Yes, again.

As if the opposition to SOPA, PIPA and everything else they've cooked up so far wasn't enough of a big 'no, fuck off and die in a fire' to them, some unelected bureaucrats with big cable company money fresh in their pockets are now pressuring the US into completely ending net neutrality. The previous victories of the netizens must've bothered them good enough that they're not even bothering with the usual doublespeak of 'combating piracy' and 'copyright violations' - instead, they're being rather frank with their demands because the creation of 'fast lanes' will profit them on the short term... while heavily taxing every sector of American private and public sectors.

What is net neutrality?

Net neutrality is the principle that Internet providers like Comcast & Verizon should not control what we see and do online. In 2015, startups, Internet freedom groups, and 3.7 million commenters won strong net neutrality rules from the US Federal Communication Commission (FCC). The rules prohibit Internet providers from blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization—"fast lanes" for sites that pay, and slow lanes for everyone else.

Nearly everyone who understands and depends on the Internet supports net neutrality, whether they're startup founders, activists, gamers, politicians, investors, comedians, YouTube stars, or typical Internet users who just want their Internet to work as advertised.

So, what's going on?

Cable companies in America are famous for high prices and poor service. Several rank as the most hated companies in America. Now, they're lobbying the FCC and Congress to end net neutrality. Why? It's simple: if they win the power to slow sites down, they can bully any site into paying millions to escape the "slow lane." This would amount to a tax on every sector of the American economy. Every site would cost more, since they'd all have to pay big cable. Worse, it would extinguish the startups and independent voices who can't afford to pay. If we lose net neutrality, the Internet will never be the same.

In fact, one particularly backpfeifengesicht-able bureaucrat was quoted as 'taking a weed whacker to the FCC regulations'. He must've really wanted that gold-plated shirt.

What can you do about it? Contacting your representatives, sending in letters and excercise your right to democratic representation. That isn't illegal. Yet.
