    FCC "net neutrality" rules overturned

    Here is the complete text of the new FCC internet rules. It is a PDF from fcc.gov and so it is straight from the source.

    It'll be some time before I'll have a chance to read it over but I figured I'd post it for everyone.

    The U.S. Federal Communications Commission voted 2-1 on Thursday to advance a Republican plan to reverse the Obama administration's 2015 "net neutrality" order.

    FCC Chairman Ajit Pai wants the commission repeal the rules that reclassified internet service providers as if they were utilities. He thinks the open internet rules adopted under former President Barack Obama, a Democrat, were unnecessary and harm jobs and investment.

    Net Neutrality Supporters Should Actually Hate the Regulations They're Endorsing

    Simply stated, the OIO does not in fact secure the principles of "net neutrality" like so many of these websites implied to their users. In fact, the OIO may have the adverse effect of actively discouraging the principles of net neutrality through a loophole that would exempt motivated Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from OIO regulations. This cannot be emphasized enough: The OIO allows and encourages ISP filtering, a huge no-no in the world of net neutrality.

    Repealing net neutrality regulations means consumers could start paying more for their Internet services. Consumers could see ISPs start to “bundle” services — such as certain websites or applications — and charge more depending on what a person wants access to, experts said.

    “Right now, the FCC has designated [the Internet] as a telecommunications service — like a phone service which includes all of the rules that apply to prevent [a company] from blocking or throttling or favoring one company over another,” Feld told Fox News. “The real question, to some degree, is: is the Internet going to work like the old telephone where you get to decide who you called and what you do or is it going to become more like cable?”

    “If it’s one thing that cable companies have proven to be good at over the years, it’s more ways to get money out of consumers and into their own pockets,” he continued. “Primary broadband providers will take advantage of this to find new ways to charge customers if they want to get high quality service.”
    Hooray! #FreeMarketHigherPrices. MAGA!

    Skooly, do you honestly think cable companies represent a good example of a free market economy?

    If further deregulation leads to higher prices, why does it matter?

    I trust Comcast about as far as I can throw my remote.

    Skooly just likes to insult everyone here because he couldn't possibly be so dumb to believe that so he assumes the rest of us are that dumb.
