Have we lost the fight for Net Neutrality?
Net Neutrality regulations prohibited ISPs from:
BLOCKING discrimination against any lawful content by blocking websites or apps.
THROTTLING slowwing down the transmission of data because of the nature of the content, as long as it was legal.
PAID PRIORITIZATION creating and providing an internet fast lane for companies and consumers who paid premiums, and a slow lane for those who didn’t.
Hower in July of this year these regulations were repealed.
Andrew Goczkowski a member of Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky’s staff will be speaking with us about the possible ramification of this repeal, the status of the pending lawsuits from 21 states (including Illinois) to block this repeal and what we can do to help prevent a situation where ISP blocking, throttling & paid prioritization runs rampant.
