Oh this may very well fuck you guys too because you only have two hardwire connections to the world wide web. One that I believe goes through Greenland and one that goes through the US.

Apparently the late great Patty Duke supported the repeal.

This is what Comcast promised before Net Neutrality rules were pulled.
Quote
COMCAST IS COMMITTED TO A FREE AND OPEN INTERNET.

 

Here is what we mean when we say that:
 
Comcast supports Net Neutrality. We are the only Internet Service Provider in America legally bound by full Net Neutrality Rules. We support the FCC's efforts to craft strong, enforceable Open Internet rules.

Comcast won't block access to lawful content.

Comcast won't throttle back the speed at which content comes to you.

Comcast doesn't prioritize Internet traffic or create paid fast lanes.

Comcast's Internet Essentials will make the Internet more accessible to low income families.

Comcast will inspire innovation, promote learning, create access to jobs.

 

An Open Internet with access for all. That’s what we’re for.

This is what they changed it to after it was overturned

We believe in full transparency in our customer policies.

We are for sustainable and legally enforceable net neutrality protections for our customers.

It's not over--until the Republicans overwhelmingly vote against it and PO even more people.

Out of all the companies to be coming out to explain net neutrality I'm surprised Burger King is one of them.

Louisiana Senator Trying to Kill States Option to Restore Net Neutrality
« Reply #37 on: March 19, 2018, 09:45:22 PM »
The GOP is trying backdoor "solutions" now

https://www.engadget.com/2018/03/07/senate-open-internet-preservation-act/

The Senate has its own insincere net neutrality bill

It only pays lip service to what net neutrality advocates actually want.

Now that the House of Representatives has floated a superficial net neutrality bill, it's the Senate's turn. Louisiana Senator John Kennedy has introduced a companion version of the Open Internet Preservation Act that effectively replicates the House measure put forward by Tennessee Representative Marsha Blackburn. As before, it supports net neutrality only on a basic level -- and there are provisions that would make it difficult to combat other abuses.

The legislation would technically forbid internet providers from blocking and throttling content, but it wouldn't bar paid prioritization. Theoretically, ISPs could create de facto "slow lanes" for competing services by offering mediocre speeds unless they pay for faster connections. The bill would also curb the FCC's ability to deal with other violations, and would prevent states from passing their own net neutrality laws. In short, the bill is much more about limiting regulation than protecting open access and competition.

Kennedy's bill isn't expected to go far in the Senate, just as Blackburn's hasn't done much in the House. However, his proposal comes mere days after senators put forward a Congressional Review Act that would undo the FCC's decision to kill net neutrality. Kennedy had claimed he was considering support for the CRA, but his proposal contradicts that -- why push a heavily watered-down bill if you were willing to revert to the stronger legislation? It's not a completely surprising move and is largely symbolic, but it's disappointing for those who hoped there would be truly bipartisan support for a return to net neutrality.
