Here's where Verizon store net neutrality protests are happening tomorrow

A great little piece from the Inverse lays out how the "Chatham House" rules may protect Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai from being quoted for what he says at Verizon Communications, his former employer, nine days before net neutrality rules are set to be axed. The internet as a whole could become a tiered entity where the rich have access to all the content at normal speeds, while the poor have to deal with blocked websites and slow loading times.

Some are concerned that the burgeoning cryptocurrency market could take a hit as well if the FCC votes to repeal net neutrality. Johnson said. "They're going to have to share that same pipeline, no prioritization, with, for example, people streaming illegal content or pornography?" Markey (D-Mass.) told reporters on a December 6 press call.

"There are essentially four enterprises that are very happy, and the rest of the country is very unhappy [about the repeal]", Eshoo said.

Groups such as Fight For The Future, Demand Progress and Free Press are now creating online petitions for net neutrality and help individuals write to congress about their opinions towards net neutrality.

In addition to removing the FCC's restrictions on how broadband companies can handle web traffic, his plan would put the Federal Trade Commission, a consumer protection agency, in charge of policing internet providers. Venture capital money for Internet-based companies has risen, and ISPs have enjoyed "expansion in profitability and stock prices", he said. The FCC will vote to roll back net neutrality December 14. If we allow the FCC to go through with dismantling net neutrality, the freedom of the internet will be taken away for the benefit of internet providers such as Comcast and Verizon.

The FCC imposed net neutrality rules in 2010, but they were struck down in court in 2014 after Verizon sued.

Providers would have to disclose if they are throttling speeds. Without net neutrality internet providers could not only control what sites you're allowed to see - but also control how fast certain websites/apps load. Markey said he wants to see what happens to Pai's order in court before contemplating any sort of net neutrality bill. "The Verizon lawyer said, 'I have been instructed by my client that I may say, one of the reasons we are appealing is that we intend to prioritize traffic, '" Wheeler said.

"This is just evidence that supporters of heavy-handed internet regulations are becoming more desperate by the day as their effort to defeat Chairman [Ajit] Pai's plan to restore internet freedom has stalled", the FCC said in a statement provided to Ars Technica, according to The Hill.
