Overturning Net Neutrality is Bad Business

Net neutrality is a hot topic this week and rightfully so as the future of the Internet is at stake. While most of the dialogue has focused on what this means for consumers, let’s not forget the big losers will be small businesses and independent contractors who will be strangled by an unfair online marketplace.

In short, President Obama’s administration put into place specific protections to ensure equal access to the Internet. Service providers could not speed up, slow down or block content, applications, or the websites you visit. Trump’s administration wants to remove these protections, and his toadies are set to do just that.

The FCC is scheduled to vote on the rule December 14 which would allow powerful corporations to serve their content on “superhighways” while relegating the rest of use to the slow lane. Consumers would likely have to pay separately for reliable email service, streaming, cloud storage, etc. driving up costs and forcing even more advertising on you. It is everything you hate about your cell phone provider plus cable television multiplied by bad service times ten.

Scared? You should be.

This isn’t only about playing your favorite online game or watching movies. It is about how American business communicates. Imagine if you’re on a Verizon service trying to web chat with a customer who uses AT&T, and one or both of these massive corporations decide to slow your conversation and force you to pay for the privilege to conduct business. Now imagine if that conversation was crucial to you earning a living.

And if that doesn’t scare you, imagine being unable to access your work schedule online, apply for a job, or learn a new skill through an online video because you can’t afford the access costs. Or your GPS program is slow when you need to find an Emergency Room nearby. Or being prevented from researching self-treatment because you lost your health care. Or having your customers blocked from accessing your website because you don’t have a pricey subscription to all the primary service providers.

Not sufficiently motivated? Imagine how these new rules will influence future elections. Do you think that you would be able to read this?

I know each week I urge you to get involved, but this is important to our ongoing mission. Please contact Congress, and educate your coworkers and family about net neutrality. We need this victory.

    Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone
    with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Cheers!

    Hello! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I truly enjoy reading
    through your posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the
    same topics? Thanks!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was
    wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
