Black People : The end of net neutrality: What it all means


Jul 2, 2003
NetFlix just launched NetFlix on Demand. This will affect them and they are sueing.
This too is something Trump wants so he can limit and attack content and the media.

Possibly it will effect Twitter ( limiting content and throttling the content ) and then he will be messing his own pipeline up.

Google if they launch their Free Internet Access ( LOON ) for everyone it will suppress all this noise.
Project Loon is a research and development project being developed by X (formerly Google X) with the mission of providing Internet access to rural and remote areas. The project uses high-altitude balloons placed in the stratosphere at an altitude of about 18 km (11 mi) to create an aerial wireless network with up to 4G-LTE speeds. It was named Project Loon, since even Google itself found the idea of providing Internet access to the remaining 5 billion population unprecedented and "loony"


The fight for the future of the internet just came to a head.

The Republican-led Federal Communications Commission voted Thursday to repeal Obama-era net neutrality protections. The repeal passed along a party-line vote.

Ajit Pai, the FCC chairman appointed by President Trump, has framed the repeal as getting the government to "stop micromanaging the internet."

The move is supported by the telecom industry, which claims existing regulations threaten to hamper broadband investments and innovation.

Technology companies and consumer advocacy groups have loudly protested the repeal effort for months, both online and offline, arguing it could spell the end of the internet as we know it.

Here's what it all means and what's really at stake.


The net neutrality rules were approved by the FCC in 2015 amid an outpouring of online support. The intention was to keep the internet open and fair.

Under the rules, internet service providers are required to treat all online content the same. They can't deliberately speed up or slow down traffic from specific websites or apps, nor can they put their own content at an advantage over rivals.

To take a classic example, this means Comcast can't just choose to slow down a service like Netflix (NFLX) to make its own streaming video service more competitive, nor can it try to squeeze Netflix to pay more money to be part of a so-called internet fast lane.

As Michael Cheah, general counsel at video site Vimeo, previously told CNNMoney: the point of the rules is "allowing consumers to pick the winners and losers and not [having] the cable companies make those decisions for them."

Yes... Brother jamesfrmphilly
The video view will freeze, and cause much frustration. :confused:
VHS backup for those needing it can still readily be obtained.

Good point. I was very disheartened and disappointed to hear this. I knew it was coming. The take down of Net Neutrality has little to no support among the general public at large. It was the big ISP providers who provided the most glaring and irrefutable evidence of how corporate lobbyists can push legislation through that is disapproved by the general public. There was no mass support or approval for the take down by Americans at large...NONE! Just another notch in Trumps belt for dismantling and reversing everything President Obama did.

Project Loon was an apt name for those Google-X balloons if they'd stay aloft instead of consistently crashing back to Earth. To date 16 of them crashed from May 29th 2014 to August 9th 2017. That's an unacceptable rate of failures for any new aviation related build out platform involving remote controlled new technology. We won't reveal the amount of the Loon Balloons that just decided to float away from their FAA mandated predetermined flight paths. Google must be paying someone in the FAA and NTSB a lot of cash to allow this to go on. Flight safety proponents have wholeheartedly agreed once the ATT Drone Program was in place the Loon Balloons should have been grounded until further notice pending a thorough investigation. Even Google had to know The Loon Balloons wouldn't survive in a permanent environment. Since only military and NASA research aviation platforms fly above 55,000' only they would be at risk of ripping one of these a new one, but is it worth the life of a pilot? Progress.

  • Planes fly below 10 miles up ... 7 miles (36960 ft. ) is a good number
  • GPS Constellation Satellites are 12,550 miles (66000 ft. )
  • LOON operates about 12 mile altitude ( 63360 ft )
  • Nasa Planes fly at 12.31 miles (65,000 ft.)
  • ATT ( COW ) can potentially fly at altitudes over 300 feet ( tethered ) They do have some (untethered ) units for other uses.
Explained: "Satellite" crashing attached to a balloon [Google's Project Loon]

I have been keeping up with the LOON program to some degree. I applied for a few jobs they opened.

There have been quite a few crashes, especially early 2013. In 2014 they started officially launching product prototypes. I tried to find the same account of crashes to no success. They have this (cube) small satellite group as well. Looked like one of those may be attached to this Balloon.

"But while there's a reasonable level of control for navigation, it can't exactly land on a dime, and malfunctions can cause the balloon to simply drift with the wind and land somewhere random."

Today's systems have better navigational capabilities, and unlike the first trials do stay up at the 12 mile altitude ( 63360 ft ). As they do descend it is reported they today have better control on their decent. They are meant to stay aloft quite a few months to a year or so.
These crashes are the exception in the Loon program, however, and not the rule: Google X's balloons have traveled three million kilometres in total since the first launch. The balloons are still being tested for endurance and resilience, so a few hiccups are to be expected. Google also coordinates with local air traffic control and sends a team to recover the balloon when there is a crash.
Today, they now have the capability to launch 20 balloons at a time and with much-improved equipment since the early days of the program. According to the post, the software that controls the balloons' path is getting much more accurate.
The Military and NASA research aviation platforms fly above fly at (65,000 ft.) Google and the Loon team works very closely with aviation and government officials concerned on all flight mishaps, project improvements, at this time I don't believe they have an issue of losing support.
I researched the ATT drone system you noted. I looks promising. It is a tethered system. It's restricted in movement, but does cover about 45 miles and can link to combine coverages. They have had some success. It is called the Flying COW ( Cell On Wings ). ATT unlike Google will be charging for their services.
