Rally to preserve Net Neutrality

FCC Slams 'Desperate' Dems Seeking Delay on Vote to Overturn Obama-Era Rule on Net Neutrality

Internet companies, consumer-advocacy groups and Democratic officials have generally been in favor of net-neutrality rules.

The Federal Communication Commission's vote on the future of net neutrality is fast approaching, with the agency scheduled to decide on the proposed bill on December 14. The move could very well turn the internet we know and love upside down.

Net neutrality regulations are what keep ISPs such as AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon in check, preventing them from not only taking unfair measures to stay ahead of their rivals in the industry but also throttling bandwidth speeds, putting content behind paywalls, and even blocking websites.

If net neutrality does die, every U.S. internet user will be at the whim of ISPs. "I do not see the repeal of net neutrality as necessarily changing the face of cryptocurrency", she told Futurism.

Flynn told a business associate Russian sanctions would be 'ripped up'
Copson had promoted a succession of nuclear projects created to include Russian participation dating back to the 1990s. Copson went on to say that "Mike has been putting everything in place", according to the letter.

Net neutrality already distinguishes between broadband service (what you and I have in our homes) and nonbroadband service, to allow for medical services to operate at necessarily faster speeds. Applications like online games and voice-calling are extra sensitive to loading delays - so those against net neutrality - say that users would benefit if these companies could pay a premium to ensure their apps loaded faster.

Ajit Pai, the chairman of the FCC, has hit back against complaints of the repeal. "Any business practice that would affect the offering of a service has to be disclosed to the consumers, and entrepreneurs can understand exactly how these businesses are operated". As Gutterman explained, this traffic would be indistinguishable from any other encrypted, peer-to-peer traffic on the internet.

Essentially, without these rules, they call the shots on what users will see on the internet, or put differently, they can more or less censor certain information online. Internet traffic is any type of service that uses the internet. Many people only have one option to access the internet.

That explanation also doesn't cut it for businesses.

Google updates its Search app to help you discover new information faster
Each of the updates revolves around related searches , and offering them in new ways so that users keep on a-clicking. In the update Tuesday, Google said it has added more images and related searches .

And that makes sense.

"If these companies are truly committed to an open internet where Americans can freely access the content of their choice, like I am, it's curious that they focus on unnecessary and harmful regulation of other parts of the internet ecosystem with little history of engaging in this kind of behavior", Pai said.

Groups such as Fight For The Future, Demand Progress and Free Press are now creating online petitions for net neutrality and help individuals write to congress about their opinions towards net neutrality. Making it more hard to find unfiltered, unbiased information appears to be a move that would benefit large ISPs and the government a lot more that it would consumers.
