The Hypocritical Dishonesty Of The Net Neutrality Campaign

Net neutrality isn’t about censorship, but who will pay for faster Internet speeds. If ISPs are to keep up with consumer demands for fast broadband for live streaming the companies who provide live streaming and the ISPs need to work together to negotiate the cost of upgrades.

Either way consumers will need to pay more because corporations always increase prices when the cost for service increases. So if you like your Netflix and faster broadband expect to pay more.

Some think we need net neutrality to keep the Internet free and open, but it always has been. It’s government agencies and regulations like net neutrality that could lead to censorship and higher costs for consumers. Net neutrality has already put limits on expansion and innovation of better fiber optics in consumers homes.
