Thanks for posting. Clearly, this plan will damage the open, unfettered
operation of the internet.

Pai’s plan scraps the legal requirements underpinning Title II regulations
and opens the door to internet slow lanes and monopolies over broadband
And Pai has scheduled a December 14 vote—just three weeks from now—to
approve his plan.
Pai has said that he believes that Big Cable should regulate itself when it
comes to the free and open internet.
*But even with net neutrality rules in place, companies such as Verizon,
AT&T, and Comcast have broken the regulations over and over and over.* In
just two years, the FCC has received more than 40,000 net neutrality
complaints from consumers.2
If Title II protections are allowed to be overturned, we will go back to
the days when Big Cable throttled websites based on what internet companies
paid, blocked traffic to sites that competed with their own services, and
redirected sites without user permission—all with impunity.
