No this isn't a joke. This is happening right now. Telcos Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and they few others have basically bought the internet from congress. If they get thier way the way the net has worked for years will be a memorey. They want to charge site an access fee to reach thier subscribers at the speed they currently do. Read more here. This is in congress right now.

Tell every one you know to act... The consumer has to move fast to halt this in congress. Telco's have droped billions in lobbying this.
