FCC releases final proposal to end net neutrality

The FCC has released the final draft of its proposal to destroy net neutrality. The order removes nearly every net neutrality rule on the books – internet providers will be free to experiment with fast and slow lanes, prioritize their own traffic, and block apps and services. There’s really only one rule left here: that ISPs have to publicly disclose when they’re doing these things.

The US already has absolutely terrible internet compared to most developed nations, and this will only make it worse. What an absolutely and utterly bad proposal – clearly the result of deep-rooted corruption and bribery among US carriers and the US government.
