Rep. Brad Miller NC-13 -- Wrong, Wrong, Wrong on Net Neutrality


According to Brad Miller..

Recent changes in federal regulation and court decisions have altered the legal protections against discrimination in access to the internet. As a result, some internet service providers now see the potential to profit by providing favored treatment to some internet content providers, the same way retailers charge manufacturers for prominent product displays in their stores. Such discrimination among internet content providers would forever change the open, vibrant competition based now on the appeal of internet content and would deny consumers the right to choose internet content freely.

Sorry, Brad Miller, Gov. is not the source of vibrancy. The current vibrancy of the internet is directly related to the lack of government regulation.

Secondly, complaints of disparities in net service seem to be sourced on nothing. Who is complaining outside of those who want to regulate? I have no problems accessing the internet. Do you? If it is financially difficult for an individual to gain access, libraries across the country offer it for free.

We do not need to regulate problems that exist only in the minds of those who wish to regulate.

Fortunately, it has been found that the preferred regulatory agency for the implementation of Net Neutrality, the FCC, doesn't have the authority to do so.

A federal court threw the future of Internet regulations and U.S. broadband expansion plans into doubt Tuesday with a far-reaching decision that went against the Federal Communications Commission.

Currently engaged in a happy dance....
