    Verizon is lying. Comcast lying as well. At&t liars. It's always been about them making money and keeping us uninformed. Laws apply to us not them. FCC conflict of interest committed by Pai and his agreeing colleages. We know Pai is bought and paid for to destroy the internet, so he should stop the double talk
    I think people should stop buying Verizon items as well, don't give them our business.

    If Net Neutrality is gone hopefully some broadband companys will not change and become popular leading to not much change (I don't agree with myself on this one).

    Verison probably will not change things as other broadband companys will which would mean it would have more customers or they are saying lies (most likely option)

    You had to know that net neutrality was dead when Verizon's lawyer got appointed FCC chairman. So much for draining the swamp.

    I feel really sorry for the sheep who don't understand net neutrality and honestly trust these corporations to have their interests in mind. Poor poor blind sheep.

    We invented the internet in the U.S. and we have the slowest of any other (developed obviously) country. This is so bad for the consumer. What would happen if they charged you to enter a store in the mall and some stores were free and others weren’t? The whole country would be in an uproar. How can not having net neutrality be good for the consumer! It’s only good for the companies who can charge more for something we already get for free

    Guys please go to Battle For The Net!! There is a quick form that lets you email key decision makers. Also you can enter your number and be connected to your representatives! Please tell them you support Title 2 Net Neutrality rules and that you want them to publicly oppose the FCC chairman's plan. Please guys it only takes a minute.

    There is no plan to slow down anything. But we would like the option to do so at anytime.— And, as long as we tell you we're going to do it, it is OK – Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast
