Net Neutrality Brilliantly and Hilariously Explained

The FCC’s proposed rules on net neutrality present such a huge setback to Internet growth and investment, even Congress thinks it’s a bad idea.

John Oliver explains why, both brilliantly and hilariously.


To comment via phone to an FCC human, dial +1 (888) 225-5322, then press 1, 4, then 0. Below is a sample comment you can read to the person on the line.

“I’d like to comment on proposed net neutrality rules and the open Internet. If a site cannot deliver data properly because it is constrained to a trickle, the site is rendered useless. Internet service providers can use this dynamic to blackmail companies to pay up, or silence online discussion which is necessary for a healthy Democracy, but unfavorable to the company. They can decide who succeeds in commerce and at the ballot box. The whole concept of fast lane bandwidth distribution needs to be banned outright.”
