The other side of Net Neutrality.

Rosenworcel

Clyburn

In commenting on Chairman Pai’s plan to dismantle net neutrality, Commissioner Mignon Cliburn commented, “[The FCC majority’s] Destroying Internet Freedom Order would dismantle net neutrality as we know it by giving the green light to our nation’s largest broadband providers to engage in anti-consumer practices, including blocking, slowing down traffic, and paid prioritization of online applications and services.”

And Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel chimed in by saying, “Today, the FCC circulated its sweeping rollback of our net neutrality rules.… The Commission now wants to wipe out court-tested rules and a decade’s work in order to favor cable and telephone companies. This is ridiculous and offensive to the millions of Americans who use the Internet every day. Our Internet economy is the envy of the world because it is open to all. This proposal tears at the foundation of that openness. It hands broadband providers the power to decide what voices to amplify, which sites we can visit, what connections we can make, and what communities we create. It throttles access, stalls opportunity, and censors content. It would be a big blunder for a slim majority of the FCC to approve these rules and saddle every Internet user with the cruel consequences.”
