I'm struggling AGAIN with Verizon. Starting yesterday, the addition of the "extra code" for image pointing has led to S-L-O-W download, to almost NO download as it times-out. I'm resorting to accessing pages with https:/...which is now FASTER than http://. But of course only works on sites that have their own security certificate.

Is this spelling the END of WIRELESS INTERNET??

I have had the same problem from time to time. Consider that all Verizon wireless customers are getting their images delivered from just a few servers. If those servers get overloaded, or the network they are on gets overloaded, we all get punished.

I would like to see all servers use security certificates. But, of course, security certificates they are not free.

Not the end of wireless, but the beginning of the end of an open system. The corporations will be hijacking more and more of our ability to use the internet without their manipulations.

I pay them to transfer data from some server to my computer and they believe that they own the data while in transit. They also believe they can alter that data as they see fit. That is a mind numbing concept! I would consider that censorship, a copyright violation, and abuse of power.

What is next? Changing text like, "Verizon Sucks Ass!" to "I love Verizon!"

Please don't resurrect ancient threads. Also this isn't a question about Linux Networking, so I am closing this thread.
