  • Freedom is in the free market.

    Why should an internet service provider be forced to provide neutral speed between a movie pirating site, and a legit company such as Netflix? Counter to what the comedians who give us our news say, the internet will not be slower as a result. It will be faster for the general user.

  • I like it

    We are Americans and as Americans we have certain rights and privileges and one of those privileges is access to the Internet to express our speech and provide an easy way to access information. That's what net neutrality is and it basically gives us free access to the Internet at. In November the Republican FCC chairman, Ajit Pai announced a plan to repeal Obama era net neutrality rules and they will vote their final decisions on December 14th. The FCC's plan to take down net neutrality is to give cable corps like Verizon to control access to the Internet by deciding to block certain websites to purchase a package or slowing Internet speed bases on what they choose to do. Basically, our rights to express will be blocked if these companies decide to block info that they find disagreeable. The FCC has no right to do this in any way whatsoever. We will never pay just for voicing our opinions or access to information. This is blocking our rights and our freedom because they're giving companies to censor info that they may decide is negative to them or appeal to their own viewpoints. It is time to fight back! The Trump Administration has gone too far! It is time to save net neutrality and we don't have much time. Please take the time to read this and spread the word to everyone you know because this is a matter of freedom. The only thing these greedy corporations want is more money. Anyone who is crazy enough to go along with their ridiculous plan is insane to do it. Keep the word strong and keep the protests live. We will make our voices heard and hope that Congress can overturn this decision in time. Join the fight with other corporations who want to support net neutrality and boycott any provider that is against net neutrality. We the people formed this nation to make our voices heard and we don't care if they ignore us because we will protest even if it takes us forever.

  • Let capitalism do its thing

    The internet is not publicly owned. Internet service providers are free to do as they please, as they are private companies and you are not forced to subscribe to their services. One could argue that internet now has become such a widespread phenomena that its access could be equated with that of free speech, but once again, these are private companies. If there is demand for net neutrality, the free market will provide an alternative.

  • Support Free Trade

    It's funny to read some of the press and listen to the talking heads discuss Net Neutrality. Admittedly, even some from my industry, have this fervent push of a talking point which can be summarized like this: "If we repeal Net Neutrality, the internet as we know it will go to sh*t." I feel compelled to interject on these pundits at times with an "Excuse me?" reaction because this tendency to cry wolf begs one big question.

    What did the internet look like before Net Neutrality? Exactly like the same one we enjoy today.

    It was the same net which allowed AOL and Yahoo and Google to spawn, competing on a field of feature sets and ways to make our digital lives easier to manage. It was the same net which allowed us to make endless piles of data available to all fingertips, and one which IBM claims an overwhelming amount of this data (90 percent) was created only since 2016. This same net fostered the near universal adoption of Email as a global standard, along with Voice over IP (VoIP), and the ability to spin up what seems to be almost Anything-as-a-Service (XaaS).

    This same pre-Net Neutrality timespan allowed online gaming to go from novelty to worldwide phenomenon. It allowed social media to move from something that was only cool for college students to a category which has spawned Facebook and numerous other clones. This period saw newspapers and magazines have their web presence go from pure accessory to absolute necessity. Online banking, investment trading, shopping and endless other web-first entities were all able to find an audience and mature into the staples of daily life they are considered today.

    And over this same exact period, we went from (now mocked) 56K dial up being the sole way to get online -- to where we now have dizzying mediums of cable, fiber, DSL, ISDN, T3, Point to Point Wireless, and cellular options all competing for subscribers, offering better overall speeds than we could have ever have imagined just 20 years back.

    How about Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Palm, and all the other mobile platforms of yesteryear? Yep, they too benefited and simultaneously helped foster the adoption of all things web we enjoy on the go. And now we have the Amazon Alexas, the Google Assistants, and Microsoft Cortanas of the world pushing the edges of AI, powered by the same internet, no thanks to any Net Neutrality.

  • Take the power away from the people

    Hello everybody, it's your friendly neighborhood rich corrupt business owner. I can't believe America is still trying to oppress us, with these "rules" and "regulations". We built the foundation of this country, and we should control what the people do. I mean, we already do, BUT WE SHOULD HAVE EVEN MORE POWER. Guys, I promise if you give my company a little more mula, I can make debate.Org NOT impossibly slow, and maybe then my little boy can have a yacht like he always wanted. When I'm not working with the Illuminati shadow government to figure out how to implement mind control, I'm browsing the internet, mining bitcoin (whatever that is), and investing. I mean COME ON people, we leave clues everywhere!

  • Business need this (8

    We need money and companies like money right if they have money the economy has money if we tax companies for this we get money with this money we get out of debt if we are free to do whatever and yeah it is great also this is a joke speach tbh so yeah its all good

  • It’s unfair for all people.

    This is unfair we don’t need taxes for the internet. The government should not be controlling everything. I wish I knew whose idea this was so I could tell them it’s unfair. Net neutrality would raise taxes and for lower income families taxes are already hard enough to pay at all.

