FCC Slams 'Desperate' Dems Seeking Delay on Vote to Overturn Obama-Era Rule on Net Neutrality

Hricik says although the plan to repeal Net Neutrality comes from the FCC Chairman, Ajit Pai, and he does have the swing vote, congress could put an end to it. Hundreds of people are already protesting in hopes to stop the vote on the 14th.

The main argument presented for dismantling net neutrality is internet freedom.

That is also the day that the Federal Communications Bar Association will host a roast of Pai, which will likely see protests as well, if past is prologue-Former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler took some heat at a chairman's dinner before he made a decision to propose Title II-based rules. The International Institute of Communications operates on a not-for-profit basis "to enable the balanced, open dialogue that shapes the policy agenda". Public interest groups, internet companies and internet service providers all agree: We need to preserve an open internet. In 2007, during part of Pearl Jam's Lollapalooza webcast sponsored by AT&T, the company muted and censored parts of the event where Pearl Jam criticized former president George W. Bush. Even in an intensely divided political climate, those in the United States across party lines support undiscriminated internet access.

For example, Verizon can't slow down Google for its customers in order to make it more convenient for Verizon customers to use the Yahoo search engine, which it owns. A year prior to this, Verizon teamed up with Discover and Barclay to form another mobile payment system called Isis (now called Softcard). The Pew Center found six of the seven most submitted comments argued against net neutrality regulations. Internet providers blocked people from sending emails and blocked certain sites.

"A free and open Internet is vital to ensuring a level playing field online, and we believe that your proposed action may be based on an incomplete understanding of the public record in this proceeding", the Senators wrote.

Similar details also were reported Tuesday by the Bloomberg and Reuters news agencies, as well as the Wall Street Journal . Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Mueller is also conducting a broad investigation of the matter.

"Three of these nine instances featured variations of a popular pro-net-neutrality message, while the others promoted several different anti-net-neutrality statements", the Pew Research Center said.

However, we still have time to fight against this and to protect the freedom we have on the internet. For starters, we can call the FCC at 1-888-225-5322 and tell them we support keeping net neutrality.

Members of the Napa County Green Party invite the community to join our protest to save net neutrality this Thursday from noon to 2 p.m.in front of the Napa Verizon store at 1715 Trancas Street.

Iffy claims have come from the other side of the debate, too, such as the notion that federal regulators had never stepped in to make those providers change their service plans.
