House passes bill to restore ’net neutrality’ rules

The House voted Wednesday to restore Obama-era internet rules that would require service providers to treat content equally. Dubbed ’net neutrality’, the policy would prevent service providers from throttling a user’s connection speed based on the user’s activities. The policy, revoked under the Trump administration, was put in place by the FCC during the Obama administration.

And here come all of the diehard jebaited conservatives to say: "finally the dems did one thing right!" Now think about that statement real, real hard. Actually do some research on Net Nuetrality instead of following the bandwagon.

I like net neutrality... because I have fucking Comcast! and thanks to their monopolization of their broadband infrastructure network I have no other choice! That's not competition that's not capitalism that's corporate monopolization! These companies have a fuck ton of power and they need to be regulated because free market is non existent when it comes to your ISP. It's either pay more for continuously less or don't have internet! You get screwed either way! Until competition can catch up perhaps by cutting regulations/restrictions or requirements for permits/contracts... maybe even pushing for tax incentives for internet infrastructure innovative and expansion. BUT UNTIL THEN KEEP A LEASH ON THESE GUYS!

This is one of the most sensible decisions the Democratic Party has made even if it will probably fail

I have not seen any change in my viewing or expenses in relation to my Internet bill so how is net neutrality such a great thing?

Because It’s so much worse now without? Not likely. The internet is more excusable without government involvement.

after Mark Zuckerberg goes to the government to have them censor the internet. Go figure. Though I'm surprised a few commissioners from the FCC actually said no
