Why would you want to get rid of it?

Not trying to be evasive and avoid the discussion, but I've typed all this over and over again for folks who don't understand the arguments. So read the thread on this meme, and if you have any questions or want me to clarify something just ask.

Don't get me wrong, I'm conservative, I see some very harmful effects that internet providers can do. They can charge$10extra for fb, netflix, whatever they want, there is no competition. There are not enough internet providers for competition to exist. Internet providers cannot be small businesses, thru need to be huge. Is just not possible

Service providers either change or become obsolete when the customers want something better. Look at how cell phones and telecommunication providers have advanced over the years, and how few people under 30 even have a land line (for the phone) to their house anymore.

I think internet service will be fine in the long run. ISPs now have to be up front with their practices so the customer sees what they are getting or going to be paying for, so people will be able to choose what they want. If one provider doesn't provide what they want for what they want to pay, entrepreneurs will see the need and want to fill it. I am willing to go through a short time period of "market adjustment" to have less government involvement and more choices. I don't use Netflix, so why should I buy a "plan" or service that causes me to pay for it?

There are not enough companies to have competition. I fear the big companies will monopolize it, just like Opec

You're not pay I g any extra for Netflix , nor are you paying extra for anything now. What I'm saying is you'll be paying extra to visit imgflip bc at t, or cox, or century link can charge you extra bc they don't own imgflip

I am saying that "plans" will be made for streaming services like using Netflix or Hulu and some "plans" will be for basic streaming content like YouTube and web browsing like Imgflip. I don't think ISPs will be able to deny certain websites because "they won't pay them money." I think that is fear mongering.

Well, if we govw them power to block certain site, what's stopping them from doing so? What if they block fox news? What if they block the drudge report? They could control what we see like North Korea

Big companies already censor and block content already. FB blocks content their "community" deems offensive. Their "community" is people who don't have to go on pages and see the content in the first place, but it gets blocked for people who want to see it.
I'm not worried about ISPs denying access to certain sites. Even if that did happen and were legal, other providers will fill in.

I used the internet before the middle of 2015 when NN actually went into practice and I don't remember any difference. I can't really tell that my internet service got any better over the last two years either. So I'm not worried. I'm optimistic that internet service will get better when more competition enters the market because they won't be "regulated" as to how they have to sell their services.
There are some others out here in the interwebz that don't listen to the overreacting media and politicians.

It's only going to affect gamers and the quality of your YouTube. Currently every one gets the same speed internet. Prior to NN you had to pay extra for the current speed. You're going to notice the difference when you have to renew your contract and get slower internet for the same price.

What if I get to pay less money for a "package" or "plan" that caters to my usage! I don't use all internet services.
What if "slower speeds" will only last for a while until the mark adjusts and more ISPs enter the market place?

You can already do that. The difference is when you pay less with the new plans not only will you be getting less data, you're going to get less speed too.

Very optimistic, not very realistic. I suppose you thought people would be living on the moon by 2000 as well.

If it doesn't get better, even if it gets worse, I don't think it will last long. But I doubt that will happen.

the only reason for ending net neutrality is so bigger corporations can make more money, they don't give a f**k about anyone

What shield was in place prior to 2015 before NN was implemented? Something had to keep the "greedy internet service providers" from throttling, blocking, and extorting websites and companies then, right?

What i think is funny is that people say it will help small buisnesses and that it would be good to take it away. Some people like yoirself cannot possibly grasp or comprehend that it will effect the entire world because the internet is global. Is it because your brain is to pea sized that you can't learn the fact, or is it because your blind to the fact that this nation is becoming a plutocracy. Pne more thing, i bet you'll have to google that word, plutocracy I mean

Maybe you don't recognize that the internet is already a plutocracy controlled by conglomerates and monopolies like Google, Facebook, etc. who were vociferously and hypocritically against the repeal of NN because they don't want other companies to have a say in their monopolies on information.

If you don't realize already, I'll tell you. They can now control the media on a larger scale than before.
