FCC Doubles Down On Its Internet Attack
Wochit Headline News - Friday, 19 May 2017
For the past couple weeks, the FCC has been taking comments from the public regarding net neutrality. In defiance of basically everyone who isn’t a bot, the FCC has voted to commit to their assault on internet freedom. What does this mean wel nothing, for now. First, the commission will “consider” Chairman Ajit Pai’s proposal to reclassify internet service providers as common carriers. That’s dense and no doubt boring, but that shift would allow ISPs essentially unchecked power, and that change the way we consumer the internet.