  • Yes they should

    It means consumers will demand more and better broadband as they enjoy new lawful Internet services, applications and content, and broadband providers cannot block, throttle or create special "fast lanes" for that content. The FCC's Open Internet rules protect and maintain open, uninhibited access to legal online content ... Ok

  • The FCCs decision to repeal Net Neutrality is good.

    Capitalism will do its thing. A new internet service provider that follows the former Net Neutrality rules will quickly rise and will easily be one of the top ISPs in the nation. If the other ISPs don't adapt and go back to Net Neutrality then they will fall, inevitably so.

  • Capitalism, Free Market, and Competition

    Net Neutrality is simply another form of the government attempting to take away freedoms from Americans. By realing Net Neutrality, this will allow a much more free and open internet market. It will not only allow the rich, but privately and in the business world, to purchase faster internet, it will allow the poor or financially challenged, again both in the private and business sector, to be able to purchase less. For example, take a poor man/woman working at a fast food restaurant for minimum wage. This person wants to move up in life, so they've applied to several higher pay jobs are are waiting for the emails for follow-up interviews. However, they don't have the money or the need to pay for a high speed plan. Without Net Neutrality, they can go out and purchase a low speed plan that would be more than adequate to cover the limited internet usage required for email and other small daily browsing. On the other end of the spectrum, corporations and the rich will be able to purchase much higher speeds. This will cut down significantly on server crashed due to websites such as Netflix. The only reason corporations such as Google, Netflix, Twitter, etc. are against the repeal of Net Neutrality is that it will force them to pay more for higher speeds to keep up with the competition. On the over exaggerated matter of companies throttling the websites of competitors, competition itself will take care of this. If something of this nature did occur, it would come out in the public eventually. Whether from government commissions keeping tabs of the ISP's or from the private sector, it will come to light. The moment the ISP hears rumors of something like that going public, they will immediately stop that practice or risk losing both customers and consumer trust.

  • People will take advantage

    Corrupted businesses will take advantage of this! They'll most likely make it so nothing but their stuff will load, paying fees to look at websites? Wth is this? Yes freedom and stuff but would we really be free? Companies will take advantage that's why we need this! Net neutrality keeps them from controlling us.
    The internet. Is literally my life, i use it all the time. To get info on things i need, what happens when your unable to see what you need to? Internet based companies might get blocked from going on their websites

    don'd do dis *^*

  • If net neutrality is repealed, then corrupt companies WILL take advantage of the average U.S. citizen

    Net neutrality is something the world needs. It's there to make sure that corrupt corporations don't get any more power over citizens than they already do. They should NEVER repeal net neutrality, cause once they do, the corrupt companies WILL take advantage of the average U.S. citizen. They WILL slow down ALL of your internet, and they will charge you massive fees to get normal speed for certain websites. I'll ask you, do you really want to pay extensive extra money for something that should be free?

  • Is this what a free country stands for?!

  • No No No!

    Net neutrality is a very serious matter. This involves the security of an individuals internet browsing rights. That said, giving the government access to your information and giving them the authority to use your internet history against you is illogical. Net neutrality was instilled because the people need rights that protect their browsing rights. If telemarketers and cellphone providers have access to your browsing history, they can start to use you as a target for higher costs and more frequent phone calls. This can only be negative. For example, if I use Netflix four times a week and my friend, whom we'll refer to as A, uses Netflix 7 times a week, his internet history will appear as an outlier to these companies. They will start to charge higher prices for these simple services. A will then proceed to switch plans, which will only cause an uprising with all cellular companies. The speed of the network is not what is concerning most people. Rather, it is the question of the security that these people will have when browsing the internet. The next time they log on to their phones and open up a search engine, they will be forced to stay conscious about what they can and cannot search.

  • The startups and the small guys, those who are just starting out

    Will be incapable of paying the fee so that their content can be seen. ISPs will be able to restrict access, and those small startups? Gone. Dead. Never seen again, even if it was a great idea. Don't listen to politicians. Listen to the average guy, who wants to get his idea out there.

  • Net neutrality is needed

    Since his outrageous and weak decision to repeal "net neutrality", the American people are furious because removing it means that corporations have more power on decisions, forcing users to use up all their money in order to gain access. This is appalling because at a time where free Internet is one of the key components in democracy, this decision is abhorrent and disgusting. If there's one thing to do in order to overturn this sickening decision, Ajit Pai must resign and face criminal charges because he ignored the wishes of the majority, despite overwhelming petitions and numerous calls, clearly that he doesn't represent the people.

  • Ajit Pai is simply too gay to make a good decision

    Ajit Pai is simply the gayest man on earth. His face is so easily punchable; its as if he was born to be punch. He is a corporate shill and gay. His overlord trump is also gay ,that is the truth being gay should disqualify people from being in the goverment.

  • Absolutely not. Ajit Varaj Pai js merely a corporate lackey.

    I am appaled that over 43% OF the debate squad here supports pai. Dont you see that once the rules are gutted, the big corporations like verizon and comcast will be free to manipulate the internet as they wish? Besides,3 UNELECTED REPRESENTATIVES were paid to ignore the will of the american people,which comprises 83% supporters of NN,and even after all the PROTESTS,threats by anonymous,and even a homb plot dared to proceed with the repeal. But as long as we get congress on our sode,the war is not over.
