Net Neutrality: You should be concerned

Net Neutrality is the guiding principle of the internet. It preserves our right to browse freely and communicate openly over the internet.

Net Neutrality enables and protects free speech.

It forces ISPs to provide us with open networks and disallows any discrimination against an application or content which rides over that network. Just as your cellular network shouldn’t decide who you can or cannot call, ISPs shouldn’t interfere with what you can or cannot do on the internet.

If you haven't been following along, Net neutrality is the idea that all traffic on the Internet should be treated equally. That means your broadband provider, which controls your access to the Internet, can't block or slow down the services or applications you use over the Web. It also means your Internet service provider -- whether it's a cable company or telephone service -- can't create so-called fast lanes that force content companies like Netflix to pay an additional fee to deliver their content to customers faster.

These huge companies will profit by providing better speed to the sites that pay them more money. We have no right to know which sites paid for faster speed. All the money and power of the internet will be in the hands of a few powerful corporations.

Just think of the consequences for a second......start ups and small businesses will have to compete against the power of the big dogs that paid money for faster traffic. Service and options will slowly fade away due to an uneven competing environment.

The more sinister part could be the billionaires with an agenda will buy majority stakes in these ISPs and give faster speeds to sites aligned with their beliefs. This could happen on both sides of the political fence. And you will never know who paid or what group of sites are being favored. Talk about picking winners and losers.....GEEZZZZ

Can anyone tell me why even do this? How does this benefit the internet or us in any way?

Since the majority of ISP's are also content providers, this is how they get that revenue stream back that they had been holding hostage at greatly inflated prices for decades.

Wait, consumers no longer want to pay for channels they don't watch? OK, now we'll charge you a tier to be able to check your email, a tier to go to news sites, with an extra charge to go to the NYT site, and if you want to stream video, or game online, that's the highest tier.

Doesn't that sound great? Any new players will be completely squashed as now big ISP will own the whole game and either block them form their network, throttle the content, or charge so much for them to access their network that they can't succeed.

Monopolies established by government rock! They allow for tons of free market competition!

ISPs are essentially mini-monopolies. There is no competition for a vast, vast majority of people, and there certainly isn't any innovation. Repealing NN will simply ensure we all pay more money for the same service we have today, and there will be no checks on the ISPs at all - they'll have carte blanche. Customers will have no choice but to suck it up and pay, because they have nowhere else to go.

You assholes can pile on Dane all you want, but his contribution of "butt ****ing morons" is probably the best thing to come out of CP in 2017. The fact that he cleared the use of the label with a homosexual before unleashing it in earnest is just bonus, as well.

Oh it's great and I use it because I like it. And it describes your DC regulars perfectly.

Definitely a huge part of the lexicon moving forward.

Absolutely. Works fantastic in real life, as well (use with caution in public, though. Lol).

There are literally zero reasons to repeal, unless you are a corporate shill with a tied interest to an ISP.

Don't be silly, it's not about good policy for the American people anymore, it's just about the "red team" beating the "blue team" or vice versa.
