Future of “net neutrality” in question under Trump


CALL TO ACTION WEEK. DAVID MCKAY, 22NEWS. SEVERAL SENATE DEMOCRATS MET TODAY TO OPPOSE ANY FEDERAL PLANS TO STOP NET NEUTRALITY. 22NEWS REPORTER ALESSANDRA MARTINEZ JOINS US LIVE TO EXPLAIN WHAT “NET NEUTRALITY” IS, AND HOW IT AFFECTS YOU. NET NEUTRALITY MEANS THAT INTERNET PROVIDERS AREN’T ALLOWED TO MAKE CERTAIN WEBSITES OPERATE SLOWER OR FASTER THAN OTHERS. THEY ALL HAVE TO FUNCTION AT THE SAME SPEED, NO MATTER WHAT THEIR CONTENT IS. MASSACHUSETTS U-S SENATOR EDWARD MARKEY MET WITH OTHER SENATORS IN WASHINGTON TODAY TO SUPPORT REGULATING THE INTERNET LIKE A PUBLIC UTILITY. “YES COMPUTERS” IN NORTHAMPTON EXPLAINED WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ALL INTERNET SERVICE ISN’T CREATED EQUAL. NETFLIX, FOR EXAMPLE, WENT DOWN FOR MANY VERIZON CUSTOMERS A FEW YEARS AGO, SIMPLY BECAUSE VERIZON AND NETFLIX DISAGREED OVER HOW MANY WIRES SHOULD BE CONNECTING THEIR 2 NETWORKS. TODAY’S GATHERING IN D-C FOLLOWS PRESIDENT TRUMP’S APPOINTMENT LAST WEEK OF A NEW F-C-C COMMISSIONER, WHO OPPOSES NET NEUTRALITY AND BELIEVES THE RULES ARE UNNECCESSARY. PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS PROPOSED POTENTIAL PLANS TO ROLL BACK NET NEUTRALITY REGULATIONS. LIVE FROM THE HC BUREAU IN NOHO,

Danny Hutson
