Net Neutral friendly country. (12)

Currently living in the US, politics aside, I'm seriously considering moving to a more net neutral country in the near future.

Japan? Switzerland? Australia?

I can't believe you didn't mention Sweden. You know, the filesharing country?

What do you mean by Net Neutral, anyway? Not capping or filtering P2P traffic?

In Australia, about every major ISP seems to do that, and they have slow connections with low monthly caps. Japan and Switzerland, probably not, but keep in mind Japan's connections to the outside world are not as impressive as the fast internet within the country.

How can you talk about net neutrality and say "politics aside", anyway? It is a political issue. I guess you mean "other politics aside", but still, net neutrality is connected to a lot of politics in the U.S... at its core, it's about Big Media versus new, more democratic forms of media. And Big Media is, of course, considered the fourth branch of government. If their power corrodes (as may or may not be on the way), politics in the U.S. will look very different (probably for the better).

OP here, yeah, i realize the direct relationship between net neutrality and government, i just didn't want to get into discussing about politics in this thread.
I also realize US is probably one of the best advocates of the internet at the moment, but at the current rate of it's progression (political), it's very possible that may change drastically within the next 2~7 years. at least how i see it.

i was just curious if anyone else lived in a net friendly country that doesnt have to worry too much about censorship or legitimacy of usage.

maybe i'm over worrying, but i'm just trying to be prepared. (learn a new language in the process)
thanks for your input, anon's.

Stay out of Australia unless you like slow conns.

Don't come to Sweden. You won't be able to learn the language quick enough, and our internets are the only good things about this country.

Pretty much everything about Australian internet is shit.

Well, there's the healthcare and retirement benefits...
and, IKEA, I guess.

From what board this is on, I'm tempted not to believe you. Any addict would say the internets are the only good things in life.

I... I just want to keep all of Swedens internets to myself.

If you're worried about the P2P port restrictions...that's easy enough to get around. Not by hacking, but with Google.

It's pretty easy. Say you'd like to download Justin Timberlake - Sexy Back (not really sure why you would, but...). You'd just search Google for "Justin Timblerlake Sexy Back Parent Directory". You find all sorts of crazy shit that way.

That's what I've heard, anyway.

Even easier way: use a different port.
