THREAD: Why should the FCC's decision to totally repeal #NetNeutrality matter to you?
1/ Today @politico reported that the FCC plans to totally repeal #NetNeutrality rules. politico.com/story/2017/11/…
2/ #NetNeutrality rules prevent internet service providers from favoring or blocking certain websites. It also prevents them from charging you extra based on the content of a website.
3/ Without #NetNeutrality, an internet service provider could sell service that blocked or filtered out websites with views that it disagreed with.
4/ Repealing the rules would also allow internet service providers to charge you extra to get access to the websites you like the most. Want Netflix? Pay an extra $5.
5/ We already have extra charges in everything from airplane flights (extra for food, legroom, or checked baggage) to video games (pay to win). This could do the same for the Internet.
6/ Most importantly, it would allow internet service providers (big corporations) to disfavor websites that they disagree with. The value of the internet is that it is a free zone of information where people who disagree with each other interact. We don't have enough of that.
7/ We are fractured enough, and it's already hard for under-funded views to get their message out. In an age where big media mergers threaten a diversity of views, we need to #SaveNetNeutrality so we can save a free and open internet. /end
