RNC Chair complains about internet bias on Fox News after Republicans killed net neutrality


Quote:

Back in the Obama years, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) enforced a 2015 regulatory policy called “net neutrality,” aimed at protecting an open Internet. Under those rules, service providers were prohibited from throttling or blocking Internet sites. “We cannot allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas,” then-President Barack Obama explained as his administration implemented the protections.

When Donald Trump came in and appointed a new majority on the FCC, it moved quickly to kill net neutrality, calling the deregulation a return to “the light-touch regulatory scheme that fostered the internet’s growth, openness and freedom.” Freedom, in this case, meant freedom for companies to decide what Internet content users can access and what content they cannot.

Net neutrality has nothing to do with content platforms.

It would have made it worse with the ability to shutdown complete websites, not just user content placed on other websites.


Do a google on Obama gave away the internet, for you people that clearly forgot!

LOL. You're arguing over Pepsi vs Mountain Dew. In the end, they're both soft drinks and that's all that's matter.

Both shadow banning and content providing restriction is now completely ok after Net Neutrality is gone.

And you'd be wrong.

I'm surprised so many right-wingers didn't know Net Neutrality also protects content. You can read about it in the court case
United States Telecom Assoc. v. FCC, No. 15-1063 (D.C. Cir. 2016)

You're embarrassing yourself. Net neutrality is something entirely different.

Um, net neutrality has nothing to do with internet content. Net neutrality is about everyone paying the same price for access, whether they are a data-hog or not. Ending net neutrality allows internet service providers to either throttle the amount of bytes data-hogs use, or charging data-hogs higher rates for the data they consume.

You do not pay a fixed fee for the amount of electricity or water you consume or the amount of gasoline you put in your car, rather you pay a fixed rate for what you consume.

I don't see why the internet should be any different. People who consume more data should pay more, since their the ones constantly whining and demanding internet service providers provide higher speeds and more band-width, not me.
