U.S. Representative from Texas Louie Gohmert got it wrong on Net Neutrality during a recent congressional hearing. Gohmert speaks loudly and forcefully, so some people might believe him.
The FCC did not “take over the internet,” but it “classified the internet as a utility.”
The big Internet Service Providers (ISPs) would like to charge more for quicker downloads and uploads for specific sites. The big ISPs could also threaten to slow down your site unless you pay more money.
The FCC classified it as a utility so that this won’t happen. The FCC wants Net Neutrality, which is keeping the internet the same as it is now.
