with the overturn of Net Neutrality in the USA, your ISP can (and eventually will) artificially limit performance to popular and/or high-bandwidth sites in order to protect their own competitive offerings or extort the third-party site operators into paying extra to remove the bandwidth limits.

and charge customers for over the limit fee:

US broadband is falling further behind the rest of the world.

This is all very interesting. But ultimately meaningless, particularly in the USA.

ISP's know where the speed test servers are and optimize their networks to get the best score. The real world performance to websites with real content will vary greatly. Worse, with the overturn of Net Neutrality in the USA, your ISP can (and eventually will) artificially limit performance to popular and/or high-bandwidth sites in order to protect their own competitive offerings or extort the third-party site operators into paying extra to remove the bandwidth limits.

Yet further evidence of how the US government does not work for the best interests of the general public, but instead for the special interests of big corporations. The result of this ruling is that everything from streaming video to on-line gaming and cloud-based storage/backup will go up in price, with the ISP's benefiting financially.

We already know this...it's not news...

God (who obviously doesn't exist) forbid the american government would make it easy for it's citizens to access knowledge and information via the internet...how are they gonna keep them dumb then?
