Internet and Tech Pioneers Attack the FCC’s Net Neutrality Repeal

Posted by at 1:55 pm on December 12, 2017

Tech pioneers and founders of the Internet are fighting the FCC’s efforts to end Net Neutrality with a new letter that says:

You don’t understand how the internet works.“*

Internet founders including Tim Berners-Lee and Vint Cerf are among the 21 people who signed Monday’s letter, which calls on Congress to cancel the upcoming net neutrality vote.

Repealing the net neutrality rules represent an “imminent threat to the internet we worked so hard to create,” the pioneers say in their letter.

“It is important to understand that the FCC’s proposed Order is based on a flawed and factually inaccurate understanding of internet technology”

The FCC is scheduled to end the protections on Thursday in what will likely be a partisan 3-2 vote.

 

* We here at ToT, think they know exactly what they are doing and  don’t want an Internet that could challenge the power of their political backers
