Hope you guys manage to stop this. I don't know what it would mean for the wider international internet, but probably nothing good.

I was going to sarcastically support an end to net neutrality but frankly I can't even think of any reason why it would be a good idea other than transparent greed.

Nah it's going through 100%

Like granted I wasnt super hopefull about it's chances back when isp's had to be re-classified as a common carrier, but the fcc at that time was pressured by google and john Oliver into doing basically what everybody could admit was their job as the ISP's lobbyists howled about a coming retribution

Now they get their retribution thanks to Trump, its not actually a huge deal though it opens the door for a bunch of theoretical shitty bullshit in the future but like rn its probably just making the shakedown of netflix that comcast is already doing legal and tbh whooooo caaaaares about netflix getting shook down (ppl with netflix subscriptions because now they're paying comcast twice, which is like total hoseshit)

I mean its hard to actually get worked up about it when like the healthcare of millions of americans was on the line a few months ago and could be on the line again after this tax cut bullshit, and while ICE is targeting like specific schools and churches for deportation a few extra bones on a hulu subscription doesnt seem like such a big deal.

"""""free market"""""
when they say free market they really mean price fixing, censorship, and lack of competition, so not free market.

I mean yeah but "free market" is just like a political buzzword that doesn't really mean anything

like at the end of the day it's just all about who the market is for spoiler: it's the 1% occupy never dies

Basically, internet service providers (Comcast, AT&T, etc) want to be able to throttle speeds on certain sites based on whether they've paid the ISPs extra, or potentially, if the customer has paid extra. Right now the internet is neutral in terms of what traffic & sites get better speeds, but the ISPs want to give preference to certain sites or certain costumers in such a way that would allow them to charge more (as if we aren't already getting bottom-of-the-barrel speeds in this country for insane prices). You can easily imagine these companies starting to create "bundles" that you have to buy in to, just like they did with cable. "Buy the social network bundle to get access to facebook, twitter, instagram, and more!"
