If you’re reading this article, you’re at the end of your tether.
You’re no longer able to connect your phone or computer to the Internet and you have no choice but to use the hotspot on your phone.
The reason for the disconnect is that your phone was too close to your router.
The same reason that you cannot connect to Netflix in the middle of a movie marathon.
This is called “lagging.”
Lagging is a major problem in the United States, as we know, thanks to the FCC’s 2015 “Internet Fastness” rules, which mandated ISPs to ensure their Internet speeds are within 2Mbps (or 20Mbps for DSL subscribers).
The rules were intended to address the “speed cap” problems that plagued some Internet providers in the past, but now ISPs like Comcast and AT&T are claiming that the rules are being abused by their subscribers to throttle speeds.
“Internet congestion” is now a common refrain, and while it’s true that there is some congestion in the country, it’s not a major one, according to the Pew Research Center.
ISPs are still able to deliver the most data to customers through their “hotspots,” which provide up to 3G/4G speeds.
This has led to a lot of criticism, especially from consumers, for their inability to keep pace with faster speeds.
Comcast and Verizon are among the largest ISPs in the US, but they don’t compete on the same level.
Comcast charges customers for unlimited data and speeds.
AT&s charges customers unlimited data but a fixed rate of $60 per month for high-speed broadband, as well as a $70 per month data plan with unlimited high-quality downloads.
Verizon has a similar data plan, but charges customers $80 per month per line.
These two companies are not nearly as well-known for their Internet service as Comcast, but AT&ams service has been criticized for being more expensive than Comcast.
The FCC is currently working on a new set of rules that would allow ISPs to throttle Internet speeds if their customers do not upgrade to higher speeds.
The plan has not yet been finalized, but it is expected to give ISPs more control over their networks and allow them to throttle the speed of their networks if they deem it necessary to do so.
This could result in ISPs throttling speeds if they decide that it’s worth it to customers.
In a recent post on TechCrunch, Ars Technica’s editor-in-chief Chris O’Donnell wrote that he thinks that ISPs would be able to force their customers to upgrade to “fast lanes,” meaning they would be unable to provide speeds that exceed those of competitors.
ISPs could use this to limit competition and make it more difficult for customers to choose the best Internet service.
Comcast, Verizon, and ATampos have argued that the FCC rules are “unnecessary and unreasonable.”
They argue that ISPs are already doing this to their own customers, and that the “fast lane” regulation will not help consumers.
However, critics are pointing out that Comcast and other ISPs are using the “network neutrality” rules to make their own decisions about what speeds to provide, and if they have the power to do that.
They are arguing that if ISPs were to be allowed to throttle speed, it would be illegal, and they should be held responsible for it.
However,, if the FCC were to allow ISPs such as Comcast to throttle their own networks, they would still be able enforce these rules.
This argument is particularly problematic because of how much bandwidth Internet providers use.
They need to be able use as much of the available bandwidth to offer their services as possible, but if the broadband providers could simply throttle speeds, it could put them in a very difficult position.
If the FCC allows ISPs to set their own throttling policies, ISPs would not be able even to offer speeds that are as fast as competitors.
They would still have to comply with the speed caps that other ISPs have set.
ISPs will not be allowed under the FCC “network neutrality” rules from 2018 onward, unless they are willing to upgrade their networks to more powerful equipment.
Under the new rules, they will not have to upgrade any of their network equipment unless they have a “special circumstances” approval from the FCC.
They will still be allowed a certain amount of bandwidth for certain applications, but that would be limited to a “minimum of 10 megabits per second.”
ISPs will still have the ability to set up unlimited high speed broadband plans, but the bandwidth requirements would be much higher.
The speed caps are not being changed because they are “just to speed up service,” according to Verizon and ATamos.
The new FCC rules do not specifically address what kinds of services would be exempt from throttling, but critics are arguing this would be a problem because ISPs have been using “special conditions” approval to throttle services in the recent past.
This “special condition” approval was
