Will Verizon, AT&T, or Comcast, benefit from the Net Neutrality repeal? (poll results)
Will the net neutrality repeal be a boon for carriers?
We asked you last week if you think that carriers will benefit from the gutting of Net Neutrality, and play arbiters to the increasingly vast amount of content that can be accessed through their networks, or will it all work out in the end. Considering that Verizon owns Yahoo's digital media, AT&T is trying to acquire Time Warner, and T-Mobile or Sprint are throwing in Netflix or Hulu for free on their networks, they can certainly put tolls on the road for other content, thus avoiding the fate of being just dumb pipes for bits and bytes. Well, more than 80% of our more than 1000 respondents are weary that the carriers will use their position to set their own rules as to who can access the network at what speed, rather than wave hands, and keep things largely as they are.
We’re disappointed in the decision to gut #NetNeutrality protections that ushered in an unprecedented era of innovation, creativity & civic engagement. This is the beginning of a longer legal battle. Netflix stands w/ innovators, large & small, to oppose this misguided FCC order.— Netflix US (@netflix) 14 декември 2017 г.
