    ... Airbnb, Google parent Alphabet, Amazon, Dropbox, Facebook, Microsoft, Netflix, Twitter, Snap, and Spotify—have made their disagreement with Pai’s position known. LINK

    Wow! If I had known all those celebrities and giant corporations opposed Trump on net neutrality I would have opposed him too!

    When this is giving up later this month companies will be able to control what you can see and do on the internet. It will become less free.

    It is bs.

    Real simple to me. If Cher and Alyssa Milano and Mark Ruffalo are FOR Net Neutrality, then I am against it. Not hard for me.

    For some it may be more complicated than that.

    Here are some explanations. One is a rather simple explanation.



    Here is another explanation.



    Here is the test if you are ever confused about anything. If the left are for it, be against it. If the left are against it, be for it.

    You will be on the right side every time. No exceptions.

    Opposing something just because someone comes from a different party is just dumb. I don't like a lot of celebrities but if they say something logical, then Ill agree with them.

    We are on a metered service, 1 terabyte a month or you pay more, soon it will be pay for 100. Comcast.
    Soon we will be paying for everything, already news sites only allow a few free views a month to read articles.
    I would hope the gov sites stay up like the SOS, etc, but who knows. I'm sure shopping sites will be free, but who knows, if your server does not network with them, maybe not.

    Same with insurance, go out of network and boom you pay.

    This is Trump and the GOP, business remember is their priority, not people, and certainty not poor people.

    TV will be a luxury , already is if one is poor. Can't afford cable or a modem, no TV, but a few stations that come in like crap.

    This is the GOP.

    You claim to know science but know jack shit about the internet. A little knowledge and there is no company or country on earth that can control your access. maxresdefault.jpg

    Of course you won't. Nobody expects logic or reason from you.

    You do realise that the internet is a commodity ? No matter what happens in the end the market will determine the price.
