Dear ISP,


I am paying you $50+ a month for broadband Internet access. I’m not paying you for part of the Internet. I’m paying for all of it. If you want Network Neutrality to be optional, go right ahead, but you’ll lose customers.

A competitor will come in, advertise they’re offering “The Whole Internet” and “True Broadband” and steal away your customers in droves.

So, please, start slowing down sites that don’t pay you extra. Watching you backpedal and try to save your corporate neck when you have a 30% drop in subscribers will be very entertaining.

One thought on “An Open Letter to ISPs re: Net Neutrality

  1. I fully agree with Greg Bulmash’s point of view. I’m fully aware of the dangers, porno and other crap that exist on the Internet but, because I am aware of the places that I prefer “not to visit,” I’ll do so using my own integrity and common sense, and not rely on Big Brother to decide what’s good for me and what isn’t.
