Net Neutrality Is Dead. Here's What The Experts Are Saying

Net Neutrality Is Dead. Here's What The Experts Are Saying

"Net neutrality is essential to our 21st century democracy, and we need to be sure that people can access websites and information freely and fairly", Sen. Remote workers of all kinds, including freelancers and franchisees working in the gig economy, could similarly face higher costs to do their jobs from home.

It's not too late, however, and it's important to know what's going on. Inform yourself and be a part of the future process. Celebrities, as well as politicians and Netflix, spoke out across social media to denounce the decision.

A group of nearly 20 state attorneys general asked the FCC to delay the vote until the issue of fake comments is addressed.

"Today's vote is an unprecedented abdication of responsibility by the FCC to protect free expression online and to promote a free market for innovation", said Chris Lewis, VP for public knowledge. Do you intend to support the Senate version and what do you think it will take to overturn the FCC's decision?

"Today the FCC voted along party lines to repeal net neutrality".

Rescinding net neutrality means that the big telecoms will soon possess the power to make and enforce both of these decisions. Since he was a minority commissioner under the Obama administration, Pai has argued the FCC overstepped when it imposed the restrictions.

Imagine what would have happened if we did not have net neutrality in 2000, before Google's initial public offering (IPO), when Internet search was dominated by Yahoo. Consider for example the role that Fly - FCC chairman in the early 1940s - played in taming corporate power in broadcasting, ultimately giving Americans the ABC network through FCC regulations.

After the meeting again got underway, the commission voted to repeal the net neutrality rules by 3-2.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said the Obama-era rules threatened "the free and open internet that has done so much to advance modern society". AT&T proposed to create two lanes, a fast one for any content provider that would pay new fees to AT&T, and a slow one for everyone else.

Washington Post reporter Brian Fung also wrote on Twitter that security personnel inquired about his phone, asking him if he had taken a picture, and that other reporters noted their items had been moved around after they were let back in following the 20-minute recess. The companies argue that Title II gives the FCC too much control over their business, and that the regulations make it hard to expand their networks.

So far, at least two Attorneys General have announced intentions to file suit over the repeal.

A University of Maryland poll released this week found that more than 80 per cent of respondents opposed the proposal. The FCC clearly has put the ISPs profits above the benefits of consumers and of the overwhelming majority of businesses. But the FCC had the votes at the beginning and they had the votes at the end, and that is because we lost the last election.

That's why citizens should not have to rely on the goodwill, or even the common sense, of giant companies to guarantee an open, neutral internet.

Although these changes will not occur instantly "Internet providers will likely continue to explore subtler methods of advantaging themselves and their partners, like offering data to use certain services for free or speeding up delivery of their own content", cautions The Verge.

Your mobile carrier, for instance, might start offering you terrific deals for signing up to its own video service, just as your YouTube app starts suffering unexpected connection errors.
