Was it 4pm?
Did you read the article beyond "rar! Net neutrality!!!"? He specifically stated this:
I’ve since tested this almost every day for the last couple of weeks. During the day – the bandwidth is normal to AWS. However, after 4pm or so – things get slow.
He get's "normal" performance from his home network. Until 4PM rolls around, then it gets "slow". Gee. We can assume that Verizon has decided to engage in a nefarious plot in which they throttle network speed to AWS, but only after 4PM for some reason *or* we can make the vastly more reasonable assumption that after 4PM, a ton more people hop on their home internet and it makes it slow for him.
Which could it be! It's just so hard to do this whole "critical thinking" thing.
And even if it was, do you not think that when you pay for ADVERTISED speed, you should actually get what you pay for?
Dunno. What was the advertised speed? Nowhere in the article does he mention that he paid for a contract with his ISP which guaranteed him any specific speed. Do you see that? I don't. He does, however, say that he gets "normal" speed during the day. So...?
