Countries Around the World Tackled Net Neutrality in Different Ways

The FCC's move to repeal net neutrality regulations, which stop telecommunications companies from blocking, throttling, or charging for access to websites of their discretion, is just one more step in the direction of corporate control over our every-day lives.

"If the FCC's plan to undermine Title II net neutrality goes through, we will have a corporate-managed internet where it's harder for us to share and access the sort of content that makes the Internet so powerful", Access Humboldt Executive Director Sean McLaughlin wrote in a statement announcing the December 7 protest, held outside the Verizon on Broadway in Eureka.

The FCC will vote on net neutrality next Thursday.

In the United States, debate is raging over how the Internet should be classified and regulated. Without Net Neutrality, certain web sites could be blocked from users, cable and phone companies could create "fast" and "slow" lanes based on payments, and you would be paying substantially more if you wanted to enjoy the same level of Internet that you now use. Companies such as Google and Facebook were only able to reach the level of success that they did because of Net Neutrality.

Several protesters expressed their worry that the fate of net neutrality was being decided in a less than democratic way or that the end of net neutrality would allow political content to be restricted on the internet. "Democrats and Republicans alike are willing to take action against any threat to Net Neutrality rules that protect our online rights". Mr. Owen expects that whatever happens, net neutrality will be ended.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, who is leading the effort to wipe away net neutrality, has said the rules are unnecessary regulation that can stifle innovation.
