    Exclamation Stop Virgin from destroying the Internet

    Keep Virgin from destroying the internet...

    The new CEO of Virgin Media, Neil Berkett, has openly stated in an interview that they think net neutrality is “a load of bollocks” and claimed they're already doing deals to deliver some people’s content faster than others. They would then put websites and services that don't pay Virgin in the "slow lane", meaning those sites would load slowly and cause most users to give up using them, feeling forced to use whatever Virgin wants to push through their network.

    This is not the first time an internet provider infringes upon net neutrality, but it is the first time that an ISP so brutally states that they simply plan to limit internet access to a television-like system in which the access provider completely regulates the content you have access to.

    Virgin Media has over 3.5 million customers in the UK and the real danger is that when they start applying this system to their network, all major internet providers around the globe will soon follow the trend. Because this is exactly what major ISP's have been wanting to do for years.

    But we can stop it.

    If the masses of the internet react against this, we will set an example of what happens when one provider tries to take away our freedom. We will make it very clear that any ISP who tries to infringe upon net neutrality will see its popularity go down the drain because the users don't accept it. And we'll see to it that only the providers who care about safeguarding our internet freedom have our support.

    Speak out in any way you can and spread the word.

    KEEP VIRGIN FROM DESTROYING THE INTERNET

    The serpent's eyes, have seen many days
    And he tells us not to fear.

    thats gay, if i stand this right, internet will be slow to people that arent on the virgin network??
    (only a virgin would do that, o wait, they are)
    thats tarded, but if they end up slowing internet to non virgin users, ppl will build hacks around it, so it wont be a total lost. (hopefully)
