  • 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 makes the least sense to do so.

    Why would you want your internet provider to control what information you see and what websites you can go to? Like it makes no sense no one wants this. Especially with how widespread the internet has become you basically need to use the internet now to live in the 21st century. Why someone would want to get rid of a free and open internet? I don't know, maybe some kind of mental disorder. It literally adds NOTHING to the public.

  • 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.

  • 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?!

    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.

  • We need net neutrality

    What if you have a favorite website that doesn't own a internet company, as soon as net neutrality is repealed, internet companies could completely slow down connection and force clients to pay money for some thing that was free. Ajit Pai speaks for the rich people, not for the people.

  • Just.. No. Please, no.

    Taking away net neutrality is just asking for big corporation fat cats to abuse it to hell and back. It would flatten any company unable to pay whatever stupid fees ISPs demand, and paves the way for mountains of bias. Not to mention that ISPs could destroy any company they don't like and censor anything they don't want the public to see.
    Finally... My biggest concern.
    If net neutrality gets repealed, sites like 4chan will inevitably be throttled.
    That will result in a massive drop in the amount of dank memes going around the internet, the only known repellent of the internet's biggest enemy: normies.
    Losing dank memes will cause a HUGE spike in the amount of normies on the internet.
    That is a future I don't want to live through. Let's keep the internet open and weird.

  • It is better this way

    This means that we will have to pay more for the same service for a different speed Just watch burger kings whopper neutrality video I want to put my opinion out here dont have time for anything aelse this was just for fun holy crap 50 words is a lot

  • 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.
