Ohio is hosting a demonstration to show FCC that the citizens are not in favor of the FCC’s Restoring Internet Freedom law. Net neutrality advocates will gather today at Rep. Jim Jordan’s office in 3121 W. Elm St. in Lima at around 5:30 in the afternoon.
Assembly organizer Kerry Bush said, “Net neutrality allows individuals to access internet content equally, regardless of the source. Without it, large corporations can pay to have their data load faster, while the data of small businesses and everyday people are slower to load and may even be blocked.”
The convention is made possible through the support of Allen & Hardin for Election Action & Democracy (AHEAD).
Meanwhile, proponents of the unfettered and open Internet in Kentucky are doubling their efforts to save the open internet rules before the FCC’s Restoring Internet Freedom law took effect next month. KY Attorney General Andy Beshear is one of the more than 20 attorney generals who filed against the federal agency. He said that net neutrality is favorable public policy.
Rural Broadband Policy Group coordinator Marty Newell mentioned that the FCC’s Restoring Internet Freedom law would provide edge providers unrestricted maneuver to block or slow down Internet service.
FCC chief Ajit Pai justifies that net neutrality measures are not needed and disadvantageous. He added that Restoring Internet Freedom law would push modernization and capitalization aside from enforcing ISPS to reveal their practices.
However, still many oppose the FCC’s Restoring Internet Freedom law. Even if they disclose their procedures, they will still block contents and slow down access to websites they are not affiliated with.
The Decenternet network does not block and throttle contents or even employ paid prioritization. All apps and websites are treated equally and the connection is not altered. The system it uses is developed to secure and protect information keeping the personal data confidential.
