FACT CHECK: Net-Neutrality Claims Leave Out Key Context

  • FCC Slams 'Desperate' Dems Seeking Delay on Vote to Overturn Obama-Era Rule on Net Neutrality

This could mean that on December 14, if the FCC carries out its vote to reclassify ISPs and kill net neutrality, the internet as we know it will end. "This is an attempt by people who want to keep the Obama Administration's heavy-handed Internet regulations to delay the vote because they realize that their effort to defeat the plan to restore Internet freedom has stalled", FCC spokeswoman Tina Pelkey said via email. Protestors can look up their zip codes to find the planned events closest to them. However, all the internet service providers in America aren't available in every single community.

This repeal could be costly for both internet users and content providers.

Against Me!, Bassnectar, Colin Hay, Atmosphere, the Glitch Mob and Run the Jewels' Trackstar the DJ were also among the signers of the open letter, which argued that killing net neutrality would allow "telecom giants" to monopolize internet access as well as be the arbiters of what is accessible.

"The FCC would simply require internet service providers to be transparent about their practices so that consumers can buy the service plan that's best for them and entrepreneurs and other small businesses can have the technical information they need to innovate", Pai said in a statement.

A potential repeal could mean service providers could choose which websites can be accessed faster, and slow down others.

The FCC is scheduled to vote on the proposal on December 14.

A tweet that shows a supposed glimpse of a future without net neutrality is making the rounds online, but it isn't exactly true.

Relying on the FTC to police net neutrality will be much less effective than the FCC's current regime, Wheeler said. According to Gutterman, they don't really have any incentive to do either - at least not to such an extreme that users would be dissuaded from using cryptocurrencies.

When a person chooses to send cryptocurrency to another person, they do so peer-to-peer - that lack of third-party involvement is one of the benefits of using crypto as opposed to a bank. The internet as a whole could become a tiered entity where the rich have access to all the content at normal speeds, while the poor have to deal with blocked websites and slow loading times. "The Verizon lawyer said, 'I have been instructed by my client that I may say, one of the reasons we are appealing is that we intend to prioritize traffic, '" Wheeler said. While Gutterman said that wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility, it still wouldn't make trading crypto impossible. ISPs will likely be more focused on Google's 28 billion visits monthly or YouTube's 20.5 billion than the relatively paltry 20.4 million visits to Coinbase each month.
