Petition: Protecting Freedom in germany VERY Urgent!
« on: September 18, 2015, 02:28:04 pm »

Its kind of an abstruse situation, hard to believe. Apparently in the heat of mess between all
 of those refugees our Cancellor Angela Merkel has managed to fall to the desires of large internet companies
 with the goal to split the Internet in Germany in two halves. High speed and low speed internet.

High speed is only granted for those who are able to pay extra for it to get the extra loading speed (Aka the
 big companies), and those who dont pay extra are stuck with the low speed Internet which means several
minutes or so loading time just to get a page loaded...

Similair deal with the normal people so far the rumors say. People pay for internet connection. Then they
need to pay regular taxes to get high speed, if they cannot do that, they need to life with the creeping
speed forced to endure a few minutes per page to load or so...

I dont know about you but this smells HIGHLY like Company desire population control and this is a nogo.
Currently people are trying to get as many signs as possible for a petition to be sent directly at the European
 Heads so that they get Merkel to abandon that idea.

If THAT law comes through it means that free Internet is a past in germany. I dont need to say that this
would be VERY bad for various reasons as this would allow bad a few companies to literally control opinions
and whatsnot that way...

The petition page is in german But google translator is highly decently at translating it to english.

You have my support. Net neutrality is basic morality.

I'm beginning to wonder how long net neutrality is going to last. Every major politician seems to be in favour of ending it at this point

And yet people keep electing them. Democracy has failed.

It's hard to say without knowing the exact price tags and bandwiths involved, but at a glance this proposition doesn't look entirely unreasonable.
