Trump XII – Trump Just Put Net Neutrality on Death Row
Two horrific pieces of bad news for those of us who are fighting for equal opportunities. First the appointment of Betsy DeVos to be Secretary of Education, which I posted about earlier today… and this piece on the end of net neutrality, which effectively meant that broadband was a utility available to everyone for the same price. The privatization of public services is about to begin in earnest… and reversing this trend will require a change in our willingness to dig deeper in our pockets to pay more taxes to help those who are disadvantaged.
Open internet advocates this week expressed concern that Present-elect Donald Trump’s two appointments to his Federal Communications Commission (FCC) transition team spell doom for net neutrality.
