Crowder Explodes The Myth Of 'Net Neutrality'
Steven's analogy to the postal service is the most apt in this video. Now, gamers also like to browse facebook or google from time to time, so this company had better devote at least some of their bandwidth to these other companies if they don't want to lose their customers to another company that does all that they do but also offers some bandwidth to those other companies.
Those rules prevented internet providers from blocking and throttling traffic and offering paid fast lanes. The big telecom companies can just say to Google "pay us X or every customer of ours gets throttled to your site". Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai said on Wednesday that he's beginning to roll back net neutrality rules, a process he says will promote competition, create jobs, and give more Americans access to high-speed internet.
The contemplated ruling removes the overhang created by Title II and rightfully reclassifies broadband Internet access as an interstate information service. And the worst point of this is THE GOVERNMENT DOESNT CONTROL THE INTERNET the only thing they control is that isps must treat all traffic equally.
The battle between state governments and federal governments will increase as blue states believe that they are protecting the Internet by reinstating net neutrality regulations. I bet that when google fiber came in, the other ISPs suddenly had to up their game because they knew that consumers with a choice don't have to tolerate the bad service any more.
Furthermore, while the internet is often touted as a free market invention, it was in fact developed through government R&D , and funded by tax payers. And government oversight of internet companies is the reason that there is a lack of competition in the broadband service market.” Government doesn't promote innovation; it promotes tax generation.
Even worse the government could possibly step in and say "hey telecom company, slow down every liberal media outlet and block their content we don't like, but keep convervarive media going." This creates a one sided problem where the powerful decide what the public gets to consume and thus could be used for swaying public opinion.
Many opponents of net neutrality claim that the market will ensure that ISPs don't prevent users from accessing content they'd like because it would make no business sense. As Ben Shapiro wrote in 2014, "Consumers would dump those ISPs in favor of others" if those ISPs slowed down or blocked data as favoritism toward certain sites.
All this Net Neutrality talk is all based on the fact that you think any government is not going to get paid off by 1 company or another, also the fact that some of the largest companies in the world, like google, Facebook and YouTube are pro net neutrality should concern you.
In 2015, interent service providers were able to offer bonus internet content to their consumers and a wide array of certain internet packages. Under the approved proposal , the FCC would do away with rules barring internet providers from blocking or slowing down access to online content.
Internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon were explicitly Steven Crowder Net Neutrality prohibited from speeding up or slowing down traffic from specific websites and apps. The FCC has long been committed to protecting and promoting an Internet that nurtures freedom of speech and expression, supports innovation and commerce, and incentivizes expansion and investment by America's broadband providers.
Also, if you really think about it, Net neutrality doesn't give everybody free equal internet access. Without net neutrality, nothing prevents ISPs from simply introducing their own streaming services and blocking or at least throttling competing services. +HouseHoldAdventures: Net Neutrality has nothing to do with the ISP competition.
