“Surprise ... the government doesn’t work for us. Follow the money.” “The second they start charging a penny to access anything on the net, I’m gone.” The FCC’s ruling to repeal net neutrality has sparked a spate of outraged comments on Yahoo Newsroom.
On Thursday, The U.S. Federal Communications Commission repealed the 2015 Obama-era net neutrality regulation aimed at ensuring a free and open internet. The controversial plan is a victory for internet service providers like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon, and gives them power over what content consumers can access.
The plan has been opposed by some claiming this could give internet providers too much control over how online content is delivered. One Yahoo reader agrees, writing, “It’s time to stand up and take back our freedoms!”
