    Because I am talking about his rival's position on the topic?

    How dare I not forget the other presidential candidate who is being investigated for both corruption and negligence.

    Why does it matter in this regard? Government agencies are vulnerable to revolving doors and cronyism, the FCC is no different. Canada's equivalent agency has some questionable practices as well as to how it operates and regulates.

    I believe Hillary held a corporatist POV on net neutrality rather than the populist one would hope to see either have and net neutrality would be fucked either way.

    That said, I do not feel that this bodes well. I would rather the consumer have more power than the internet providers due to government regulation. Business needs proper regulation rather than none at all.

    Google, Amazon and 80,000 websites are protesting against the FCC's plans to reverse net neutrality
    More than 80,000 websites including giants such as
    Facebook, Amazon and Google, are taking part in an online protest on Wednesday against the U.S. telecoms regulator's plan to roll back net neutrality rules.

    Under the Barack Obama administration in 2015, rules were put in place that meant internet service providers (ISPs) such as Comcast, Charter, and AT&T, had to treat all internet content equally. Essentially these ISPs are not allowed to block content or speed up or slow down data from certain websites.

    This principle of net neutrality came under threat in May after the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which is headed up by Ajit Pai who was appointed by President Donald Trump, voted to reverse rules put in place under Obama.


    The FCC argues that this will boost investment in new technology by removing regulation.

    But internet companies have been vocal in their opposition to Pai's plans. That's why on Wednesday, many of these services are planning an online protest called the "Day of Action". Among the companies taking part are Twitter, Amazon, Facebook, Google, Reddit, Netflix, Airbnb, and Spotify.
