Web host gives FCC a 28.8Kbps slow lane in net neutrality protest
NeoCities finds FCC’s internal IP block, throttles connections to dial-up speed.
Lots of people are angry about FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s Internet “fast lane” proposal that would let Internet service providers charge Web services for priority access to consumers. But one Web hosting service called NeoCities isn’t just writing letters to the FCC. Instead, the company found the FCC’s internal IP address range and throttled all connections to 28.8Kbps speeds.
