Verizon Protests - Pai-Led Massive Vote To Dismantle The Net Neutrality Protections

Verizon Protests - Pai-Led Massive Vote To Dismantle The Net Neutrality Protections

"These aren't politicians, where you're judging them on their stances", Wu said in a Wednesday phone interview.

"We believe [the proposal] will result in material negative consequences for residents and businesses nation-wide, including: abusive gatekeeper behavior by dominant broadband providers, many of whom already have a de facto monopoly on Internet access in specific regions, paid prioritization schemes, whereby ISPs charge more to access certain sites or apps and blocking or throttling (which is the intentional slowing down of) specific content, resulting in a less competitive and diverse marketplace", said Madigan.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai proposed a plan that would eliminate Obama-era regulations.

Columbia University Law professor Tim Wu, who is credited with first coining the term "net neutrality" in 2003, said it wasn't too surprising the debate was having a minimal impact on consumers' views of large internet service providers.

Schneiderman pointed to a study paid for by an industry group that represents Internet service providers called Broadband for America, which he says has acknowledged that as many as eight million comments submitted to the FCC may have been fake.

State Rep. Katrina Shankland of Stevens Point is one of many Democrats who signed a letter to the FCC asking that net neutrality be upheld.




According to a Google subsidiary, DoubleClick, 53 percent of online visits are abandoned if a web page takes longer than three seconds to load.

This is not the first time issues related to net neutrality have arisen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., made the biggest headlines with his version, after a confusing bridge analogy. "Now that's not legal but with the potentially impending repeal they would be able to do that", said James. You know where that's wrong, senator?

U.S. Rep. Paul Tonko, D-Amsterdam, has been a proponent of keeping the current net-neutrality rules. Many people only have one option to access the internet.

Broadband companies are public companies, which means capital investment expenditures are public data.

Net neutrality is a good deal for consumers and small-business owners.
