US appeals court says it won’t reconsider the FCC’s net neutrality rules repeal

According to US appeals court, it will not reconsider an Oct 2019 ruling rejecting requests by 15 US states and advocacy groups. In Dec 2017, the FCC reversed Obama-era rules prohibiting ISPs from blocking or throttling traffic or offering paid fast lanes, a blow to large tech companies and consumer groups that had championed the level playing field of net neutrality.

net neutrality is not really neutral, and is a is a way for government to have control over the internet, change my mind.

I can not wait for the day ELon Musk gets the remainder of the satellites he is launching to give everyone equal access to the web. Then I can leave behind forever the corrupt comcast type media FOREVER. I already turned off their "TV" programming propaganda years ago but was forced to pay them for internet as they are a complete monopoly.

Net neutrality prevents ISPs and big tech from joining together to throttle independent content creators, thus pushing competition off the Internet. It should be a bipartisan issue, but most people with an opinion don't seem to understand its purpose.

The Dems should just make reinstitution of net neutrality a campaign issue. It's a guaranteed win with such massive public approval. Tie the repeal of net neutrality and the concerns around throttling connections to Trumps FCC. Only idiots support the sale of the internet to ISPs.

Won't stop California from essentially passing laws. Which will force ISP's to follow them as it's too expensive to have two separate way of doing things.
