    I feel fine. Do you have a more specific question?

    Well from what I read the issue is a traffic issue. Would smaller streaming companies be able to compete with larger ones, would prices of Netflix and Hulu skyrocket? Would streaming be slowed down significantly?

    I don't have cable anymore, I have Netflix and Hulu. Hulu for all the shows and netflix for movies, my total bill is around 30 dollars a month and that includes my internet package. How would this effect people like me?

    Cutting the cable is fine if you don't care about sports. None of those options has the ESPN channels
