Twitter Slapped by FCC Chief Amid Wider Swipe at Silicon Valley

Twitter Slapped by FCC Chief Amid Wider Swipe at Silicon Valley

According to the National Cyclone Risk Mitigation Project, almost 5,700 kilometers of India's 7,500 kilometers of coastline are highly vulnerable to the impact of tropical cyclones and related meteorological hazards. Some of those protesters, including the leaders, have highly suspect histories, including that of violence.

Then call your members of Congress. The FCC commission is appointed and makes these decisions, but Congress can pressure the agency to do the right thing, and it can also put forward legislation to make net neutrality law instead of just policy. And indie developers will suffer once a performance degradation happens after ISPs decide to commercially exploit the extreme power they will have been given. These nutrition labels provide a "safe harbor" that protects against punishment by the FCC. Of course not. Although it is odd that the FCC is also intentionally hindering an investigation of this claim.

Chair Ajit Pai revealed his plan last week to end net neutrality, a move that would allow broadband service providers to control what content consumers can access on the internet as early as January, millions of voices have erupted in protest and anger.

Net neutrality is a simple principle - internet service providers (ISPs) must treat all online content the same and cannot discriminate against, or charge users differently, for access to content. The public comment period on these regulations changes, which extended from April 27 to Aug. 30, 2017, elicited 21.7 million comments submitted electronically and posted online for review.

The 2015 open internet rules were intended to prevent internet service providers or ISPs like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T from blocking access to lawful content, slowing down connections based on the source of the content, or allowing paid prioritization based on the source of the content. If the new draft order passes, the FCC might have to defend their position in court. It marked the second time in as many days that Pai had taken direct aim at Twitter and other tech giants, questioning the effects of their powerful, all-encompassing platforms.

When the FCC destroys net neutrality, will you be able to afford what amounts to protection money to the ISPs to stay at the same speed of access you have now?

Heavy users of energy can get a lower rate if they agree to be "interruptible" users. By the way, a line from the statement that previously read "An Open Internet with access for all".

Out of the total comments collected, the top seven most-repeated comments accounted for 38% of all submissions; the top 10 most-repeated comments accounted for 44%, and the top 30 most-repeated comments accounted for 57%.

On Wednesday, though, Pai continued his onslaught, pointing to other ills on Twitter and social media writ large.

Did Comcast forget the part about paid prioritization of internet traffic? But by then it will be too late. A 2016 review of economics research on internet regulation found that households who only use basic internet services, like email and Facebook, would probably be better off without the rule. But he still lamented that "everything nowadays is political" - including, to Pai, the pressure on stars like Taylor Swift to talk about those issues. He sees the internet operating extremely well under net neutrality.
