US Rep Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) released a video over her social media channels raising awareness on the issue of net neutrality and the fundamental reasons why she believes reversing Obama-era regulations would be devastating to the industry and consumers.
“Without net neutrality, internet providers will be able to throttle internet speeds, block websites behind paywalls, unfairly favor some content over others, and charge you extra fees for high-quality streaming,” Gabbard says.
The FCC is scheduled to vote on the issue on December 14.
The IVN team polled Facebook followers last week, and an overwhelming majority voted against the FCC’s current course to eliminate the net neutrality rules in place.
Nearly 3,300 IVN readers said the FCC should not scrap current regulations, but opinions in the comment section where plentiful and diverse.
