The FCC is expected to vote Thursday on a plan that would dismantle regulations put in place by the Obama administration that requires all internet traffic be treated by service providers equally. Net Neutrality supports our freedom of speech.

With the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) slated to vote on Chairman Ajit Pai's plan to kill net neutrality on December 14, open internet advocates and free press groups participated in planned protests on Thursday at congressional offices and more than 700 Verizon stores in all 50 states, plus D.C. If one were to take note of the ever-increasing rate at which innovations have been made in social media, smartphone apps, and computing, then how could one say that the very regulations that keep the internet open are a detriment to progress?

Democrats wary of House colleague's effort to impeach Trump
Mueller complete his full investigation rather than engage in what would essentially be a public relations stunt", said Rep. The House has overwhelmingly voted to kill a resolution from a Democratic lawmaker to impeach President Donald Trump .

The biggest protest in the nation was at the Verizon store on 42nd Street between 6th and 7th Avenues. The organizer of the Redding protests, Valerie Anderson, asked people to call Congressman LaMalfa and express concerns about the pullback from net neutrality. The new chairman of the FCC, Ajit Pai, is a former top lawyer from Verizon, and the company itself spent millions on lobbying for the end of Net Neutrality. Ending net neutrality could allow ISPs to intentionally slow down or block certain websites, giving priority and faster speeds to content providers who pay for it. These net neutrality rules were passed in 2015, and have broad support from groups ranging from civil liberty organizations to internet giants like Google. Without Net Neutrality, certain web sites could be blocked from users, cable and phone companies could create "fast" and "slow" lanes based on payments, and you would be paying substantially more if you wanted to enjoy the same level of Internet that you now use. If net neutrality ends, "we're paying more for less".

It is ironic that advocates for the repeal of net neutrality claim that it amounts to government regulation of the internet.
