Keep net neutrality

Net neutrality regulations are designed to ensure the unfettered flow of online content.

The FCC will soon vote to kill net neutrality. This is problematic because there are Internet service providers (ISP) that own media companies. Killing net neutrality would allow ISPs to slow speeds for rival companies, or even charge extra to allow access to rival media/entertainment outlets (“Choosing sides in the fight over net neutrality,” Nov. 17).

I live in Baltimore. Comcast has a monopoly over Internet service in my area. Killing net neutrality would grant Comcast the power to directly dictate the information and entertainment to which this city would have access. This is not how democratic capitalism should work.

We cannot allow the repeal of net neutrality. I support Title Two net neutrality rules, and I urge you to oppose the Federal Communications Commission’s plan to repeal them. The wealthy should not control access to information over the middle and lower classes.
