My Net Neutrality Disclaimer and why!

As I see overall the internet will degrade if Net Neutrality is killed.
Why? Like I said in my disclaimer expect slow not knowing
if you will be able to even get your website you like without 
a timeout... The slow lane? Well how slow will it be?
How many times are you going to have to hit F5 for
the page to load?

"Due to the point of net neutrality if it does get killed I can not
guarantee that any of the links would work or not, as your
internet provider could be slowing down the website you like or
an AD from another slower lane website on your website you like 
could slow down the site you like overall because of the slow AD... 
So the links might look dead to you or me but in 
reality it is just the internet provider doing it!"

"I have to note this as this site is a links page and is 
dependent upon having links that work so I would know they work.
I can't post links if I don't know they really work!"

~~~~~America is about to kill the open internet and towns like this will pay the price
It’s Saturday morning at a cafĂ© near the museum in Winlock, Washington, and Michelle Conrow is eating brunch while surfing the internet on her laptop. What might seem a banal activity for many is a luxury for Michelle. The internet at her house just outside the town is primitive by today’s standards, with speeds similar to the dial-up days of the 1990s. It took three days to download Microsoft Office to her new computer.
Many of the 1,300 residents in this rural area, which was once the US’s second largest egg producer, report frustratingly slow connections. There’s no binging on the latest must-watch Netflix show or streaming music on Spotify to suit your mood. No quick downloading of a podcast for your journey to work as you grab your coat. No running several devices simultaneously as parents catch up with internet banking or shopping on Amazon while their children chat on social media and watch YouTube videos.
Some have no broadband at all because the only provider, CenturyLink, has maxed out its system and there is a waiting list to get a connection, while others live outside the service area. Conrow and others have been complaining about the service for years. And if the internet’s top regulator, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), gets its way, Conrow worries things may never get better.
