I heard that the FCC is attacking Net Neutrality again. Is this true?

EDIT (12/14/2017): FCC Voted to kill Net Neutrality by a 3-2 vote. I don't really know what happens now but I hear Trump and Congress can still stop it but I don't see any hope in Trump stopping it, while Congress I'm pretty sure most of them are probably on the pay rolls of the internet providers. So while I have the chance to say something, Goody Bye everyone and hope CR can survive through this until next presidental election where the next president may to fix the internet or when a new FCC leader is placed in.

I believe they're going to be voting on it next month, if that's what you're asking.

they have been "attacking" it since Bill Clinton created the bill back in the 90s and kicking it down the road to each preceding president. since other countries have begun to "control" the net, I suppose it was only time for the states to join the bandwagon so to speak.

Pretty much. It's due to internet providers lobbying hard against net neutrality.

From what I understand, It'll allow internet companies to break up their packages into individual websites, in addition to network speed and data usage like they already do. So if you want to be able to get on more then a basic set of websites like Youtube and Facebook, you'll have to pay more.

It will also allow them to charge the owners of various websites to get their websites in on the cheaper packages, so they can basically double dip. For example, if you want to get on a non-basic website, such as Crunchyroll, you'll have to pay extra, while they can simultaneously make the owner of Crunchyroll pay them to lower the price customers have to pay to get on Crunchyroll.

This is one of the most important issues right now for consumer rights, and it's one that I really wish that we didn't have to fight for again. Basically, if you hate TV: then stand up to protect Net Neutrality.

BTW, expect replies from your representatives saying that this was an unconstitutional action by the Obama administration or something. Clog up their phone lines, and get ready to send money to orgs like the ACLU, and get ready to protest.

Net neutrality is the corporate dream sold to the consumer to keep big business going strong. Only the naive believe it exists

I'm sure there are large businesses who benefit from net neutrality, just as consumers do. Other then that, you're going to need to back up what you're saying.

That's the point I was making· they oppose corporate censorship by citing "net neutrality" serves the common rabble . The desires of the ruling elite carried by groupthink they perpetuate. Its no secret money is made by an open marketplace of ideas, so net neutrality is thus important for decision makers looking to find new markets and products to sell.

Ah, it seems I misunderstood what you were saying. My apologies.
