Deregulation only works in monopolistic markets (like where I live). At best in the US you have oligopolies and in most regions it's just monopolies for fast speed internet. You don't need to try and understand, you just need to read about the cold hard facts.I don't see things as republican or democrat. Perhaps it is you who has always been in 100% agreement with the democrats, even when you know that it is bad.
That is what confuses me, when it is referred to as "Killing Net-Neutrality". I don't understand how people see going back to the way things was as Killing anything. That's like saying giving people freedom is killing freedom.
Like I said before, I'm all for the FCC to move towards deregulation, but only after they adopt laws that help with countering the monopolies that current ISP have created (ironically using your money, money they got from the government). But what happened is exactly the opposite. They made it even harder for competition to happen while also giving ISP all of the power in the world to do whatever they want. Comcast already said they want to do fast lanes and removed "paid prioritization" from their net neutrality pledge. So much for their "promise".
There is no "freedom" for the people, it's the exact opposite. This will only make things worse for the people. It's "freedom" for the select few, not yours.
FCC also removed the rules that forced ISPs to tell you the full cost of the contract you will sign (hidden fess FTW) and details about the data caps (alongside other similar rules because they were too "burdensome" for ISPs).
