They just voted to go forward with the process of eliminating the rules I think. As of now they are still in place but haven't been enacted anyway.

Bullshit

Uh, oh.

Comcast Sics Its Legal Goons on Net Neutrality Advocates 

A couple of weeks ago, it was discovered that a significant number of anti-net neutrality comments on the FCC’s website were being fraudulently attributed to real people. The pro-net neutrality advocacy group Fight for the Future proceeded to set up a website to raise awareness of the problem and collect more evidence of the obvious astroturfing going on. Today, the group revealed that the most hated company in America had sent them a cease and desist letter.

Mark your calendar for the net neutrality Day of Action

As the Trump-era FCC moves to repeal net neutrality, the deadline for new comments on its proposal is rapidly approaching: July 17. With that, a diverse coalition of supporters of the current net neutrality rules are planning a last-ditch mass internet protest for tomorrow, July 12: Battle for the Net’s “Internet-Wide Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality.”

Among other actions, Battle for the Net is encouraging websites or mobile apps to display banners or other content demonstrating how they believe they and their users will be disadvantaged if net neutrality is repealed. For example, some sites will display “spinning beachball of death”, “blocked,” or “upgrade” alert modals that ask users to imagine cable companies interfering with the equal delivery of their content, and encourage users to contact the FCC and Congress to defend the existing rules. (These alerts won’t actually slow down the sites that use them.)

I think the FCC was hacked. This document is currently being hosted by FCC.gov.

Another example of fucking bots being the reason we can't have nice things.

Net neutrality becomes a battle of the bots

But, thanks to bots, “public opinion” is less clear when it comes to about 21.8 million comments submitted to the FCC since the current chairman, former Verizon lawyer Ajit Pai, proposed rolling back significant elements of that order’s provisions.

Which is pretty much the point of bots – to obscure the opinions of actual humans. As Motherboard reported this week, data analytics company Gravwell found that only about 18% (3,863,929) of the comments submitted to the FCC website and through its API were “unique.”

The rest were likely from “automated astroturfing bots,” and overwhelmingly favored doing away with net neutrality – the opposite of the Freedman poll’s findings. However, Gravwell did find a few that supported net neutrality.

The FCC's plan to undo net neutrality is about to be revealed

Chairman Ajit Pai's reversal of Title II changes could be presented later today.

Back in April, new FCC chairman Ajit Pai outlined a plan to undo net neutrality protections implemented during the Obama administration, before taking public comments. Millions of messages in response crashed the FCC's website for a time, but despite opposition, he is reportedly ready to move forward and may unveil more details this week. The Wall Street Journal, New York Times and Politico separately reported that we will find out details later on Tuesday, before the commission votes on them in December.

I don't really think there is anything we can do Floyd. Pai is just going to do whatever the fuck he feels like because he can. It wouldn't matter if 300 million complaints from 300 million citizens came in, as long as 5 entities are for repealing net neutrality, that is what is going to happen. The only thing I feel I can do is never vote for another republican again. I've voted for them in the past, but I think I'm now a 1 issue voter, and this is a pretty big one.

That's what really chaps my ass, InTen. One Chairman and five BODs or Trustees or whatever can set the direction while completely ignoring the input of millions of citizens.

Cable and internet companies raising their prices?  My god, that's never happened before in the history of man.

Luckily this info is from the DailyKos so we know it's not slanted in any way.

Jesus, comcast has just announced a 1000 dollar bonus for employees.   The morons will say it's the tax bill.  I absolutely know they swallow that stuff all the way up till comcast slowly raises their prices up up up.

Oh well, Capitalism.  I'm a proponent.  Adapt, move on, make plans.    We've elected a congress and president who believe in taking restrictions off.  You either trust the corporations will keep prices down, or you plan for them moving them up.  Thing is, at this point, it's out of your hands..  All you can do is not use it.  Good luck to everyone.  You have choices in this country.  

BTW, I like Coke coming out and saying they're just gonna roll that shit into buying back stock and pleasing stake holders.  I might buy a coke due to their honesty.

There is really no way to function anymore without the Internet. That's like saying you don't like your electric bill, so may as well cancel it.

Yeah, I get that.  Sucks.   I don't know where this will take us, but I get that we live in a country that can fuck you sideways if corporate shills want to.   Until everyone who supports those corporations understand collectively they have more power together than any board of directors ever will, we're at their mercy.  Make plans or get butt fucked.  There are some companies that will "do the right thing".  There are some that are very excited about making more money.    Anyone who thinks all these communication corporations will all do right by their consumers is really nuts.  Hopefully there are R&D' departments and actuaries who are running numbers right now in the anticipation of competition that prove lowering their rates will pull more money in by broadening their base.   If not, what can you do?

What competition are you talking about? There isn't any competition. That's the thing, these monopolies are being treated as functioning competitive entities, when they aren't. There is no incentive for them not to raise rates, there is no competition, not real competition. This is how pure capitalism works though, right. The best get to the top and then you rape the consumer.

Good illustration but probably dumb marketing.

Quite possibly true. Just that wading into political stuff rarely ends well for corporations. I really don't care, just making an observation. I've been in a BK maybe twice in the last 5 years and if they throttled my 'net up here anymore it would simply die.
