The senate just voted to restore it. Now it's just up to the house of reps.
I hope the House of Reps votes YES to restoring Net Neutrality. :)

Donald Trump have to sign it after though. I don't know if he would do that to be honest.

This is some serious shit! The FCC have voted to repeal NET neutrality, but you can still help state a disapproval if you are American:

Can't you just link the petition?

Also Ajit Pai resiging isn't going to save Net Neutrality. The new chairman would have to propose to save it and then that would probably have to be voted on.

tbh, I still hope they vote to take it down. We really didn't need NN at all during the past 30 years the internet's been around. Like, even from my own experience, I've never had problems with the internet. Yes, it was slow at times, but that wasn't the ISPs doing anything on purpose, it was just our internet in general having problems, or it was my own computer. All NN did was prevent ISPs from doing anything "terrible" to the internet (which in reality didn't happen that often within the 30 year time span) and put the Government in control. Again, everything was fine the way it was, but then once again Obama had to put the Government in control of something.

Now something surprising is I used to support Net Neutrality. I used to see it as the best protection, and if it was removed, it was the end of the world as we know it. But that was before I listened to the other side of the story, instead of strictly focusing on the Liberal's lies, cries, and begs-not-to-dies. I started remembering my past and how I used the internet, along with how my friends and family used the internet. Everything was fine, we didn't complain about anything or mention how terrible ISPs were to the internet, because whatever ISPs did were rare, and when they did stuff they got in trouble and their effects were reversed. The only complaint I did hear was about NN, and that was the fact that, since NN was put in place, our internet bills have increased, not decreased.

So when NN goes away, it's not gonna be the end of the world. Government will lose control over the internet, and that's it. Sure, you may believe ISPs may be allowed to freely destroy our internet, but will the United States legally allow that? Of course not. Whatever quality the internet was before 2015 will be the quality of the internet from 2018 and onward. And if you want good, fast internet, find a provider that will give you good, fast internet, and have the money to pay for it (if you're an adult responsible for your own bills, that is. otherwise it's up to your parents).

Anyways, to put it short, I still don't support Net Neutrality since I understand most of the information behind it, rather than just being one-sided. If you agree with me, great. If you don't agree with me, that's fine, I'm not gonna attack you for that. (though why I've been attacked before for not supporting NN I have no idea... don't worry, it wasn't on this site)
