Welcome to Trump's Internet!

>Comcast has been telling Xfinity Mobile customers about the changes in an email titled, "Update on cellular video resolution and personal hotspots." One Comcast customer forwarded the email to Ars, and there's also a Reddit thread discussing the email. All Xfinity Mobile customers are receiving this email, Comcast confirmed to Ars.

"To help you conserve data, we've established 480p as the standard resolution for streaming video through cellular data," Comcast told customers. For now, customers can contact Comcast for an "upgrade" to 720p video "on an interim basis at no charge."

>But after the interim period is over, getting HD-quality video will cost extra. "Later this year, 720p video over cellular data will be available as a fee-based option with your service," Comcast told customers. Comcast hasn't mentioned any plans to make 1080p or any resolution higher than 720p available over cellular, and there's no word from Comcast yet on what enabling 720p video will cost. Comcast previously imposed no speed limits on video streaming on the Xfinity Mobile service.

[...]

>"If you have the Unlimited data option, your speeds on any device connected to a personal hotspot will not exceed 600kbps," Comcast told customers. Xfinity Mobile users can get 4G hotspot speeds by switching to Comcast's "By the Gig" pricing.

>By the Gig customers pay $12 for each gigabyte of usage. The unlimited plan costs $45 a line each month, and it's unlimited in the sense that there are no overage fees for using too much data. But the unlimited plan only provides 20GB of full-speed data each month—after 20GB, the plan is limited to 1.5Mbps downstream and 750kbps upstream at all times. This limitation was already in place when Comcast started offering mobile service last year.

You failed to understand why we need HTTPS why should net neutrality be any different?

HTTPS is communism. Freedom ain't free.
