John Oliver (HBO) about Net Neutrality: big companies are doing mob shakedowns


John Oliver explains the controversy about net neutrality and lets viewers know how they can voice their displeasure to the FCC. You can send your mighty trolling comments to the FCC here. As usual, the big companies want to rip-off customers and partners, especially start-ups, by wanting to apply different rules based on content type or content provider.

The ISPs should not get involved in policing what and how gets moves through their cables. You pay for internet access and that’s it. No one needs them to put a cap on your data based on the content type or on the websites you are visiting. Or they should not be allowed to make any type of restrictions based on device you use, content type or content provider. That is, in a nutshell, net neutrality.

John Oliver also explains it in a funny way, but says it correctly: killing net neutrality would allow big companies to pay for a fast lane, while smaller companies would have to stick to slow lane. Ultimately customers would feel the consequences. Great to hear that guy how he smashes ISPs in regards to the net neutrality issue!
