FCC kicks off effort to roll back net neutrality rules

he FCC voted along party lines Thursday to begin the process of repealing Obama-era net neutrality rules, which require internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon to treat all web traffic equally.

The agency's two Republicans, Chairman Ajit Pai and Commissioner Mike O'Rielly, voted in favor of the measure, which would weaken the FCC's oversight over ISPs and eliminate the regulatory foundation of the 2015 Open Internet Order. The proposal also seeks comment on whether to scrap or modify rules preventing internet providers from blocking or slowing web traffic or negotiating paid deals for internet "fast lanes."

The lone Democrat on the commission, Mignon Clyburn, voted against the proposal.

Here we go

The Federal Communications Commission on Tuesday published the text of its proposal to roll back the agency's net neutrality rules, allowing the public to comment on the new plan.

The agency's commissioners voted along party lines in support of the proposal (PDF), which aims to fulfill FCC Chairman FCC Ajit Pai's promise to eliminate the utility-style regulatory framework the FCC adopted in 2015. Under the proposal, the FCC would throw out the legal underpinnings of the net neutrality order, which reclassified broadband as a so-called Title II utility service under the Communications Act.

Net neutrality is the principle that all traffic on the internet should be treated equally, regardless of whether you're checking Facebook, posting pictures to Instagram or streaming movies from Netflix or Amazon. Even though most people agree with the basic premise of net neutrality, the FCC's rules have become a lightning rod for controversy because they placed broadband providers under the same strict regulations that govern telephone networks.

Network Neutrality is a complex subject. John Oliver says it's one that makes people eye-roll, because it can all get a bit technical.

Also, the players are not exactly as aligned as you might think. Some big Silly-Con Valley corporations, like Google, Microsoft, and Facebook, favor Network Neutrality. The ISPs, like Verizon, Comcast, or AT & T, tend to be against.

I like this website. Pretty much lays out the issue, and what's at stake - and what you can do about it.

July 12th is a National Day of Action for Net Neutrality.
https://www.battleforthenet.com/july12/

Facebook, Google, and Amazon are on "our" side.
https://www.theverge.com/2017/7/7/15938 ... action-fcc

So are Netflix, Reddit, and Donald's fave, Twitter. (Oh yeah, and Pornhub. Can't leave them out.)

As ap215 noted earlier, noticeably absent will be Tumblr, a new stance, quel surprise, after being acquired by Verizon.

Each is, of course, on their own side. In this case they may align with most of us. But that's because its in their own interest as well/primarily.

In general, though this rule breaks down, it's the telecoms and ISPs who want to get rid of Net Neutrality, as they profit more from getting rid of it, and the content and software providers who want to keep it, as it usually works to their advantage.

Of course, my personal position is that Net Neutrality is good for most consumers, citizens, netizens, and Internet users, in general, so yeah ... this is a rare case where consumer and some corporate interests may align.
