Northstate protesters support net neutrality

If adopted, the new rules would reverse current regulations that require Internet service providers to give equal treatment to all websites. Net Neutrality supports our freedom of speech.

And they are making it personal by protesting outside stores of Pai's former employer (where he worked from 2001 to 2003)-Verizon, claiming that, "the company has been spending millions on lobbying and lawsuits to kill net neutrality so they can gouge us all for more money". If one were to take note of the ever-increasing rate at which innovations have been made in social media, smartphone apps, and computing, then how could one say that the very regulations that keep the internet open are a detriment to progress? Many have come out and spoken against repealing this regulation, yet the FCC, specifically chairman Ajit Pai, continue to ignore this outrage, focusing only on the potential profit - Mr. Pai was a lawyer for Verizon, which has stated outright that if these regulations were removed, they would introduce "fast lanes" for websites that paid more and throttle the speed to websites that did not choose to pay for this service, whether due to their belief that the internet should be free to all to browse as they see fit, or because they simply can not afford to pay such a fee. These net neutrality rules were passed in 2015, and have broad support from groups ranging from civil liberty organizations to internet giants like Google. Ending net neutrality could allow ISPs to intentionally slow down or block certain websites, giving priority and faster speeds to content providers who pay for it.




"We're putting that protection, those consumer protections back in place". "We are able to collaborate, learn, improve our worlds, participate in our society, and bring the things we love to people who are moved by them". But net neutrality is only a part of how the Internet is regulated.
