Internet Regulate

I agree its working just fine. Why do they want to put all kinds of rules to make it complicated? You just pay to connect or go wifi and that's it. Next thing they'll want to do is like tax you for using the internet, tax you for downloading too much and whatever else.

Obama's next regulate and destroy mission: The Internet

The FCC is planning on making the internet a public utility so it can be regulated much in the same way that phone companies are. The government will argue that they are doing this to boost your internet speeds, or something. When has the government ever been good at making something more efficient? Clearly never - so what's the real reason behind the move? Glenn explains on radio today. Ref. Source 5

Regulate Internet

For anyone who has somehow missed it, there is an upcoming vote by the FCC to utterly gut the United States' net neutrality rules on December 14th. At present, it looks like the vote will pass.

What does this mean? Among other things, it means that ISPs get to decide what their customers see, how fast their connection to a particular site is, and whether or not seeing it will cost them extra.

Among the more likely scenarios is for USA ISPs to start charging websites a fee to continue to be accessible by their customers, and/or for their connection to said customers to not be artificially slowed down. It is more than probable that this would be used as a tool to create effective monopolies, driving some websites out of business in favor of others.

It is entirely possible that in a few months I suddenly won't be able to access this site any more, if JB refuses to knuckle under to what amounts to extortion. I don't actually expect things to go that far, but the fact that I may soon have to trust these corporations to not screw me over for the sake of their bottom line is an atrocious scenario to begin with.

And then there are the ethical and social implications of granting ANYONE the power to determine what information people have access to. This mess is the digital age equivalent of watching people build bonfires outside of libraries, while a really oily guy tries to assure people that they'll only burn the books that really deserve it.
