Internet Pioneers Say the FCC doesn't know What Internet is
13 December, 2017, 03:55 | Author: Kristopher Anderson
A group of early internet and computing pioneers have called on the Senate's FCC oversight committee to censure next week's net neutrality vote.
"Chanting, "Face Reality, We Need Net Neutrality", and holding signs reading, "Say no to corporate control", "#stopthefcc#", "Public Internet is Right", protesters passed out informational flyers to passersby, who were supportive of the action.
The gist of the message is still the same it has been during the last few months, stop and cancel this week's vote to repeal Net Neutrality. The five-seat body is now controlled by a Republican majority, and Pai's plans are expected to be approved with few issues. The 2015 rules bar broadband providers from blocking or slowing access to web content.
Meanwhile, internet experts, pioneers and users are anxious about internet service providers losing oversight and possibly feeling emboldened to throttle, block and censor content and services. The FCC is expected to vote on the measures on 14 December.
The net neutrality rules have broad support from members of the public across the political spectrum, according to multiple polls. The vote on the "Restoring Internet Freedom" order would reclassify broadband internet as an information service - rather than a utility - and eliminate an internet conduct standard the commission now describes as "vague and expansive".
Equally, ISPs could charge customers for access to fast lanes that stream games or movies.
The Net neutrality battle has reached its peak and climax.
Democrat Commissioner Mignon Clyburn called the proposal "legally suspect" and "a giveaway to the nation's largest communications companies", urging her colleagues to "put these drafts where they belong: in the trash heap". "Costs will go up, as ISPs take advantage of monopoly power to raise rates on edge providers and consumers alike".
