So, how's everyone liking the Net Unneutrality slowdown of Ravelry? I hate it.

This supposed internet service 'restrictions' of traffic ban has been lifted by the USA Government (FCC ruling repealed). Now any service provider can manipulate your internet speeds at any time of the day or night. Some have already reported that news stations are being slowed to the point of service at the speed of DSL, with some being slowed as low as dial-up. Buffering is occuring after approximately 1 minute of video play, so that interupts the viewing waiting for the playback to resume. Other places are reporting that an 'unlimited' plan is now being monitored and adjusted.

From what I understand, this only applies to the USA. So anyone in other countries perhaps would not know of this.

ETA:
Net neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers treat all data on the Internet equally, and not discriminate or charge differently by user, content, website, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or method of communication.

I just did a Google and found that several countries have this in place.

I have heard of this and recently had a lot of problems with the Weather Channel being very slow. It would say ‘buffering ‘ and then black out. We were traveling and needed to know the upcoming weather. Very frustrating.
