I've just been reading about the ongoing talks between Google and Verizon on setting up a two-tier Internet. Basically, if you want your site to perform at top speeds, you have to pay the ISPs directly for that.
I know the FCC has been considering how to move forward on Net Neutrality, but it seems this decision could have a major impact on sites if you have to pay ISP's to be competitive.
So, as site owners, we pay Verizon, Comcast, AT&T, Cox...just so our sites load quickly and are seen. Who knows what the charge will be for that. I wonder if there'll be anything left over afterwards to live on. And those who don't pay get slow sites, I guess. I can already see it now: if you don't pay for top speed, Google penalizes your site because it loads slow.
Just wondering what everyone else thinks about this.
