Eyup. And that was 8 months ago.
The internet has been raging against repeated efforts by the cable companies to get such bullshit passed and some of it has anyway. John Oliver was absolutely right with all this analogies. The bit that really gets me is how they describe the fast lane as being some hyper speed bullshit. The fast lane would be equal to what we have now which is shitty, unreliable, and slow. The rest of everybody would be artificially slowed down even more.
