Steven's analogy to the postal service is the most apt in this video. To elaborate, the FCC has more power and won't let shit like that happen in Europe because the FCC requires internet providers to gain approval from them of their proposals of creating new technology or creating a new business model to the FCC, which could stop internet providers from getting to their 'corruptive ways' as you think they are going to do in the United States.
Also the amount of ISPs and the amount of buisnesses on the internet, it is simply a simple "couple die for many" situation. Under Net Neutrality, the large tech giants have done more censorship and data throttling of content than any ISP ever did before. 1. The instances of ISPs slowing down or blocking data to favor certain sites over others are few and far between.
Net neutrality is the idea that Internet service providers (ISPs) must treat content, users, platforms and equipment equally and not discriminate between them. You don't connect to an ISP to access the ISP's content You connect through an ISP to connect to someone else's content (YouTube, Netflix, Facebook, Huff Po, DisInfo Wars, etc).
I grant you that in a free market, there exists the possibility that there would be ISPs that would take money to favor one customer over another (your Altavista and Google reference), but that would only be a market opportunity for another ISP to enter the market and offer faster data to Google.
Which means that my ISP, Comcast, cannot slow down Netflix in order to compel me to buy their overpriced streaming video service because it goes faster. Pioneers that created all things internet wright FCC, hey you don't understand the Steven Crowder Net Neutrality Video internet, leave Net Neutrality in place.
The best interests of consumers, Internet companies, and ISPs are now best served by bipartisan discussions and problem solving. Well net neutrality is not an internet regulation, it's an ISP regulation. The idea that the internet was fine” is a matter of subjectivity, but there have been several incidents of ISP's throttling and blackmailing content providers.
Ian Tuttle notes at National Review that when the FCC first attempted net neutrality regulations in 2010, they were only able to cite just four examples of anticompetitive behavior, all relatively minor.” Cell phone networks , which are not subject to net neutrality-esque regulations, don't engage in such anticompetitive behavior.
With net neutrality, the government puts a price fix on the Internet that eliminates value, demand, and competition. The internet is not a public utility, anyone should have the opportunity of becoming an ISP, net neutrality hinders this. Net neutrality is the notion that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) shouldn't be able to "slow down, speed up, or block data as it is routed from its content originator to end users" in order to favor particular sites.
Strong net neutrality rules are necessitated by, among other factors, the lack of competition in the broadband service market,” Michael Beckerman, the group's CEO, wrote. So without laws to ensure fair play from ISPs u could get throttled multiple times for certain types of data, or denied access all together.
By billing heavy users like Youtube money is going to come from advertising companies that advertise for those same big companies that people seem to hate so much. I sincerely hope that in the event that it stays, people will prefer to use ISPs that won't throttle their connections and won't offer premium connectivity packages, keeping things fair.
Net Neutrality makes it for 1 gb of data from source A has to be treated the same as 1gb of data from source B. Now that it's gone, Comcast, Charter, AT&T, Verizon have total control over what we can and can't access on the internet. Without net neutrality, this type of private arrangement between ISPs and the big services providers becomes legal.
