US citizens recently lost net neutrality in a battle to corporate greed and political corruption. That the current political climate in the USA allowed the sale of an FCC majority brings bad tidings to the entire world. Ajit Pai’s FCC acted with impunity in their deceitful manipulation of the system, so should see prison time. While you may not yet understand the ramifications of their decision, you must wonder how this will affect you directly. In particular, Kodi users have much to ponder and prepare for with net neutrality now poised upon the chopping block.
To hear the latest news concerning net neutrality’s effect on Kodi users, then check the KFire TV front page often. We care deeply about this, so will post current news concerning lost net neutrality pertinent to Kodi users. This will go on until your ISP either blocks our site from you or loses the right to do so. If protected by an encrypted VPN that allows hiding your location, then you can follow this story until its resolution.
Lost Net Neutrality Effects on Internet Users
The FCC essentially gave Internet Service Providers the freedom to prey upon subscribers. Over 129 million Americans have no choice in which ISP to choose. Within their area, there exists only one internet source, so they remain vulnerable. ISPs can now decide what services subscribers may access, then charge extra dependant upon the same. This will prove seriously problematic when ISPs prefer one service over another within the same category. Many Internet Service Providers in the US already throttle internet speeds for people streaming video, whether from YouTube or Kodi Exodus. They only do this when they can tell what your internet traffic consists of, so many of us within VPNs remain unaffected.
Imagine your ISP buying stock in a video streaming service such as Hulu, then throttling back or even blocking Hulu’s competition. This kind of commercial-interest control of online services already exists in parts of the world without Net Neutrality in place. Then, imagine your ISP deciding to package access to Gmail or FaceBook or any other service for an extra fee. They have this right without Net Neutrality, and do you believe they won’t capitalize on it? They already do in other parts of the world.
What You Can Do NOW
If you already have your VPN set up, then get on the phone with Congress and tell them to reinstate the Open Internet Order. What you can and cannot access may depend upon your ISP’s commercial interests unless we all act to overturn this absurd FCC decision. I know many people think their 10-minute contribution of time has negligible effects, but your activity really can help. We won the day back in 2015 only by an overwhelming show of support for our own rights. Let us do so once more!
