I'm sure we all dislike the idea of losing net neutrality. But what are your thoughts about it? Are you concerned for certain things in particular?
Finding pros to the end of net neutrality was difficult but I did find a few. It would help the economy and open up more jobs for various companies, since they could have more services with website packages, such as cable companies have with channel packages.
On the other hand, it's just plain unfair! Now using the internet, which had previously been named a human right, will be much more expensive. With all of the opposition it's unusual that it passed.
There is open investigation currently underway because it looks like a great number of votes to end net neutrality came from fake accounts, identities, etc. Not to mention the controversy around specific news and propaganda sites being blocked and censored to guide citizens to think a certain way.
Hopefully we can keep the internet neutral for longer than anticipated! But if not, I know I wont be paying extra to use certain sites. I'm sure IcePets wont be affected. But eBay and youtube sure will be!
