Trump and his Obedient Republicans have ordered an end to Net Neutrality in June

❝ Landmark U.S. “net neutrality” rules will expire on June 11, and new regulations handing providers broad new power over how consumers can access the internet will take effect…

The FCC in December repealed the Obama-era open-internet rules set in 2015, which bars providers from blocking or slowing down access to content or charging consumers more for certain content.

❝ The prior rules were intended to ensure a free and open internet, give consumers equal access to web content and bar broadband service providers from favoring their own material or others.

Trump’s chumps don’t care about transparency or equal access. They’re perfectly willing to obey daddy’s new rules as long as he promises to continue crackdowns on furriners and folks who ain’t white enough.

Meanwhile, like most of Trump’s crimes, this is essentially an economic piece of crap designed to keep life free and easy for folks with lots of spare money – and screw the rest of us. Corporate access being the highest priority.

  1. Ignorance is Strength says:

    FCC Chairman Ajit Pai says you’re going to love the death of net neutrality https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2018/06/ajit-pai-says-youre-going-to-love-the-death-of-net-neutrality/ However FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democrat who voted against the repeal, predicted harmful consequences for consumers: “Internet service providers now have the power to block websites, throttle services, and censor online content. They will have the right to discriminate and favor the Internet traffic of those companies with whom they have pay-for-play arrangements and the right to consign all others to a slow and bumpy road. Plain and simple, thanks to the FCC’s rollback of net neutrality, Internet providers have the legal green light, the technical ability, and business incentive to discriminate and manipulate what we see, read, and learn online.”
