In “Net Neutrality Facing Full Repeal in F.C.C Plan”, Federal Communications Commission chairman, Ajit Pai, stated, “we decided to abandon successful policies solely because of hypothetical harms.”. However, these harms are not hypothetical.

Without net neutrality, ISPs, such as Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon, control what is available to their consumers. This control limits options for consumers and doesn’t allow small businesses to branch out, which will end up hurting the economy in the long run. ISP’s could also block out political information that they don’t necessarily agree with. They could also block competing internet providers websites, making it extremely difficult to switch to a different ISP. Not only can ISP’s control what content you see, they can make you pay to use certain websites and apps, that are now currently free.

The fears of life without net neutrality are completely overblown. People don’t often realize the seriousness of the issue. Without it, we lose the best thing about the internet, the limitless options, and open access.
