Now that the internet is treated as a commodity instead of a utility, larger ISPs can basically get paid by companies to have access to priority traffic preferences. It gives them an upper hand and provides internet “fast lanes” for certain websites that pay for this preferential treatment.
Now, unless the House bill passes, the internet will be controlled by a monopoly; he who pays the most wins.
Internet service is at a critical point. Currently, the open internet as we know it is collapsing. If the rules continue to shift through legislation, then how you access the internet, and mainly how much you pay to access your favorite sites, will continue to see dramatic changes. What is needed is the House bill to pass in the Senate, thus reversing the FCCs ruling of ending Net Neutrality.

We are strongly in favor of Net Neutrality. We strive for everyone having the same access to the world wide web. There is no preferential treatment for certain sites or for specific customers. We do not believe in providing ‘fast lanes’ for certain sites. You can rest assured that getting your email will be treated just as equal to streaming your favorite shows on Netflix.
In addition to the immense benefit of a truly high-speed internet connection, GiGstreem offers a symmetrical connection. This means that your download speed is equal to your upload speed. Most companies have a connection that is asymmetrical or lopsided. A strong connection depends on constant and fluid communication between the site and your location. A lopsided connection causes lag, resulting in constant buffering and slow load times. GiGstreem’s symmetrical connection speed allows you to say goodbye to lag time.
Finally, with GiGstreem, you never have to experience ‘throttled back’ speeds during peak hours. Many companies will slow speeds when there are many users online, to allow more traffic. They will also cut back on your speed when you near your data cap. As we mentioned earlier, GiGstreem has no data caps, and you will never experience ‘throttled’ speeds. We can do this because, while all the other companies are fighting the bandwidth on existing internet lines, we have our own dedicated lines, thus providing a more reliable, stable connection.
