Prominent YouTube Creators Speak Out About Protecting Net Neutrality
12 July, 2017, 00:44 | Author: Franklin Nunez
Such "paid prioritization" schemes could give wealthy web companies an advantage over startups and independent sites that can't afford to pay, but with so many internet heavyweights participating in Wednesday's day of action, it's clear that big content providers would rather operate under the FCC's net neutrality protections than pay off broadband companies to hobble the competition. "Big Internet service providers ought not to be able to pick winners or losers". The fear is that premium sites like Youtube would gain access to higher speeds, so why would anyone use anything but?
On Wednesday, Democratic senators Ron Wyden, of OR, and Brian Schatz, of Hawaii asked the FCC to ensure that their computer system would be capable of handling the surge of negative comments that they would receive about the roll back of these rules. A large majority of the comments submitted in the current proceeding support preserving the Title II rules.
But also joining the proceedings are several Silicon Valley giants that, in recent years, have not just been apathetic to genuine net neutrality, but in many instances have actively worked to undermine the concept.

President Donald Trump had appointed India-origin Ajit Pai to head the powerful FCC, the USA communications regulatory agency.The advocacy groups are urging tech companies and others to oppose Pai's plan to gut the net neutrality order which was issued in 2015.
"It's outrageous, and a blatant attempt to confuse the public, that they are claiming they are joining a grassroots online protest that's explicitly meant to defend the Title II based net neutrality protections that people from across the political spectrum overwhelmingly support", Greer said. The deadline for comments on Pai's rules is Monday, July 17.
Pai is one of many Republicans who claim that Title II places companies at a standstill - they say it discourages investors, imposes too much regulation, and prevents competition.
