Senator describes Internet as ‘series of tubes’, defends vote against Net Neutrality
Senator Ted Stevens from Alaska gave his colleagues a brief primer on how the Internet works while explaining why he voted against Net Neutrality.
It's a series of tubes.This is what we get when we hire nitwits to write our laws.
And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.
I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?A Whole Internet? No wonder it's slow!
Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially.
Now I think these people are arguing whether they should be able to dump all that stuff on the internet ought to consider if they should develop a system themselves.I don't understand this guy. Is he explaining why he voted against Net Neutrality or why he should have voted for it?
If anyone should have to develop a system themselves, it should be the corporations. This Internet is ours! We paid for it!
