay close and move to Canada, or get a full fresh start and move to Europe within the next 10 years.

I've spread the word about this on twitter and tumblr. Although, shouldn't this be in the general part of the forum so everyone can be aware about this?

Congress has proposed a bill that forbids the FCC from altering any Net Neutrality laws.

We got less than 48 hours before anything happens to the internet. To be fair, the internet is up in flames about this for a very good reason. Hell. I'm screwed as an artist if this gets passed.

Well, go out and buy those hard drives. Download every game you have now and make backups. Download your downloadable media now. Net neutrality is gone.
I will be getting a large drive and a month subscription to pornhub and getting all I can get.
I hope we don't have issues accessing VGFacts. I don't want to leave but if I need to pay my internet provider to access this site, I won't be coming back. I am sorry.

The fight is not over yet. The FCC has already been threatened with lawsuits over this. If enough states in North America oppose them, they will have no choice but to back down. If you live in North America, or know anyone that does, keep pushing them to contact congress and force them to take action against the FCC. The fight can continue, and it's still winnable.

So far we're getting a miracle, but the end of the tunnel ain't showing light yet! The revolution for the free of the internet is now!

Let's not forget that Congress has to reply to this in some regard with a vote and they can overturn the FCC.
