FCC plan would give Internet providers power to choose the sites customers see and use
The move would roll back the Obama-era rules on net neutrality, setting the stage for a vote next month that could reshape the entire digital ecosystem.
This is another red alert for everyone who uses the internet. This ruling is a huge attack on the democratic foundation our internet was built upon. It will essentially allow the big boys AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast to speed up and slow down sites as they choose. So if you have Verizon, Tumblr might be super fast, but not if you have Comcast! And forget about loading Facebook unless you have a social network bonus plan for 3.99 a month! That is the future of the internet if this goes through. Do you have an online portfolio on a wordpress site? Good luck sharing that with anyone.
Seriously, if anything, make it known you oppose this change. It really only serves internet providers, no one else.
