In an emailed statement, Facebook's vice-president of USA public policy Erin Egan said: "We are disappointed that the proposalannounced today by the FCC fails to maintain the strong net neutrality protections that will ensure the internet remains open for everyone".
The Federal Communications Commission will vote next month to remove almost every rule on the books that protects the idea of net neutrality. "In doing so, the perpetrator or perpetrators attacked what is supposed to be an open public process by attempting to drown out and negate the views of the real people, businesses, and others who honestly commented on this important issue", he said, noting that many misused real names and addresses.
We do much more on the internet than consume content, however. What an absolutely and utterly bad proposal - clearly the result of deep-rooted corruption and bribery among U.S. carriers and the United States government.
Net neutrality is in danger, as the Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai has moved to eliminate the regulations.

Portugal is a member of the European Union, where net neutrality is enforced in all member countries by BEREC, the EU's equivalent of the FCC. "Even for this FCC and its leadership, this proposal raises hypocrisy to new heights". She posted a two-page fact sheet that unpacks chairman Ajit Pai's proposal to undo net neutrality yesterday, which you can read over on the FCC's site (PDF). For this reason, people on both sides of the issue have called for Congress to take action and amend the Communications Act to codify net neutrality protections.
They'll vote on the proposal at the next FCC meeting on December 14th, and experts say it is expected to pass.
WHEELER: Oh, wow. If you like your cable company, then you'll love what's going to happen to the Internet because suddenly the rules - instead of being open, the rules now will resemble very similar to what your rules are if you're a cable company where the cable company decides who you can get access to, what your prices will be. This might help the people to find exact opportunities to elevate their lives and moderate the costs involved in affording certain services like instant healthcare, education and more.
The dispute over net neutrality has been the subject of several court battles, with backers arguing strong rules are needed to guard against powerful broadband firms like Comcast and AT&T acting as "gatekeepers" that can punish rivals. What's more, some 50,000 recent consumer complaints appear to have gone missing.
"Misuse of identity online by the hundreds of thousands should concern everyone ― for and against net neutrality, New Yorker or Texan, Democrat or Republican", he continued. Gen. Eric Schneiderman has been investigating these apparently fake comments for six months. Spectrum is a public resource and it needs to be spent on maximisation of public good.
With this week's proposal, the FCC is trusting ISPs to tell the public whenever they engage in business practices that have historically drawn ire from customers. In the time before the agency votes, anyone who agrees should do something old-fashioned: Make a ruckus.
