If you've been listening to the news then you've heard how the internet is under distress from the FCC ( Federal communications Commission ) over how to save net neutrality!
Net Neutrality Ajit Pai (head of the FCC) says is holding us back form true market potential!
The Net Neutrality Debate has been going on for years with internet service providers such as Comcast, Verizon, and At&t trying to remove the regulation rules on ISP's so they can have more power over the internet! Such as speeding up and slowing down service for it's provided!
But is Net Neutrality Over? There is still a fight set to take place and a protest on December 7th before a congress vote on the 14th to repeal the FCC Net Neutrality Rules!
You can go to battleforthenet.com and write your congressman/woman to help save the internet from a certain end! How to save net? How to save the internet? well the answer is to write and act! don't talk only do!
the internet can be saved! it is up to you!
Follow our social media:
Remember, during the Verison protests, don't take your anger out on the employees there. They are just trying to put food on their table, they are not all Ajit Pai here. These are people who are just doing their jobs, and I know that is the same excuse the Nazis used at the Nuremberg trials, but we are not dealing with mass killers in this case. We are dealing with people who have no choice in how to keep their heads above water. Chances are good that many of the store employees there don't agree with Ajit Pai either, and we could use that to our advantage. So let us not cause any more trouble or alienate any more people than necessary while saving net neutrality.
I don't know what I'll do if it happens. I hope it doesn't happen. Because... I don't know. I had been signing a few petitions. I hope that our voices work and the FCC would listen to us in a reasonable matter.
This is going to affect a lot of people like small business owners, and lets not forget students that are going to school, college, and university...and not in a good way! This is one of the stupidest ideas I've ever heard. Ajit Pai is the ultimate computer virus, and ransomware!
Seriously the worst.. Feeling a bit helpless up here in Canada since I cant call up Senator Palpatine and we all know that if something big happened like this in the States, its gonna suck for us Canucks too.
Maybe I should just call someone anyway. "HEY LISTEN HERE! I'M CANADIAN AND I'M USUALLY REALLY NICE BUT THIS IS UPSETTING ME. I ASK YOU KINDLY TO KEEP NET NEUTRALITY. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND SORRY TO BUG YOU" Seems Canadian enough.
Sign this petition to help save the internet by making ajit pai the one who’s trying to take our net neutrality resign.
Share and spread this to help in the fight for net neutrality.
Good news is that Net Neutrality as we know it has only existed for 2 years. The internet wasn't so bad 3 years ago so personally I'm not too afraid. The one good thing about NN being repealed is that it would open the doors for other smaller companies to start selling internet, increasing competition. I'm not saying its a good idea, but I am saying that I don't think its the "Doomsday" that some people want us to think it is. As with most complex issues, there are pros and cons.
This is what will happen if they repeal Net Neutrality!
1. There will be a fee for everything you want to see or access. This means a Fee separate fee for Facebook, YouTube, Netflix, etc.. Just by your ISP. This will above what you pay for the service. (Micro Transactions for everything!)
2. Your privacy will be gone Completely the Government will now spy on you legally.
3. Small business that run on the internet will go out of business since they will not get any traffic to their sites without paying their ISP a fee to get traffic. (They will be Blocked) This will flood the job market with people put out of work. Thousands of companies will go out of business over night. Even GoDaddy and other hosting companies will drastically be affected and might go out of business if thousands of web sites cannot afford the ISP fee to get traffic. (Site Cancelations!)
4. Less IT jobs will be available since large server farms will not be needed as much since many will not be able to afford there service anymore, this means less Shopping, Banking, or the use of any other online services that records need to be kept, like your passwords etc..
5. Prices on everything will go up! Since many will cancel their services since they cannot afford them. The ones that remain with a service will have to bear the cost.
6. It will affect the whole economy, everything from banking online, to Shopping online and even doing things like trading Stock online there will extra fees.
7. You will only be able to go to sites that the ISP redirects you to. If the Web site has not paid a fee to the ISP you will never even know it’s there they will be blocked.
8. Your internet speed will be throttled to very slow speeds unless you pay a hefty free to speed it up. (Might as well go back to dialup!) Extra cost on top of all other fees.
9. No more surfing the net, it will be too costly, it will eat up your data allowance for the month.
10. Gaming with Xbox, PS4 or PC will be prohibitive due to the speeds needed to pay lag free and most that will not be able to pay the fee involved. This will put businesses that support this industry out of business due to people not buying their gear anymore since they cannot use it without lag or have no internet access, and in effect even potentially put companies like EA out of business at some point since most of their games are internet based people will stop buying them since they cannot play them online anymore.
