Repealing net neutrality is a dangerous path

The Federal Communications Commission, or FCC, will vote to repeal the net neutrality rules established during the previous administration. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai claims the regulations are too heavy-handed and stop major telecom companies like AT&T and Verizon from pursuing new business models. The vote is scheduled for Dec. 14. Under the proposed changes, internet service providers (ISPs) would be able to manipulate internet speeds and force you to pay higher fees to access certain websites like Netflix, Twitter, Google, YouTube and many more. If we allow these companies to regulate Internet speeds who is to say that what we users search for and see on the net reach day would not be regulated or censored in the future.
