FCC In Hot Water For Publishing Comments By A Dead Person Supporting To End The Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality was voted to be repealed recently.

In case you didn’t know what it was, it was a legislation that forced ISP to view internet data as just data and not be able to throttle or increase speeds depending on what you’re doing. For example, if you wanted to watch 250MB worth of a video on Youtube, then ISPs could only charge you for that 250MB as is.

But without it, they can charge different for Youtube and Netflix, and whatever. In fact, they could demand a higher payment from their rival companies for better speed, which in turn would mean they’d charge more to the consumer to keep it up.

Basically, Net Neutrality is a big deal.

It’s your water company treating all water you get as just that. Water. They can’t charge you different if you’re using water to shower, drink, clean dishes, clean house etc. But without it, you’ll get access to water, but they’ll charge you more depending on how you spend it.

That’s not all either.

Yep, apparently , here are forged letters.

Documents detailing a support for the repeal by someone who died a year ago.

That isn’t the only thing either.

Countless names were forged, multiple entries, or just that the person they referred to wasn’t in support of the repeal and hadn’t consented to having his name put in. There are multiple politicians who are going to sue the FCC for this.

He is the NY Attorney general, and his team is leading the lawsuit.
