That sucks. But it's hard to imagine how they can make my internet service any worse.

Speed is one thing.

Filtering is something else again.

The policy that was voted down is one that has not yet gone into effect. Of course, now that they know it is all legal and will continue for some years, it's likely that more of the snooping will occur.

We are going to have to depend on tech resources; obviously our gummint won't provide us with any privacy at all. If everyone used a VPN and an encrypted DNS, we could eliminate much of the bullshit monitoring by ISPs. Golden Frog provides the most secure options right now, I think. And it's only a few bucks a month. Of course, there is no free lunch. The VPN and DNS encryption can slow things down a bit. Not a problem for the elite (cough, NoCo), but for already-miserably-slow connections (cough, me), it may be a hassle.
