If we don’t have net neutrality protections that enforce tenets of fairness online, you give internet service providers the ability to choose winners and losers. This is not hyperbole.

Net neutrality is the idea that the internet should be free and open for everyone. If a service provider can block you from seeing certain content or can make you pay extra for it, that hurts all of us and we should have rules against it.

Barack Obama Former President of United States of America

Internet providers have a legal obligation not to block or limit your access to a website. Cable companies can't decide which online stores you should shop at or which streaming services you can use. And they can't let any company pay for priority over its competitors.

We believe that consumers should continue to enjoy open on-ramps to the Internet. That means no Internet access provider should block or degrade Internet traffic, nor should they sell ‘fast lanes’ that prioritize particular Internet services over others. These rules should apply regardless of whether you’re accessing the Internet using a cable connection, a wireless service, or any other technolog... See More

Taking away Net Neutrality is the Authoritarian dream. Consolidating information into the hands of a few controlled by a few. Dangerous territory.

Net Neutrality protects us from online censorship and our ability to access and send information on the Internet. It prevents ISPs, such as cable and telephone companies (Ajit was legal counsel for Verizon) from preferring certain content, applications, or services from others.

Fast lanes or “paid prioritization” create anti-competitive incentives for ISPs to favor their own services over those of their competitors. Though Pai thinks paid prioritization would somehow benefit consumers, allowing ISPs to make such arrangements would stifle innovation online and make it harder for the next great streaming service or social network to reach the market. This is not an idle wo... See More

Repealing the 2015 net neutrality protections would cause immediate harm to the innovation economy. Access fees, fast lanes, and preferential treatment of content would undermine the openness of the internet and disproportionately hurt startups’ and small businesses’ ability to compete with entrenched incumbents.

What you really want is an expansion of high-speed broadband, and in order to do that you have to create the incentives for those smaller ISPs to invest. They don’t really control their own fiber if the government tells them exactly how they’re going to use their investment.
