Subject: Control of the Internet

No government should have control of the internet, i.e. sites that are blocked because the government does not want its people to view it. However, governments should support the growth of the internet as it will be the facilitator of future technologies. Further, laws should be made that will continue the single tiered system that there is today. Telecom's say that it is expensive to expand and develop these newer faster lines, which is completely untrue. They are expanding at a time when the technology they want is expensive. We are offered faster and faster download speeds that the average person can not fully utilize, and the people that do utilize the speed are limited by the upload speeds of the servers they are downloading from. So if we the common user are the ones that they are expanding the internet for i say provide websites with faster upload speeds. Further, if a law is passed that will allow the setup of a two or more tiered system there will be a backlash. My generation and the generations to come will be more technologically minded and savvy than most and will be able to find loopholes. Right now you can have your isp, internet service provider, in a country hundreds of miles (accessed via satellite) from where you access the internet on a daily basis. That is all i really have to say but i wil some it up in one line sentence.

THE INTERNET NEEDS TO STAY AS IT IS, WITH FUNDING FOR EXPANSION PROVIDED BY THE GOVERNMENT.
