Net Neutrality Sucks

So the net neutrality argument rumbles on.

I don't care. I pay for Netflix, I pay for Spotify, I pay for Sky, but with 20Kbps with Sky Broadband, all are useless. I simply cannot watch video or lirten to music online. Thirty pounds every month down the drain.

Net neutrality is inefficient - it piles ultra broadband availability into hugely populated pockets. So it has to be stopped.

What we need is to make the likes of Google, Twitter, Netflix and Spotify care enough to invest in infrastructure to deliver their services EVERYWHERE. Or at least where it isn't available. Or at least to pay a contribution towards this.

Or we need to make our governments responsible for delivering broadband in the way they are responsible for water and electricity.
