I vehemently support net neutrality backed by Title 2 oversight of ISP’s. I do not support Ajit Pies proposed changes and strongly feel his former employment as a Verizon lawyer makes him unfit for his current position at the FCC as it is an obvious conflict of interest. :(
Do not overturn net neutrality, doing so would be a dramatic destabilization of life as Americans know it. I would look to see, Pai, how much money you’ll be gaining out of this deal.
My mother, who is retired and living on a monthly social security check, is currently paying $230 per month for her phone/cable/internet bundle. And that’s just for the basic services. That bill is a third of her check. Seems pretty messed up to ask her to pay more each month if she wants to us Facebook to talk to out of state relatives. That is a possibility if you vote to roll back net neutrality. The least able will be the most impacted. Think before you vote.
I urge you to take action on this issue. It is incredibly important to me and I will not forget your stance. What you are proposing in rolling back these safeguards is completely appalling and unacceptable. Not only will this potentially restrict our first amendment rights by policing what we have access to on the internet, it will leave the little guy to get outrageously overcharged for certain services. Another roll back that doesn't look out for the good of the people, but the pockets of the rich. The government isn't micromanaging the internet, it's making sure internet providers and cable companies don't take advantage of their customers. This is just one of many pieces of legislation pending right now that has no business being on the table. When will you people in power actually start thinking about the good of everyone, instead of what's beneficially to the rich and major campaign donators.
Net neutrality is vital to free speech. It’s a fundamental American right. The people’s representatives would be the ones to have to vote on net laws. This is wrong to change net policy without a vote of the people elected.
As a Kansan & a SE Kansan who knows your family I am so disappointed in you, Ali. Your family was well respected, but doing this to Net Neutrality will definitely make your name a pox especially when this takes affect and kids, students, and regular people are going to miss out on the variety of things available in Net Neutrality internet, THAT YOU WERE ABLE TO ACCESS WHEN YOU WERE GROWING UP, and many people from your hometown can’t afford to pay extra to find what they need in the internet nor will the small businesses be happy that their websites will be ignored or slowed down because of this terrible decision. You should be ashamed of yourself.
Please do a more thorough investigation of what this will do before you pass it. The possibility of this to be used to exploit the American people is enormous, and safeguards against such abuse should be in place before major regulatory reform takes place.
Pai - when the vast majority of Americans and industry leaders support net neutrality, but still push to reverse it - you look suspicious. You're not fooling anyone. If you proceed with your plan it will be crystal clear, and documented in the history books, that you are NOT working on behalf of U.S. citizens, small businesses, the 1st amendment. You will be judged. And you will be held responsible. Do not let greed destroy the success, integrity and values of our country.
Please block the rollback of Net Neutrality. The internet is a necessary utility and ISPs must not be given free reign to charge more for services or charge for bundled services or to arbitrarily slow down various sites. The majority of Americans now are dependent on the internet for conducting business, paying bills, setting up appointments and for multiple necessary transactions. Please pass the bill to block the rollback of Net Neutrality. Americans have shown that at least 70% of us are for Net Neutrality. Please hear our voices and prevent the rollback of Net Neutrality now.
Me Idjit Pai, WTF? You’re in bed with the giant ISPs obviously. You think the American Public is stupid enough to believe your lies? This won’t fly and you have pretty much sealed the deal to Tahoe back Washington from the Republican majority in 2018. Mueller is taking care of impeaching Atherton entire Executive Branch. Maybe you should be industries on illegal conflict of interests.
Chairman Pai: we do not negotiate with terrorists.You and your puppetmasters at Verizon and AT&T and Comcast will not prevail. You do not own the Internet.

Net neutrality can not be rolled back. It is essential to living in the 21st century. It is a right of all Americans to have accessible and affordable internet services. Corporations should not be allowed to determine the functionality of internet usage in order to drive up prices as it will go against anti-trust regulations set in the mid-20th.
Mr. Pai, I strongly oppose your overturning of net neurally! This is not a partisan issue, but unfortunately you and the other GOP chair people have made it one. You should be ashamed of yourself. Using academic and military studies funded by taxpayers money, you now want to give that to corporations that had nothing to do with generating that information and want to charge us for it. Go FCC yourself!
I pay nearly $500 a month for telephones and internet and TV Add my computer protection and internet security and it’s even higher. I know I am blessed to live in this country and not worrying about food but still I enjoy communicating with my extended family, videos and movie watching in my retirement. I don’t understand what this “net neutrality” things about but my family worries about slow downs in services. Please make wise choices here because I’m paying too much now for these services and I know most working folks in Idaho can’t pay this much. I remember when we had to pay for each phone call and I spoke to my mother once a month because a phone call cost a days pay.
I must say Thank you.
