20150222 The FCC Has Been Cracking Down On Mobil

Keith I MyersKeith I Myers2015-02-22 17:53:07-0500 – Updated: 2015-02-22 17:53:07-0500The FCC has been cracking down on mobile carriers for not being transparent with customers and not providing the speed they pay for. All major mobile phone providers have been hit with fines for throttling for example. Why don’t residential ISPs get the same treatment?

I pay for 18 MBPS and this is what I get on a normal day. AT&T claims there are no issues. I am tired of it. I wish I had more choices in my areaThe FCC has been cracking down on mobile carriers for not being transparent with customers and not providing the speed they pay for.

( I just to pay att 55 dollars for 18 download and .870 upload Temujin Kuechle – 2015-02-22 18:34:30-0500It would be nice if we were compensated for what we don’t get, but were promised. For example, if I pay for 5mbps but only get 3, then I should be compensated for the 2 Mbps I didn’t get.
I know that there are other technical reasons that are not always the fault of the ISP, such as when the website/service we are connected to is just slower than molasses, then it’s not our ISP’s fault as they are just passing along what they can.
So, I know this can all be explained fairly objectively.
This brings me to the issue of standards. Would title ii for ISPs, aka net neutrality, mandate all servers and their connections provide a certain standard level of performance? Has this already been discussed?Chris Vukin – 2015-02-22 19:37:24-0500#loons #spacex #satellitesJesus Suarez – 2015-02-22 19:53:24-0500+Chris Vukin I’m still waiting for that ! Keith I Myers – 2015-02-22 19:55:14-0500+Temujin Kuechle I am not sure if Title II would change this but it clearly should. I will need to look into that a bit more.

+Ryan Fitzpatrick​ I hate how ISPs hide behind the “up to” clauseChris Vukin – 2015-02-22 20:10:41-0500Me too +Jesus Suarez!Adam Outler – 2015-02-22 20:41:57-0500You all need to be familiar with your ISPs minimum guaranteed speeds. If you ask, they have to provide the speed. If you pay for service, you need to know what you’re paying for. When I get service I’m calling the cable company for a refund every time the speed drops.
