it probably already affects your country, because i'm sure your government blocks various things on the internet, chat services, social media, etc

it's a concern only in the U.S or it is global and how do I know if it's affecting my country ???

the current protest is for the US. however if it passes there's a chance other countries will think it's a good thing/they can do it. and then everything goes to shit


Judge the product by it's own merits, not by the Company that created it.

This is misleading. Net Neutrality is a concept. The FCC recently enshrined that concept into law, but the new FCC members (Along with lobbyists that stand to financially gain from unfair treatment) are trying to push to remove the Net Neutrality protections.

 

Many countries already have defacto net neutrality, as protected inherently by other - non related - laws.

 

However, a great large number of countries (NK, China, most - if not, all - of the middle east) are anti-net neutrality, and have laws directly contravening the concept.

What about the countries that are asociated with the US?

 

AFAIK the US lends the internet service to other countries, it doesn't matter if the ISP of the other countries call the service their own, it's always connected to a satellite which is US property.

Net Neutrality being a concept is understandable and I agree with what dalekphalm is saying, but I was specifically talking about the protest and mayhem that has been going around for a while.

 

The satellites being the property of US doesn't impact of the throttling I suppose.

I don't know what you're talking about, but a negligible amount of the global internet traffic flows through satellites at all. The accepted figure is ~95% of traffic goes through underwater sea cables.

 

So while a large amount of traffic will still flow through US Servers, much of global traffic doesn't even touch it.

 

It's certainly a bad thing that the US is attempting to abandon Net Neutrality, but satellites have pretty much nothing to do with it :)
