The FCC Just Killed Net Neutrality

I usually don’t dive too much into non-sports related topics, but this really pisses me off. The FCC just voted to repeal Net Neutrality in a 3-2 vote, meaning the Internet is no longer a free, open space to search and do whatever the hell you want.

Instead, ISP’s (internet service providers) will now have the ability to speed up, slow down, or even block access to certain websites and apps. These ISP’s can basically control what you are and aren’t able to see now, which is incredibly stupid. I don’t care what that ass-hole FCC chairman says, this isn’t very good for any of us.

I could get into why this is such a bad thing for so many people, but here’s why it effects me and probably whoever is reading this specifically. Since ISP’s can potentially (I say potentially because it has to pass a second wave of voting in congress) control what you see now, how does this effect us at Couch Guy Sports? From just about everything I’ve read, this law is going to give all of the power to whoever can pay these ISP’s the most money, leaving start-up companies and blogs to basically fall off the map.

This law could potentially hurt what I want to do with my life, and the internet plays a very large part in that. So much of sports media (media in general) is online now. This blog has helped me start to create a platform for myself, and I’m incredibly grateful for it. Along with screwing people over financially, this is has the potential to ruin a lot of great, free things, that the internet has to offer, Couch Guy Sports being one of them.
