Well. It seems that I have two contradictory replies, and Mark I know nothing about you while I know that Biker knows his shit, so I think I'm gonna trust in what Biker just posted. I guess I don't know what to do now except lay on my back and spread my legs. Is this legislation something thought up by men? Probably so since Congress is mostly men, isn't it? I can tell you this, they won't have much fun with me because I already kicked my cable TV to the curb. I don't want my provider's crappy programming. There isn't any more cable TV they can kick me on so I guess it's throttle my Internet connection, and nothing I can do about it. I don't have any other feasible high speed options unless DirecTV (Uverse?) has one and I have no need for a dish on my roof for TV signals I won't watch. Your VPN isn't much of an alternative anyway even if you could use it because a typical speed might be 10 Mbps which is a pretty wimpy downlink and maybe you could handle one stream but multi-person households are out of it. Most likely result is your movie will be all forked up with pauses and watching the circle go round and round. Myself, I need VPN because I work with corporate apps that require geo-location to deliver different content depending on customer's or employee's geographic location. If my app is supposed to work differently in EU than it does in US then I have to go to EU to test my app. I don't see how they will know the difference between a streamer and a corporate app user, although I'm sure my apps don't use anything near the bandwidth streamers use so maybe it will be okay. And of course the bread and butter of the VPN industry is e.g. providing Chinese or some other oppressed peoples with access to markets like US, perhaps so that can get our government's propaganda instead of their government's propaganda. I'm including our fake news with our government propaganda. Actually I'm in a good position to not bear the brunt because I mostly trade Blurays with friends or watch together, and ain't nothin' my ISP can do about me dropping into the local Redbox and renting a Bluray. And anyway I mostly stream music or read ebooks, and the streaming music requires very little bandwidth compared to TV. This is just yet another example of our government colluding with the people who pay them and screw the welfare of the American public. That's our elected officials who are supposed to do what's right for American citizens, but one way or another they take money under the table or in an offshore number account and they screw us because they were bought by the industries they serve. Hey, I don't mind getting screwed, but I kind'a like getting a little foreplay and kissing before I get screwed.
