FCC Accepts the New Regulations of Net Neutrality

President Obama’s new legislation for how Americans conduct business and how they use the Internet was approved on Thursday. This caused the Federal Communications Commission to set up new regulations regarding what is acceptable on the World Wide Web in America.

The Net neutrality plan was accepted with a 3-2 vote on Thursday, and many citizens were unaware about the set proposal because it was kept in the dark in its final stages.

This new legislation will essentially make the Internet and its providers to act as a public equity. This will make sure that the public’s best interest is in mind, instead of their business plans.

Politicians are saying this new policy will only benefit American citizens using the Internet (essentially everyone in the country). Some are skeptical and believe that this is The White House’s plan to run the Internet and to start limiting the nations use as to what they want to be displayed.

Republican Commissioner Ajit Pai, called the new policy a “monumental shift” to “government control of the Internet.” The commissioner then went on to claim that FCC is giving in to the President’s will. Pai believes that the Internet is fine the way it is and that it isn’t broken and isn’t a problem for the government to solve.

Along with control over the Internet, Pai goes on to state other changes that include, “The order explicitly opens the door to billions of dollars in new taxes,” and is urging those to hear his warning by saying, “Read my lips: More new taxes are coming. It’s just a matter of when.”

Others who are in favor of the new regulations, say that it is in the best intentions to protects its user.

Twitter commented on the subject by standing by the decision stating, “Safeguarding the historic open architecture of the Internet and the ability for all users to ‘innovate without permission’ is critical to American economic aspirations and our nation’s global competitiveness.”
