Net Neutrality decision could have negative impact

With the information given, net neutrality would be eradicated and we the people will no longer have the rights we now have on the world wide web, the Federal Communications Commission will most likely vote no. Despite the unfortunately overheated rhetoric around this issue in recent years, the truth is that we can have an open internet without ill-suited public utility regulations, which only wreck what makes the internet so great - a force of innovation that connects people and improves lives.

The FCC is slated to vote December 14 on Pai's plan, which would reverse an Obama-era classification of broadband as a utility-style telecommunications service.

"We could have that conversation, but what these guys want to do is rip away the current protections and pretend they'll come back with something stronger and that's just never proven to be the case for them", Wood said. Ed Markey (D-Mass.).

And on Thursday, the Justice Department announced that a NY man had been with threatening to kill Rep. (R-N.Y.) and his family if he doesn't try to protect net neutrality. This is how the Internet has always been- a free and open platform- and how most Americans (77 percent according to a recent poll) want it to remain.

Massive companies and everyday Americans alike support net neutrality, which begs the question: Why is the FCC now on track to dismantle it? This would allow them to speed up or slow down certain content on the internet at their will. The actual FCC order on net neutrality. "Well, you noticed that paid prioritization is off the list now". This seems to be the one issue that conservatives and liberals can both agree on, yet the plan to revoke net neutrality seems to be moving forward without signs of slowing.

To crack down on one kind of peer-to-peer traffic, ISPs would have to crack down on all peer-to-peer traffic.

Net neutrality regulations are what keep ISPs such as AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon in check, preventing them from not only taking unfair measures to stay ahead of their rivals in the industry but also throttling bandwidth speeds, putting content behind paywalls, and even blocking websites.
