The people won't give up fight for net neutrality

Re When it comes to net neutrality, the FCC mistakenly puts trust in ISPs (Dec. 14): To claim that the internet is not a necessity for daily life and social upward mobility to those living in the modern world is not only a statement of denial, but a lie.

Students as early as primary school are expected to use the web to complete assignments, job applicants are directed to a company’s website first and foremost, and individuals with raw talent can become wealthy in a matter of months with an innovative idea and an open marketplace.

For a nation that fetishizes the rise of the young entrepreneur from modest beginnings in all other forms of media, our lawmakers continue to rule in favor of companies that already have a monopoly over our airwaves and cyberhighway.

Net non-neutrality will be like extra waiting for a dial tone on your telephone unless you buy “premium call initiation”. It will be like having to deliver goods on back roads or pay for “super highway” access. This will hamper competition in many economic markets to allow it on our telephones, roads and Internet.

That’s going backwards. We want uniformly good communication to facilitate fair competition between companies using those methods of communication.
