Re: Aaron Em You appear to have missed my point entirely. I suggested electronic music because conducting this test with digitally produced music could potentially eliminate any inaccuracies introduced by recording anything with microphones. You could produce a sample containing any concievable sounds you wanted, and the lossless version would contain completely perfect reproduction, sample rate issues aside. Perhaps you should stop and think for a minute before replying with such violent gestures. Not all electronic music is Skrillex, nor are all people who listen to electronic music uncultured.
I'd like to add another vote to the "better quality round" suggestion, as this is interesting subject matter but the choice of song kinda ruins the experiment up front. Perhaps some precision-crafted electronic music would better reveal the subtle artifacts introduced by compression than some ancient and, by your own admission, awful cheesy pop?
Well, this topic certainly seems to be a controversial one! Personally I am surprised at the amount of pro-ISP, anti neutrality comments I'm seeing, especially for a tech blog. I'll just throw this graphic in as I think it paints a particularly disturbing possible future if ISPs continue to have their way. (I did not create this image and I don't know who did - I'm just hosting my own copy as I find it comes in handy quite often).
