They tried that with a GOP controlled congress already and it ended up failing because good people put up a damn good fight.

And considering Trump's agenda, he's never once spoken about the internet in that way, other than increasing cyber security, which doesn't require having anything to do with Net Neutrality as far as I can tell.

I think we are pretty safe on that aspect of all this for now.



He just appointed the most vocally opposed critic of Net Neutrality as CHAIRMAN of the FCC...

Trump's FCC may try to roll back net neutrality. Here's why that matters

You can research his appointee (Former Verizon Legal Counsel)...but he is the ANTI-Net Neutrality mouthpiece ever since it passed.

Not looking good.

The only freaking regulation that Gov't accidentally let get through that actually benefited the consumer because of their lack of foresight was net neutrality principles.

The Federal Communications Commission's new Republican leadership has rescinded a determination that AT&T and Verizon Wireless violated net neutrality rules with paid data cap exemptions. The FCC also rescinded several other Wheeler-era reports and actions.

The FCC's Wireline Competition Bureau also sent a letter to Comcast closing an inquiry into the company's Stream TV cable service, which does not count against data caps.

What a coincidence The new head of the FCC worked previously for Verizon.

This Ahole and the republicans are about to kill the internet as we know it , and give back control to the Big Corporations and the Gov't.

Horrible Pick on Trumps part

Yep , this guy is a lobbyist wet dream.

Once Comcast ,Verizon, and ATT gets full control of the internet and Customers will realize how bad of a decision this was it will be too late.The Democrats will get back control likely cause of this, assuming they are able to come to their senses and STFU about stupid little things like Trump flying to be with his wife on the weekend .

The S will hit the Fan once the consumers have to pay too access websites that are not in their fast tear web package. The internet will become like television where you have to pick packages and small websites and conspiracy websites will be silenced and purposely slowed down to a crawl.

Yup. Just another case of Trump keeping his promise to look out for the little guy.

A nice write up in the LA Times about AT&T and how the rich will have superfast fiber optic internet while the poor get the slowest DSL. Berkeley economists looked at the numbers and noticed this trend. Not what they had in mind when forcing an upgrade to high-sped internet. Net neutrality is also pointed out. Seems like it is not needed if you can't access the internet.

When left to private companies, much of the public gets short changed AT&T's rollout of broadband serves the rich, shunts mid- and low- income families to the slow lane.

Money talks, BS walks. Sorry to be blunt, but we live in a world where money is exchanged for time and talents and, if you're unwilling or unable to provide the time or talent, you shouldn't get the same rewards as those who are.

Even if the tax payers are the ones paying for the upgrade through national taxes??

We'll work on reading comprehension at some later date.
