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

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 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.

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!

Bill has far exceeded my expectations. I am happy to have another Super Technician to rely on for MAS200.

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…

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…

Nims and Associates are the best support company I have ever worked with. They get back to my every problem or question in record time. They have been able to help or fix every problem I have come up with. Bill and or Bob are very knowledgeable with all my MASS 200 problems. I would and have…

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…

Thank you for assigning Don to handle our myriad of computer tasks throughout the year. His expertise and friendly can do personality are a cherished resource within our firm. Whenever the screen goes blank or freezes up we always think "Have no fear Don soon will be here" which he is and things…

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

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.

....and, thank you for all YOU do. We are able to actually breathe easier knowing you're taking care of people. We have trusted you from the get-go because of your high intelligence, your ease at taking in and integrating huge amounts of new knowledge, and your grace and calmness in taking care of…

I cannot thank you enough for your help this evening. You have proven that your services are much more valuable than we ever expected - when you guys told me your hourly rate, I thought "no way can we afford that"! lol .... We are small and we do all we can to keep costs down, as I'm sure you…

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…

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…