11. Shopping online will decline drastically, No internet no Shopping! Cost will be passed on!
12. You will have NO say in what you can see online, what websites you visit, games you play, interests you have, it will all be governed by if that website can afford to pay ALL the ISP providers a fee to send traffic to them. If they can’t you don’t see it.
13. Your personal information can be and will be sold and spied upon by the ISP the government and anyone else that wants it or buys it.
14. You will not be allowed to view see any information other than what they want you to see. Any other political viewpoints other than there’s will be blocked.
15. You will not be able to go directly to your favorite website anymore if they have not paid their fee to the ISP. They will be blocked and you will be redirected to a site that has paid their fee.
16. Netflix and other will raise their fees to pay the fees they have to, too the ISPs. And you will pay the ISP a fee to have fast enough speed to view shows lag free. So, you will pay twice.
17. Any Company that uses the internet in anyway will have to pay extra fees to get any traffic at all to their sites even the big companies and the cost will be passed down to the little guy.
18. You will be told and controlled what sites you can see and get too since there will be a limited amount of internet sites they approve of or that have paid their fees to get traffic.
19. Total censorship of what you see and watch
Simply put the cost of the internet, for most will be prohibitive, many businesses will go out of business, Cost and fee’s will go up for everyone, It will cost many jobs in the IT and gaming industry, Online Shopping will decline, Banking and trading will decline online, In Effect it will throw us back to the dialup stone age! Unless you pay,pay,pay! And even then, you will not be able to access what you want if they don’t like it!
finally catching up. awesome video ryan and I have heard a lot about this net neutrality and oh dear...I have a lot of American friends and its fun gaming with them. I hope this does get repealed, very interesting subject ryan keep it coming my friend! love your videos.
Damn, you KILLED this man! I actually just made a video talking about the importance of Net Neutrality and what people can do to help. Love these videos...awesome job with the graphics and overall production. New sub!
Man this is crazy! Not only do I think it is a bad idea, I also believe the internet should be free. It is one of the greatest resources of human knowledge ever. It should not be manipulated this way. Loved the video man.
You know I don't normaly comment as i'm a very big lurker... wait that sounds creepy! But just wanted to say, been watching you for ages and i honestly don't think there is a video i don't like! Keep it up bud love your work!
Its a wake-up call!!! These people, in power don't care about us!! they just make money out of us, the book '1984' is just something you should maybe read one day. Great video and points! Keep up the great work.
So pretty much the internet is going to be treated similar to cable? Yeah that's no good at all! And what's worse, they're trying to dress it up like a win-win, when in reality Internet providers and big businesses are gonna be the winners. I can't even imagine the kind of wasteland Youtube alone is gonna turn into if you have to shovel out more money to your isp for monthly access 😩
I think its good as i think people should pay a subscription to watch my quality content!!! Haha JOKES!! If this happens it will be terrible...can you imagine having to pay for your internet like your sky packages...cant view youtube until you buy our entertainment package!!! Ridiculous..but great video man
Ya know.. ok so 1st, Props for always putting a relevant video out and 2nd.. WTF I mean seriously WHAT THE FUCK are goin thru their minds oh wait .. wait Money always comes down to fkin money.. they already took our privacy, we're simply left with the allusion of it.. How much is enough? Answer-it's never enough. How far is to far? Answer-it's never to far. ..and who gets fked the hardest? Answer- TAKE A WILD FKIN GUESS! I could literally write a book on my opinions here but I know you actually take the time to read all comments and we both got shht to do lol But seriously I think Ice Cube needs to update "Fk the Police" and do a follow-up for these Ignorant AssFkinHoles and that's me being kind about all this! #MicDrop
I really hope.. we, the middle class etc.. really all need to, by the millions, need to all unite n honesty figure on what needs to happen! Again, there's so much more to that but I'm sure you understand my point! Ryan.. Ty brother!
They really don’t need any more money. Where I live my AT&T internet is one step above dial-up so if they slow it down I might as well not even have any. I like that you kept some humor all while explaining the seriousness of the situation. 👍 good job
This is a CLEAR attempt at grabbing money and controlling what you do on the Internet. Even if you pay for fast service how many times has it slowed down? They can't guarantee it will be fast 24/7 so it's a blatant lie. This affects everything going to and from America but the rest of the world is powerless to help. Please fight this evil 😈
great vid as always, if they repeal Net Neutrality...RIP all streamers and content creators. Oh your kid wants to do homework online? okay thats an extra 4.99 an hour. WTF COME ON GOVERNMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They are freaking power hungry they are u freaking greedy rich is not enough for them and they don't care about the little people all they think about is taking more money from us and not giving a damn about our own interests
