The impending Restoring Internet Freedom of the Federal Communications Commission seems to worry the education sector a lot.
For several reasons, the education sector has the right to be concerned. The impending repeal of the federal agency could cause a great impact on schools and libraries that use the Internet. They support the restoration of net neutrality that treats all contents equally.
The reason that the FCC Ajit Pai decided to repeal net neutrality is to give way for capitalization and expansion. However, the education sector debates that providers will have the authority to prefer their contents over others. This, in turn, will create fast and slow lanes resulting in paid prioritization.
During the Monday conference call with the reporters, the K-12 advocacy group mentors from the educator sector condemned the FCC’s decision. They argued that the repeal provide an opportunity for a price hike, more lethargic connection, and decreased innovation for schools and libraries.
State Educational Technology Directors Association director Tracy Week said, “Without net neutrality protections in place, the gaps between the schools who have access to resources and those who do not will only widen.”
Internet in Dairy Farms
Not only the education sector is worried about the repeal but the dairy farmers in New Hampshire as well. It could be surprising to know that even dairy farms rely on internet service. They use it to handle records and approach markets.
Stonyfield’s Organic and Sustainable Agriculture director Britt Lundgren said, “They need that technology to manage their business, just the same way that a startup in Silicon Valley needs that technology.”
Stonyfield representatives are disturbed that ISPs will begin imposing higher fees for website and services access.
At the Decenternet platform, users do not have to pay more just to access different websites and services that they need. It provides them unfettered and boundless access to both decentralized and centralized network.
