    will not having net neutrality affect what websites and apps we have access to?

    Say Comcast or an ISP blocked a site and it made their costumers mad. Could the costumers make them reverse the block?

    If we're speaking strictly about the consumer experience then that could go a number of ways. I'm sure individual pieces of technology will continue to advance and be faster and smarter.

    If we're talking about the "Internet experience" it depends on what happens with the way the Internet is managed (or not managed). If the ISP's are allowed to do things the way they want it could end up being worse for the consumer, with certain services being locked in to a certain provider, or quality of service as a whole taking a hit because they can't pay "service speed fees" or whatever they would be called.

    Yes, by dressing themselves and others up in crazy outfits and protesting.

    Vote with your wallet. If they are doing something shameful, unethical, illegal, or just plain wrong - voice your displeasure. Write a letter to the company and/or your local paper. Make a phone call. Start a web community of like-minded people to put pressure on them to change their business practices. Once opposition reaches a critical mass, the company can no longer afford to ignore them.

    That depends. Can the public be motivated to speak up about it enough to affect change? Look what it took to get SOPA taken off the table. Major internet sites/portals got the message out for an entire day by either shutting down entirely or heavily altering their home page to convey the message.

    What will Comcast do after 2018 when they don't have to follow by net neutrality rules?

    Only they know.. They could do multiple things.

    Either way the FCC may have new rules for the ISPs to follow by then.

    Vote with your wallet.
    This is the main reason we need open internet rules. If customers could vote with their wallet, an companies would be hesitent to do things that make consumers angry. However, in too many areas, there is no choice in internet. Where I am at, for example, there are two ISPs. One offers up to 50 Mbps speeds, the other tops out at 1.5 Mbps. So, if I want reasonable internet speeds, I only have one option. And I live in a fairly large market. The second company offers faster service in select areas of the metro area I'm in, but does not blanket the entire area like the first ISP does. I hate my ISP and would leave them in a hearbeat if I had even one other option for 20 Mbps+ speeds. I'm in one of the markets Google Fiber is considering entering, so I'm really hoping that happens. I'll leave my current ISP day one.
