  •  I object to paying extra beyond that to access (0+ / 0-)

    a service on the internet, once I've paid for my "access."

    And that is what you propose.

    Or having to pay extra to make my netflix load in the next hour instead of sometime in the next month.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

    •  QoS differences are measured in Milliseconds (0+ / 0-)

      Unless you are actually running an application that requires high QoS, you are unlikely to have a difference that can be perceived by a human.

      Do you have any actual experience using large networks where QoS is used?

      The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.

      •  Do you know diddly about "traffic shaping?" (0+ / 0-)

        Don't even get into "perceived by a human" arguments.

        I've got vonage and can categorically state that latency is a b*tch.

        Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

        •  VOIP quality would be helped with QoS (0+ / 0-)

          QoS will help make VOIP and video conferencing much better.

          I don't see a for dKos to compete with slashdot in regards to "traffic shaping."
