internet-open-The FCC voted by a margin of 3-2 to adopt net neutrality. The vote will require broadband internet to be reclassified as a public utility in the similar manner telecommunications is regulated. In essence, the principle of net neutrality is internet service providers (ISPs) such as Comcast, Charter, Verizon, Century Link, ATT, etc., cannot dictate the flow of internet traffic.

 

Here are the 3 major rules the FCC will enforce on ISPs:

• No Blocking:  broadband providers may not block access to legal content, applications, services or non-harmful devices.

• No Throttling: broadband providers may not impair or degrade lawful Internet traffic on the basis of content, applications., services, or non-harmful devices.

• No Paid Prioritization: broadband providers may not favor some lawful Internet traffic  over other lawful traffic in exchange for additional fees. In other words, no “fast lanes”. This rule also bans ISPs from prioritizing content and services of their affiliates.

30 Years of Rave Reviews

We are impressed with response times and the general aptitude of your support group. This stands in stark contrast to some of the experiences with other IT resources we’ve patronized in the past.

I’ve sent more than one shining Michael endorsement. The whole company kicks ass.

As someone who works remotely from a home office, connectivity and a reliable, functioning computer are absolutely critical to my ability to be able to perform. Recently my computer "crashed" and as you can imagine created great inconvenience. Your team of Joel, Tessa and Tim responded immediately.…

Since we switched hosts to Network Solutions, we've had nothing but continuous problems with email and sessions timing out preventing us from opening our online store. Joel went out of his way to solve our problem. This means the world to us. Joel listened and accommodated our needs first before…

Since our bank told us we need to become PCI compliant, we found lots of holes and “open doors” on our servers, hosting, website etc. Chris closed up them and Tim has helped with the all the other annoying daily problems we have had, and they both do it with a smile and a reassuring, calming tone…

Bill has far exceeded my expectations. I am happy to have another Super Technician to rely on for MAS200.
Thank you for explaning what you did in an understandable way. You're very patient working with such a small company and treating us as though we were a huge corporation.

Our Yardi conversion was challenging. Hiring Nims and in turn working with Marco was the smartest thing we did to assist in this transition. His contribution was priceless. My staff and Board both agree it would have been a nightmare without Nims (Marco).

I was going to say it was the smartest…

We’re getting rave reviews on the new e-newsletter. I just want to let you know how grateful we all are for your help on this project—your great direction, patience and support are invaluable.

We would NEVER have gone this far without you!

I worked with Nims when at another company ... you don't have to tell me what a fantastic company Nims is.

At a time when it may seem like good customer service is at all time low and we hear so many negatives about many companies and their employees, it’s a pleasure to be able to send along our positive comments regarding Nims & Associates … and more specifically about Chris. Chris has worked our…

Can I tell you how we feel about Chris? He is the greatest. He goes way beyond the norm. We can't ask for better service and support. Chris has taken the time to teach me additional things to not only help him but us here which cuts the time we need him here to fix something I can do. Not many…

I have been extremely happy with your service. Michael is truly devoted to his clients and has been great about working with our current vendor to get our issues resolved. The MXLogic transition was seamless. Our users barely noticed the change, which is always a plus. 

We are delighted with the service and we've received a number of comments by clients that they are very impressed with the way Tessa handles the problems and works with them. She REALLY picks up things quickly. We are continuously amazed and pleased that we only have to tell her something once and…

We are very satisfied with the professional demeanor of both Tessa and Michael and their willingness to go above and beyond the scope of their expectations to solve our computer-related issues. The immediate and personal attention we receive from Nims when our Firm has an IT issue is impressive, to…
