Got a tech question or want to discuss tech? Weekly /r/Technology Tech Support / General Discussion Thread Today /r/Technology is going to #BreakTheInternet to save net neutrality Ajit Pai has personal financial interests in ending net neutrality Ajit Pai claims net neutrality hurt small ISPs, but data says otherwise. Roughly a million FCC comments were fraudulently filed using real names and half a million additional comments were filed from Russian email addresses. Meanwhile, 50,000 real FCC consumer complaints are missing. ‘Father Of The Internet’ Skewers FCC: ‘You Don’t Understand How The Internet Works’ Five Republicans have opposed the FCC’s plan. We need to convince the rest of them. Republican senator calls on Congress to pass law protecting net neutrality FCC commissioner trolls Ajit Pai with net neutrality ‘suggested edits’ If the FCC Kills Net Neutrality, Expect Fewer Great Startups First Republican Congressman Demands FCC Delay Net Neutrality Vote The Folks That Built The Internet Tell The FCC It Has No Idea How The Internet Works Maloney Introduces Bill To Save Net Neutrality - “A Hudson Valley congressman has come up with a bill to save the internet from the FCC's proposed rollback of Net Neutrality rules.” More Republicans in Congress criticize FCC’s net neutrality plan Congress has set out a bill to stop the FCC taking away our internet. PLEASE SPREAD THIS AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. Ajit Pai offers no data for latest claim that net neutrality hurt small ISPs 200 people + Adam Savage protest for Net Neutrality outside Senator Mitch McConnell's office. An internet that is exposed to censorship is NOT not the real internet. Are we really going to allow ISP's to extort consumers with roadblocks and give them arbitrary discretion to censor internet content? FCC Plan to kill net neutrality rules could hurt students One Congressman Has a Last Ditch Effort to Save Net Neutrality The FCC and FTC announce partnership to watch the Internet burn 'Father Of The Internet' Skewers FCC: 'You Don't Understand How The Internet Works' Europe Has a Message for Americans on Net Neutrality: I’m France’s top internet regulator. And I fear the FCC has not considered the full consequences of altering the open web.
