So, things revert to how they were before 2015.  Was it so bad then? Much ado about nothing.


Are you sure about that?

Your ISP isn't going to throttle your connections to certain sites like Comcast did with Netflix, and who knows what else the providers have in mind.

How about.

Greetings User,

We have noticed you get over 100 emails a day. This puts a strain on our servers, so to provide you with the best possible service, we will be charging you ten cents an email for each email over 50 that you receive.

This charge will be automatically be added to your monthly bill.

Thanks for being a customer.

Your ISP.

You don't believe in paying for services received? Why should I pay the same for sending maybe 10 emails a month, which you send 100 a day? And what business is it of government to take a hand in this? You want 100mbps, you pay more. You want to stream movies, pay more for the bandwidth. Supply and demand at work. What you mean is that you want others to pay for your fun.
