Net neutrality under Title II was far from 'neutral'

Net neutrality under Title II was far from 'neutral'

The Federal Communications Commission voted Thursday to end net neutrality rules adopted during the Obama administration that sought to ensure broadband providers don't block or slow web traffic.

Some believe the FCC vote could bring Republicans and Democrats together to craft a legislative solution on how to regulate the internet. "Prior to 2015, before these regulations were imposed, we had a free and open internet", Pai said in an interview. "It's not going to kill democracy". "If we don't have net neutrality protections that enforce tenets of fairness online, you give internet service providers the ability to choose winners and losers", Steve Huffman, chief executive of Reddit, said in an interview.

"I do not believe that there are any FCC or Congressional offices immune to the deluge of consumer outcry", Clyburn said in an impassioned defense of net neutrality moments before the vote. With Republicans now controlling the commission, he moved to end the policy.

While a variety of opinions about a whole host of issues abound on YouTube, one thing that the creator community seems to agree on is that net neutrality is a good thing. But Pai disagrees with that sentiment.

"We have a responsibility to push back and we're going to push back", said Wiener.

Pai's fellow GOP commissioners agreed. Consumers benefit, entrepreneurs benefit. This lawsuit was filed last February, while net neutrality rules were still in effect. He once said they were based on "hypothetical harms and hysterical prophecies of doom". While it's not clear if ordinary consumers will be impacted and how, smaller IT service provides and start-ups are likely to suffer most definitely, with their very survival on the line.

The main settlement Apple made is enabling clients to expel the stand and supplant it with a standard VESA mount themselves. If a big and powerful new computer was on your holiday wish list this year, you might just have something new to consider.

Jessica Rosenworcel, called Pai's proposal and the ensuing vote a "rash decision".

This decision will pull back the restrictions that internet providers have concerning how they treat their customers looking to get online.

She also criticized the process that led to the passage of the proposal. Santa Clara County is one of many jurisdictions and groups - including attorneys general from several states - which announced plans on Thursday to file lawsuits against the FCC's decision.

I don't have any problem at all with these companies (aside from their desire to use government to prevent them and their customers from covering the price of their service), but since when do "progressives" support "the little guy" subsidizing mega-corporations? Chair Ajit Pai, in casting the deciding vote, stated, "The sky is not falling, consumers will remain protected".

While the White House expectedly welcomed the voting down of net neutrality rules by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Thursday, the decision appeared headed for legal challenge, with several USA states and organisations announcing their plans to go to court within hours. That's why open-internet advocates and millions of internet users and activists will do everything to restore it in the near term and over the long haul.
