The fight for Net Neutrality is not over yet, in fact, we have been losing it through inattention. It seems like the FCC simply won’t give up about destroying the Net Neutrality rulings we have to protect our freedom. But we can still fight back and make our voices heard, don’t ever doubt that.
The FCC knows its attack on net neutrality is hugely unpopular among the nation’s consumers. That’s why the agency is planning to formally unveil its plan while he nation is distracted by the Thanksgiving holiday and the quest for the perfect cranberry sauce.
Numerous sources indicate that the agency will unveil its agenda to roll back the rules either Wednesday — when much of America is busy preparing for the holiday, or Friday — when much of America is busy shopping. The actual vote to axe the rules will occur December 15.
Obviously, this is concerning, as this attempt by the FCC to masquerade an attack on Net Neutrality is asinine and horrible. This is all done in hopes downplaying the negative media backlash against FCC boss Ajit Pai for what, by any measure, is seen as a grotesque handout to one of the least competitive and least popular industries in America.
You know how far it’s went for these folks. Remember that they tried to make bots advocates for Net Neutrality and everyone managed to see through that. We also found out that they have been spreading fake news about Net Neutrality and how “It’s bad for our nation”. All of them in an attempt to control freedom of speech.
Fortunately for consumers, ISPs and myopic lawmakers continue to underestimate the looming backlash to this effort, and the tidal wave of negative consumer sentiment that will inform telecom and media policy — and voting choices — for years to come. Our stance in pro of net neutrality will continue to be 100% unmovable.
