Gaming Industry Reacts to Net Neutrality Repeal

Pai chairman of the Federal Communications Commission at a meeting in Washington

Once Title II is undone at the federal level, it is critical that the FCC preempt states looking to impose Title II-type restrictions at the state and local level.

With net neutrality in place, ISPs had to treat all data - no matter what the content was, who owned it, or who created it - passing through their networks the same. "Pai's move to gut net neutrality at the behest of big telecom is breathtaking in its total disregard for the public".

It's not too late, however, and it's important to know what's going on. Inform yourself and be a part of the future process.

"The bottom line is, if you use the internet, this concerns you".

On the bright side, Pai made this video, either to lift our spirits or to make us want to leave the Internet forever.

Despite a strong outcry, the Federal Communications Commission has voted to repeal net neutrality.

What did the government do about it? . Today's decision removes this classification, undoing the legal backing that gave net neutrality its legitimacy.

The problem is that many Americans don't have access to multiple providers. People now really understand what's at stake and we need to translate millions of comments to the FCC into millions of votes in the midterm.

Michael Beckerman, president and CEO of Internet Association, a trade association that represents internet companies such as Amazon, Google and Facebook, opposed the FCC's repeal of the Obama-era rules, saying "relying on ISPs to live up to their own 'promises' is not net neutrality and is bad for consumers". That is absolutely doable, given the number of people who feel passionately about it, and the cross-section of people who feel strongly about it. This isn't just a progressive issue.

Below is a roundup of all the celebrity rage over the FCC's vote. AT&T proposed to create two lanes, a fast one for any content provider that would pay new fees to AT&T, and a slow one for everyone else.

Asserting that a free and open internet has been a driving force of American ingenuity, Congressman John Crowley said the FCC's decision to end net neutrality will not just restrict Americans' ability to innovate, it will impinge on their freedom to communicate.

Net neutrality rules kept internet providers from charging more based on use or services. "In it, he points out that with the new rules, nothing will change for you goofballs online - you can still "'gram food" and do the Harlem Shake, and enjoy your favorite memes. Before, we had the option to have recourse, but now, thanks to the FCC's prompt action, we have the new exciting option of having NO OPTIONS OR RECOURSE!

"Yet, after all the hysterics, here we are", he added. CBS and the Mutual Broadcasting System (MBS) successfully entered national broadcasting by the mid-1930s, prompting NBC executives to leverage the Blue network to prevent further competition.

One would be through the Congressional Review Act, which allows lawmakers to reverse newly instituted regulations. "It is outrageous that they ruled in favor of multi-billion-dollar broadband companies over the interests of consumers", California Senator Kamala Harris tweeted. They also said they believe that these ISPs could also offer potential fast lanes to partner companies or firms with content they want to promote in partnership.

That's why citizens should not have to rely on the goodwill, or even the common sense, of giant companies to guarantee an open, neutral internet.
