The Federal Communications Commission has proposed the two tiered internet that would let the service providers line up the traffic. However, President Barrack Obama has disagreed with this proposal. The president has put forth this statement at the US Africa Business Forum recently, and articulated this proposal would lead to strangled competition and can curb free speech in the virtual world. When Barrack Obama answered to the questions raised on the same niche, has said that the underlying internet neutrality issue in US is, if the different PhotonVPS providers charge different rates. The giants could pay more and in turn would be looking to charge more for more spectrum and bandwidth. For the next giant like Google or Facebook to succeed, this has to be left open. The president also enunciated that many do not want to find what various users are charged for accessing internet. When President Barrack Obama was campaigning for elections a few years back, net neutrality was a part of it. He had advocated for a level playing field, where anyone who has got the best idea can succeed. But, it is a fact now that a strong stance on net neutrality has not been taken by the president still.
The new rules of the Federal Communications Commission are seeing opposition and voting happened in May. In this, the giants like Google, Facebook, and Amazon, 27,000 individuals, FCC commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, and the president Barrack Obama have voted in favor of the review process. The plan of FCC prevents the internet service providers from acting in any manner that can be commercially arbitrary or favoring any traffic that can come from any allied entity. However, the statement has ambiguous words. What is commercially reasonable cannot be defined. For instance, giants like Amazon and Netflix can charge more for the network speed, which is unsurpassed, they offer.
The reason for the odd rules thrown by the FCC, is to obey the DC Circuit rule. This DC Circuit ruling actually struck down the open internet rules previously in January, articulates, Public Knowledge, a digital rights group. It also further added that when the broadband internet access is reclassified by FCC as a Title II common carrier, the internet service providers would be stopped from discrimination between the traffic. While open internet struck down can mean a lot to the startups struggling to succeed, and free speech being curbed, the voting got for the review process can bring some relief.
