Default Net Neutrality

So as we all know, it has been repealed. Thoughts? I want to hear other opinions before I share my thoughts.

The one thing Trump has done so far that I disagree with 100%. I'm glad we have net neutrality enshrined in law in the UK (or rather, in the EU, but the law will be converted to British law when we leave the EU, this is already decided).

I've listened to the arguments in favour of repealing net neutrality and I remain unconvinced. People say that Twitter and Facebook already censor what you can view (to an extent), which is true, but repealing net neutrality won't stop that, it'll just mean your ISP is deciding what you can and can't view on top of other giants like Facebook and Twitter. It's just another level of censorship.

Another argument is that the internet was fine before net neutrality, it wasn't needed. Yeah, but we're talking about the early days of the internet. Vastly different times now. Hugely different. Bigly.

Furthermore, the US doesn't have the choice of providers like we do in the UK/Europe. Over here, even if they repealed NN, there is such a huge choice of ISP's that it would be easy to find one who gave a net neutrality-like package for the same price as before. A lot of people are gonna get seriously screwed by this and is seriously gonna hurt Trump's reputation with younger people who are heavy internet users (as most younger people are, up to the age of 30).

I'm in very strong favor of net neutrality.

All I can say is IMHO, corporate America was dancing after this ruling today.
Expect to get less service for more $$$.. Just like they like it.
Profits Profits..

That's the way I see it. They say that the ISP's will compete for customers which will lead to better service but it's not going to work like that.

People NEED the internet. It's an absolutely crucial part of our modern lives, so the ISP's know that no matter how shit they treat their customers they're still going to buy some kind of package because they need it.

The only things that are going to happen with this are:

1. People are gonna get a shittier internet
2. Gonna pay more for it
3. Providers are gonna make a fuckload more money
4. Gonna hurt Trump's repuation among young people badly
5. Gonna be re-instated as soon as he's out of office

This is a fuckup and a big one. On Breitbart I see in the comments that most people support the repeal of NN simply because liberals want to keep it. That's lunacy.

The net is a platform..it sends packages of information from one place to another..the founder wanted every package treated equally..so if you had a website with 4 users your packages were treated exactly the same as one with 4 million..ISP`s?..If you dont like them..change..if google is fucking with yer..dont use it..
Net neutrality is not understood by most..they take what the big corps have told them as gospel..whereas its the big corps that NEED to get rid of net neutrality so they can profit more..The decision affects the whole world..our internet comes through US cable..which can be fucked with..so even in countries that aint done what Yankland are doing will be fuckered..i blame this totally wank bipartisan political drivel that the US has..where people are being forced to believe you are with us or against us..liberals/democrats/rebublicans..all full of shit..just be human ffs.

Thats the gist..i think of Haydens speech on it last night...

Bad for the big dot com companies like amazon google netflex, cause it'll cost them more.
Good for the ISPs, big and small, cause they can charge companies by a scale of access and speed. Also revenue to upgrade tech and expand access.
Neutral for the end-user consumer. since ISP business is very competitive, and these companies want to get and keep consumers, so prices won't go up much, may even go down for some.
The big problem is how the large ISPs, like comcast ATT/Bell etc., scale their access rates, and how the smaller companies respond.

Yeah... not buying it. Massive corporations are not known (these days, if ever) for being fair to their customers. They're known for wringing every penny they possibly can out of their customers. Especially American massive corporations.

If it all works out fine and dandy for internet users I'll be very happy and I'll admit I was wrong all along but I really don't see it. I see ISP corporations making mega money and internet users getting bent over.
