Yes, but Danny you are talking about a tiered consumer-level package, right? Package A = this fast for this dollar amount. Package B = faster, for this dollar amount, and so on.

What I am talking about is even if you have the fastest package your ISP offers, your ISP is still throttling Netflix or YouTube. Maybe they signed a deal with Amazon, and Amazon is paying them more money than Netflix --- so Amazon now has faster speed than Netflix to your home.

In technical terms:
Your home pipe is 6.0Mbps. You are paying for this.

You visit Netflix, and you can never get more than 2.0Mbps. Your ISP is throttling it, there is nothing you can do.

You visit Amazon and you get 6.0Mbps. This is because your ISP is friends with Amazon.

That is the danger. Yes, we all get what we pay for. But in this case, you/I/we paid for the most expensive package our ISP offered, yet we are getting slower service through Netflix because our ISP doesn't like them as much as they like Amazon.

Sure, you can switch ISP's. But what if you can't? There are many, many areas where only one ISP is available. You'd be boycotting the entire internet just to boycott the throttling by your ISP.


I know what you are saying Mike and I agree with you. I was just going a bit off tangent with the 'tier' subject. I was speaking of it because my ISP was talking of charging by the bandwidth used and that would have raised my bill to receive the same amount of service I currently enjoy. Fortunately the consumers spoke up and they dropped the idea.
