Net Neutrality

As Net Neutrality is very close to being repealed, it worries me about our builds. Some people just log in from time to time to keep their hard work on the server, but with NN gone, we will probably need to buy overpriced bundles to play Online. Which worries me because people who can't afford the bundles will lose all of their progress. I was wondering, when it gets repealed, the admins of the server would turn off the 3-month-auto-cleanup thing. Because a lot of people do not want to lose their progress, or their giant cities just because they can't afford the bundles from companies like Comcast, Spectrum, and Verizon, just to name a few.

(Just did a bunch of research) I say that whatever internet service stays with everything available when this happens, will dominate. people will move to that one and the one company that doesn't overprice the internet service will make billions while others die, or change. this could take quite some time, but competitive marketing will keep it from being too bad.

it also looks like many companies will ignore minecraft and go for the bigger things. (eg. of bigger things: twitter, discord, email sites, and other such things.) for them to block minecraft, (a bit smaller than gmail don't you think) they would at least price MC service cheaper than most.

It worry’s me very very much as well, not just because of mine craft possibly ending up needing to make people pay bundles but also because it may mean I and everyone else will lose touch with their internet friends which I personally don’t know what I will do without them, I really hope the appeal doesn’t pass!!

Yeah, it is but it may and most likely will effect us in the uk and other places a bit too 😞
