First someone posted that the internet will shutdown due to massive video streaming; Now we get a pay for every site you visit excluding your monthly bill on ISP plus a filtered content on the internet turning it into some TV but with no remote(Shoving all the crap and advertisements on your PC). I doubt this piece of crap will work; Reminds me of Martial Law in some way.
What's next, Spyware is legal?

I seriously doubt this will ever happen. First every online store in the world would be against this. Second it would break a lot of monopoly laws, at least in the US. Third if you look at that page where they show price options, why would you even need need a search engine option if you can only access a few commercial pages any ways, would make search engines pointless...

This type of rumor has been around on the internet since the mid 90's. Heck when I first started using CompuServe (now AOL) in the early 90's you paid 5-6 dollars a hour to be online. Why because there was no competition, soon as competition came the price went to 24.95 per month.

Same thing will happen even if this was true, your big ISP's might do this, but it will just make room for small local ISP's that offer full internet access to spring up. Seriously though it would be pointless for the big ISP's to do this, if the internet becomes a pointless corporate outlet for big names it kills over 95% of their customer base, which to me would be bad business. ISP's do not have to pay to access the content on the internet it is free to connect to it, so why would they block it, it sure seems pointless on their part to even think about.

At this point it is all just chicken little, the sky is falling worthless banter. Four years is a long time in internet terms, I am sure a lot of things will change making this whole topic pointless by then.

It's p much impossible for this to happen.
Consumers wouldn't allow it. If the consumers were against the idea enough they'd be too unsure about the outcome and they wouldn't actually follow through.
They're just trying to make everyone paranoid.
