The days of the FREE internet are coming to an end

This is the story of Tas, he wakes up in the morning, brushes his teeth, goes to the bathroom, reads the newspaper, and sips some coffee. He heads for the computer, it's time to check for e-mails.......

25 new e-mails to read........
5 e-mails to reply to.......
3 facebook messenger notifications to read
1 to reply to....
5 gooooldddennn riinnnnnnnngs!

Tas decides to then check the weather on weather dot com, it's rainy what a boring day indeed, so Tas decides to binge watch I Love Lucy online ......

The mail man arrives with the mail, lo and behold, the internet bill has arrived - it's that time of the month again

Amount due for services rendered: $1800.00

This is a monthly routine for Tas, who now owns 26 credit cards to support his internet habits.

This is the future ladies and gentlemen - the future of the Internet, PAY PER USE, on top of the ISP monthly fees, you will pay for your usage of e-mails, you will pay for your surfing needs, you will pay to stream video on youtube, amazon, netflix, ON TOP of their existing subscription, basically anything that is FREE now will cost you money.

But fear not, there will be an all inclusive package, you either pay per use, or you pay a one time fee of $1500 for a block (up to a certain limit of course).

This is the future - people are complaining about intrusive ads, and let's face it, outside of porn, the conversion rate for online ads is abysmal at best, so there comes a time where advertisers will be far and far less - all this is going to be replaced by the subscription and pay as you go model, and the same will happen with SOFTWARE (it already has started at some point) some software today can only be purchased by subscription !

Brace yourselves for the future of Internet, not even Bernie Sanders can save you :P

Hello Tas, Hope you enjoyed your coffee.

I think Darkstar is talking about net neutrality, And how companies now can exploit it after it got repealed.

Have a good day with your wife, I can still sell you the blonde wig if you wish.
