I found this on another message board. The only plus I find in this is maybe it can end Illegal Music Downloading.
Conspiracy theory or truth, you decide... but here's some insight to the info as it stands...
In some ways it does make sense... corporations around the world are trying to make more $$$ and can't figure a way how and look at the internet as a untouched land of opportunity... Can you imagine your internet access being limited to a price for the vast amounts of stuff that you can actually search and get to based on a subscription set by your ISP?
It's kinda like paying for basic cable, you obviously can't get HBO with basic cable... but you'll get basic cable if you pay for that HBO premium for your cable. Well do you want to visit those cool web sites you visit often? Not unless you pay for the premium will you be able to... you'll be stuck using what can be found at the price you pay for.
By 2012, broadband speeds will be a thing of the past, what you'll be paying for is what you can visit on the web from what this looks like... and from what Web 2.0 looks like, it's going to suck major donkey balls.
