A half-decent argument in favor of net neutrality?


Woops forgot to put the word repeal in there. So far in laymans terms all I've heard is either the free market will sort it out(which I dont have much faith in considering telecom companies) or that better regulation could be implemented(which requires me having faith that would actually get through).

I love how democrats always want to argue against the "both are s***" arguments by cherry picking individual issues and ignoring all the rest.

THEY ARE BOTH s***!

If you can't see how your party is just as corrupt and just as interested in f***ing you as the gop is then you're blind.


lol keep telling yourself how clever and insightful you are when your 100% Republican-driven internet cuts you off or throttles all your favorite sites. You'll probably just end up blaming Democrats somehow.

Like, how politically stupid are some of you guys?

- the GOP supports killing net neutrality
- Democrats don't
- killing net neutrality is bad, and only Republicans support it because reasons
- CLEARLY BOTH SIDES ARE JUST AS BAD

The right wing screws everything up again?

Perhaps educating yourself rather than being a total snowflake might help?

There is more information out there if you decide to look past the talking points and political fear mongering.
Instead of posting fake news sites no one except you and Facebook friends have ever heard of like "realclearpolicy", what exactly do you have to prove Net Neutrality is bad?

Oh look another net neutrality thread devolved in partisan mud slinging.

Still waiting to hear an even half decent argument in favor of net neutrality. Satellite is also unusable for video games in the literal best case scenario and in my personal experience is utter garbage. Would much rather use unreliable and lossy fixed wireless internet or leech off a 4G connection if I dont have access to actual good internet service.

A half-decent argument in favor of net neutrality? Which is better:

Paying for internet... plus a charge to access and download Steam games, but not including YouTube since that's the video package, which doesn't include Netflix or Hulu because that's the video streaming package, not to be confused with Twitch because that's part of the streamer package.

or

Paying for internet.
He said in favor of repeal of which there is no argument of decency in favor of. It is horrible to repeal it.

This is what happens when you let government think for you.

You become complacent with things that you find mundane, until they decide to spice it up, and make money off of it.

there are still a large number of Americans that are smokers. the tax alone on a pack of cigarettes is more than 400% of the cigarettes. Then there is sales tax on top of that. Gasoline is nearly all tax. Now internet?

Is this how they plan to thwart the piracy of movies and music, by forcing people to pay royalties to companies that create digital content, even if they are not using them?

The answer is yes.

You will have to pay for access to websites, like google.

You will have no choice of which browser you can use, as it will be decided by your ISP.

Apple will likely end up being the only company that most ISP's support because it will be the least intrusive, and allow for the least amount of access.

This will trickle down to things like STEAM becoming obsolete. Home-made PC's will be gone. Windows will disappear, and Microsoft will be a memory, nearly overnight.

Why?

Because you or your parents think that Net neutrality meant something else... it's not going to make the Deep Net or the Dark Net go anywhere.

It's just going to effect that majority population, that conform to what the government dictates.

If the entire government emulates a dictatorship, by creating an entity of itself as an operating "PERSON" then our country is no better than North Korea, and it will only be a matter of time before they realize they can forcefeed us things, like Fake news, that they created, to make it all seem like the world loves America, when the truth is, our government's greed is on par with why America exists in the first place.

When people realize that porn is gone from the internet, is when the truth of the matter will shine through.

The government will give us back porn, and only then, will you see how tight the reigns are.
If what I said doesn't makes sense... it's because you don't want it to make sense.

This entire post is riddled with stupid.

The government is handing the reigns of the internet to the free market. ISPs are going to make up their own rules now that there is no government protection for making the internet free and equal.

Odds are that they're not going to do anything to the common consumer for a while at least. They're just going to start playing "highway robber" on anything that comes through their pipes, so netflix pays more, google pays more, Amazon pays more, and the cost then gets passed down to you.

The benefit of this to the ISP is that they still get to add fees for stupid s*** on top of everything but they don't look like the bad guy because it's not Comcast raising the prices but Netflix and Amazon.

To go back to the airline analogy, the Airport will just charge all the planes landing extra for gas and for the use of their services and the airlines will raise the ticket prices to make up for it, and everyone will just get mad at the airlines for raising ticket prices or reducing amenities.

What they are reporting can be found elsewhere and verified. Attacking the source doesn't negate the facts. What do you have that prove's it's good... I mean besides the talking point of politics and their sheep whose only purpose is to "resist". The article from the first link "clearly" outlines it. Sorry if you can't understand that.

The simple truth is no matter what I or anyone else posts you and others like you will find a way to ignore it, because frankly you don't understand it. You've been given your marching orders and your talking points and that's as far as your knowledge on this entire debacle goes.

Washington (AFP) - A top US regulator, defending an effort to roll back so-called "net neutrality" rules, said Tuesday that large internet platforms represent the biggest threat to online freedom because they routinely block "content they don't like."

Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai delivered remarks days after unveiling a proposal to reverse a hotly contested 2015 rule requiring broadband firms to treat all online traffic equally.

Pai said internet platforms -- he singled out Twitter -- play a more significant role than broadband operators in determining what internet users see.

"Despite all the talk about the fear that broadband providers could decide what internet content consumers can see, recent experience shows that so-called edge providers are in fact deciding what content they see," Pai said.

"These providers routinely block or discriminate against content they don't like."

The blunt remarks appeared to confirm a tougher atmosphere in Washington for Silicon Valley firms after years of close ties.

Pai, appointed by President Donald Trump, offered an example of Twitter's decision to block a video by a Republican candidate "because it featured a pro-life message," referring to the politician's claim of the "sale of baby body parts."

He said Twitter "appears to have a double standard when it comes to suspending or de-verifying conservative users' accounts as opposed to those of liberal users," Pai said.

"This conduct is many things, but it isn't fighting for an open internet."

Pai said online platforms are "secretly editing certain users' comments" and "caving to repressive foreign governments' demands to block certain speech" which would be considered "repugnant" in the United States.

"In this way, edge providers are a much bigger actual threat to an open internet than broadband providers, especially when it comes to discrimination on the basis of viewpoint," Pai said.

The dispute over net neutrality has been the subject of several court battles, with backers arguing strong rules are needed to guard against powerful broadband firms like Comcast and AT&T acting as "gatekeepers" that can punish rivals.

Pai said the debate on "net neutrality" appears driven by Silicon Valley firms' business interests.

"These companies want to place much tougher regulations on broadband providers than they are willing to have placed upon themselves," he said.

"They might cloak their advocacy in the public interest, but the real interest of these Internet giants is in using the regulatory process to cement their dominance in the internet economy."
