Why Trump Wants to Toss Obama's Net Neutrality Rules: QuickTake

Twitter Slapped by FCC Chief Amid Wider Swipe at Silicon Valley

So look, if you've read our primer on net neutrality or paid attention to our coverage of this subject for the last decade, you should know by now that net neutrality violations are just a symptom of the disease that is a lack of competition in the broadband sector. Internet service providers became treated as public utilities and were forbidden from blocking or slowing rivals' content. The rules also applied open-internet protections to wireless services for tablets and smartphones. And Facebook, Google and Twitter were grilled by angry senators after they acknowledged extensive efforts by Russians to spread disinformation during the 2016 elections. In the chapter, McCabe wrote: "Today's Internet has been described as an information superhighway". This would encourage more users to make the switch to Netflix. Ending the regulations would be a huge win for ISPs, giving them a chance to sell "fast-lane" speeds to the highest bidder. Importantly, this is crucial to India, as we are in a process of formulating our own approach to net neutrality.

Too bad this is an instance where the government has decided to do what it wants instead of listening to the clear, overwhelmingly opinion of the general public.

From New York University: "NYU seeks to...ensure a wide range of perspectives, including international perspectives, in the educational experience".

With a pay-per-view Internet, it is easy to see how inventors and entrepreneurs and their startups could be muscled out of the marketplace by big corporations that pay for a top spot on the Web. Structural flaws built into the algorithms used to sort online content may result in racial and other bias in our news feeds. Most Americans don't have a choice of home broadband service providers. Say you want to listen to some music; that's another $15. It has fed the unfiltered id at the expense of genuine understanding.

Sen. Patrick Leahy has been one of the Senate's biggest supporters of internet technology.

The move has education advocates worried it will be more difficult for students to access online educational resources (OERs). Companies that need super-fast internet can pay more, and those that aren't concerned with speed can pay less.

The FCC's website shows it received almost 23 million comments by late Tuesday on its net neutrality proposal.

Pew did not take a stance on any wrongdoing in the incident.

Net neutrality allows all companies, no matter how big or small, to have equal access to the internet. Providers who pay to maintain it?
