    Basically wireless providers can restrict access, and wired access must remain neutral, with a bunch of loopholes of course. However, the FCC won't enforce much of the restraints set upon the companies.

    Pornography, gossip and commercialism was supposed to turn the internet into an international spider web trapping a billions of minds and giving governments more control over their citizens than ever before. That's why the military (DARPA) gave it to us. They never expected economic empowerment through epidemic internet marketing, Black Hat, social empowerment and self empowerment on a bigger scale than ever before! Now they are desperately back pedaling. The internet is the balance of power as far as technology and finance is concerned. :grouphug:

    I just heard about it passing. Does this mean they'll be about to take down sites easier?

    While ever governments exist which will be forever Joe Public will suffer

    It is that basic a government agenda is always loaded to downsize any money or success any individual or individuals make from something independent outside of Government control

    Once a government takes over they share the spoils amongst their own - this is called a democratic process :wt:

    Did any of you read what net neutrality is all about? It seems NO and most of you are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay wrong. And I don't mean read about it on blogs, I mean the actual FCC report. It has nothing to do with censorship so please, relax.

    Damn some people are so brainwashed it is sad. Net Neutrality is a actually a good thing. ISPs don't want it because they want to control what you are able to access, charge more, and give preferential treatment to sites they want.

    This is actually a rare good thing the FCC is doing in promoting Net Neutrality. If Net Neutrality is no more, this will negatively affect much of blackhat marketing.
    No sane online marketer would be against Net Neutrality.

    Right, the FCC is only here to help us.

    Let us know when you wake up.

    So you would have monopolies control what you can do online? That is even worse. At least the cititzens can affect the FCCs...but monoplies you can not. Also you can expect any new ISPs to listen to oligopoly-Monopolistic ISP because new ISPs uses the cables and services of large monoplies like Verizon, nor do they have anywhere near the same resourses.

    Sometimes the government actually do the right things, and not everything in this world is only black or white.

    "Over the last two decades, millions of individuals have contributed to a remarkable expansion of freedom, creativity and commerce on the Internet that has benefited billions of people. For three FCC commissioners, that's a problem. The power to regulate, after all, is the power to control. For control freaks, few things are more tempting than an unfettered Internet."

    So how will millions of individuals still be able to contribute when oligopolies-monopolies have the power to be able to control and affect sites you can view? If they don't like where you visit, they can just block the sites. If they were not oligopolies-monopolies you could just move on, but they own all the resources. The smaller ISPs rent the resources from the larger ISPs, so even they would be under the thumb and rules of larger ISPs.

    How is a oligopolies-monopoly who own all the resources and controlling what you can do, any better than a fear of the FCC? (though Net-Neutrality is not about controlling where you visit)
