FCC rebuffs calls from senators, NY AG to delay net neutrality vote over fake comments

FCC chair refuses to delay net neutrality vote despite pending court case ars_ab.settitle(1226865);

"This is just evidence that supporters of heavy-handed internet regulations are becoming more desperate by the day as their effort to defeat Chairman [Ajit] Pai's plan to restore internet freedom has stalled", the FCC said in a statement provided to Ars Technica, according to The Hill.

So, what is net neutrality and why are people so worked up about it?

Our only chance of stopping it is to reach out to our representatives and senators and anyone else in power, and convince them to fight against this undemocratic and immoral plan to rob American citizens and businesses of the free and fair internet they love. Net neutrality, a term coined by Columbia law professor Tim Wu in 2003, is what allows everyone in America to access the same information at the same speeds through those providers. Johnson said. "They're going to have to share that same pipeline, no prioritization, with, for example, people streaming illegal content or pornography?"

Some Wisconsin legislators say ending net neutrality would compromise Internet service for rural residents, who already are hampered by slow broadband speed.

There's also an oft-repeated canard against net neutrality making the rounds. Sen. Until 2015 there were no clear consumer protections put in place to prevent ISPs from throttling information or internet speeds, and large companies took advantage of it.

He made a huge impact when he gutted President Trump during the BET Hip-Hop Awards in his freestyle a capella number "The Storm". The band's also featured on the song "Wicked Ways", which appears on the deluxe version of 2013's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 .


A separate study from the Pew Research Center indicated that among the record public comments about net neutrality filed with the FCC over a four-month period, only 6% were unique comments.

Net neutrality is a good deal for consumers and small-business owners. "On top of that, innovation is stifled too".

For example, Verizon can't slow down Google for its customers in order to make it more convenient for Verizon customers to use the Yahoo search engine, which it owns.

While an attempt to repeal net neutrality a few years ago failed due to "an overwhelming voice" of dissent, Shasserre said he thinks the vote could succeed this time.

Democrats aren't pushing back against this vote simply because they want to preserve the Obama-era measure. "Try and get them to pay attention".
