Don’t be misled by the media/Silicon Valley hype.
It’s critical that Net Neutrality regulations are not reinstated.
Net Neutrality is a misleading label if there ever was one. There is nothing neutral about it. Under Obama, it was a just another scheme to have the federal government control the Internet through the FCC.
House Republicans in April rolled back “Net Neutrality” rules and freed Internet Service Providers such as Verizon, AT&T and Comcast of unfair and terrible regulations to limit what companies could do with customer data.
President Obama had imposed “Net Neutrality” rules, which brought with them fears of corporate cronyism, Internet censorship, Internet taxes and expansion of the federal bureaucracy.
More and more government intrusion.
We don’t need it!
We don’t need anyone telling us what we can and can’t do on the web.
But there are even major companies that want “Net Neutrality” Obama-era restrictive rules placed back on the Internet.
Support to bring back Net Neutrality reached a peak on the hyped-up July 12 Day of Action.
Amazon, Google, Facebook and others in the tech world joined in. Really?
How about if EVERYONE keeps their hands off the Internet, including the big companies and government?
We don’t need government-defined frameworks, we need free markets, where content and infrastructure discipline one another in the marketplace to benefit all.
Republicans, in their response to Net Neutrality, need to prepare a foundation for economic liberalization. The best bill to introduce would be one limiting FCC power grabs, and reaching out to those proponents gradually realizing Net Neutrality’s misguided principles will ultimately ensnare them, too.
Keeping Net Neutrality from gaining another foothold is crucial for small business owners, startups and entrepreneurs, who rely on the open Internet to launch their businesses, create markets, advertise their products and services, and reach customers.
We need the open Internet to foster job growth, competition and innovation.
No company should be allowed to interfere with this open marketplace.
With misguided Net Neutrality laws, the next Google or Facebook may never get off the ground.
