    Sorry i'm a little late to the game.

    Before everyone forgets, last time we had an Open Form for Net Neutrality an issue came up. Over 60% of the letters received came from one company. This caused the FCC to initially state that we overwhelmingly opposed Net Neutrality. It took us the people getting pissed at that statement for the FCC to investigate and backtrack and give us what we wanted. I doubt an FCC headed by Ajit Pai will do a second take if we dislike the ruling.
    My solution, I suggest we send more than one comment each, if allowed. Spam them, don't let our voices be squelched out a second time. If they did it once they can do it again, we need to prevent this.

    Quite a dishonest representation of net neutrality.

    If you are interested in an intelligent explanation of anti-net neutrality, please read nobel prize recipient Gary Becker's article:

    https://www.researchgate.net/publication/228199403_Net_Neutrality_and_Consumer_Welfare

    It may not convince you, but it will present the view point without logical fallacy, lying, and manipulation. I implore you to not rely on a comedian, a large coffee mug, and 3 strawman arguments to persuade you one way or the other.

    You Americans should stop buying your internet from Verizon, the USA wants to become what it was before Theodore Roosevelt became the USA president in the late 1890s, a nation where big companies ruled, paid employees the least possible, and stopped smaller companies from rising.

    What really saddens me is that most non-Americans(i.e. Europeans, Latin Americans, etc.) I've spoken to don't give two shits what happens to us, and think we deserve it. What they don't seem to understand or comprehend is the fact that this could very easily set a precedence for other countries to follow suit. And what's the next step after this? Will things like SOPA and PIPA get resurrected? Because if that happens, then those WILL have a direct affect on other countries. I know people think Americans are arrogant(as far as I'm concerned, most of humanity is), but this isn't about that. Like it or not, the US is in a position as a world power that could easily set trends in other countries with its laws and regulations. And with websites such as Google/YouTube, Bing, Yahoo, and so many more being based in the US, these laws could potentially affect those websites for EVERYBODY.

    Look, I get it. Giving a shit about what happens to someone in a country that isn't your own(or hell, often times, even within your country)is really hard. But you gotta open your eyes and see the bigger picture here. We've already seen ridiculous things like this happen before. As I mentioned above, SOPA and PIPA were a thing just a few short years ago. Do you really want to see something like that happen again? Just because you're not American doesn't mean your government hasn't and won't try the same things. Just look at Australia, for example. Violent video games are pretty heavily censored there(according to the people that I have spoken to that live there plus the research I've done), and there are a lot of games that are forbidden from ever being sold there. Australian adults are basically treated like they are incapable of determining what is and isn't okay for them to witness or experience in the confines of their own homes when it comes to entertainment media. Or in Germany, which, according to what I have read and heard, similar laws are in place regarding violence or the depiction of the Nazi party in video games. I will fully admit I don't know the full story to that, but as I said, according to everything I've read and heard from people that live there, they're kind of strict about that stuff.

    The point I"m trying to make is, this is wrong on so many levels. And as a human being, I think you owe it to yourself and your own personal liberties, as well as those of your fellow man, to put a stop to such bullshit. I mean, if nothing is done about this, what is stopping us from becoming the next China or North Korea in terms of freedom?

    In the comment I sent to Pai, I implanted every example of Net Neutrality violations and warned him that if he disregards it, he has proven that he does not care about the American people.
    This article has confirmed that it is indeed the case.

    Trump's obsession with undoing everything Obama did in his 8 years has hit the height of madness with Ajit Pai and his ridiculous idea that undoing Net Neutrality will "help boost business, innovation and competition". Dem or Republican, religious or atheist - none of that shit matters if a handful of companies get to dictate how fast or slow your favorite sites work. It's called an oligopoly and it never helps out consumers. Think back - the same BS was said when the housing market was deregulated. We were told 'banks would never take advantage of consumers and the market will create growth'...while the reality showed it ultimately causing a global crippling recession based on the greed of a handful of large banks. Have we learned nothing from past mistakes?!
    Put aside petty differences and for once people need to unite against this madness. The internet is fair and balanced as it is! Fox News and MSNBC can equally attack and insult each other based on current rules - neither has an unfair advantage and their growth is based on how good they are at what they do, versus who pays more for internet speed. Without Net Neutrality, we would STILL have MySpace and Netscape as the industry leaders instead of Facebook, Twitter and Google who brought in innovation as previous small start-ups on an EQUAL playing field. Now. why innovate when you can simply outspend others. Ajit Pai - one man - is about to destroy freedom in a way we never believed was possible! I enjoy the fruits of capitalism as much as the next person, but there is a line to how far we let things go before capitalism cannibalizes the larger society for profits. Some people like Pai don't get that and that is SCARY!

    I believe net neutrality should be reversed. Before the law was passed, I had multiple ISP's to chose from. So when my 480p YouTube video was constantly buffering, I changed my provider and found that my videos were no longer being buffered. Today I choose the lowest costing plan because it doesn't make any difference since all data needs to be treated the same.

    There's a catch though, my internet is considerably more expensive today than it was 5 years ago. Even for the lowest costing plan.

    I never stream in 1080 or 4k, yet the cost of my internet access has sky rocketed because of everyone else's use. ISP's should be able to charge streaming services like YouTube, Netflix, Twitch, etc. more to compensate for their disproportionate consumption of band with.

    I've noticed that the companies that are most for protecting net neutrality as it is, are the companies that use the most data. they don't want to increase the price of their streaming service to pay their fair share for the internet infrastructure that they use.

      You must realize that your internet speed will slow down and the price will stay the same. Its called throttling, and without title II, there is no one to keep ISPs from doing it.
