Worried About Net Neutrality Censoring Content? Meet Google.com

The New Censorship

(usnews.com) How did Google become the internet’s censor and master manipulator, blocking access to millions of websites?Evil Google

Google, Inc., isn’t just the world’s biggest purveyor of information; it is also the world’s biggest censor.

The company maintains at least nine different blacklists that impact our lives, generally without input or authority from any outside advisory group, industry association or government agency. Google is not the only company suppressing content on the internet. Reddit has frequently been accused of banning postings on specific topics, and a recent report suggests that Facebook has been deleting conservative news stories from its newsfeed, a practice that might have a significant effect on public opinion – even on voting. Google, though, is currently the biggest bully on the block. [Read more…]

21 states sue to keep net neutrality as Senate Democrats reach 50 votes

(Reuters.com) – A group of 21 U.S. state attorneys general filed suit to challenge the Federal Communications Commission’s decision to do away with net neutrality on Tuesday while Democrats said they needed just one more vote in the Senate to repeal the FCC ruling.

The petition was filed with a federal appeals court in Washington as Senate Democrats said on Tuesday they had the backing of 50 members of the 100-person chamber for repeal, leaving them just one vote short of a majority. [Read more…]

7 Reasons Net Neutrality Is Idiotic

The government should keep its grubby hands off the Internet.

Wednesday was a “Day of Action” in support of net neutrality regulations; large tech companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon all showcased their support for the regulations.

Net neutrality is the notion that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) shouldn’t be able to “slow down, speed up, or block data as it is routed from its content originator to end users” in order to favor particular sites. The net neutrality regulations put in place under the Obama administration involved subjecting the Internet to Title II of the 1934 Communications Act, where it’s considered a public utility that is subject to the iron grip of the FCC.

The FCC is now trying to kill these regulations, and they are right do so. Here are seven reasons why. [Read more…]

What’s the best way to test my broadband speed?

Since most homes are now using wifi routers, speed checks to make sure you’re getting your money’s worth is not as simple as it used to be. The router may not give you the same bandwidth as what you’ll get with a hard-wired connection. Also, the speed may vary based on usage in the home. Here are some things you should know coming from experts in the field.

It should be clear that you cannot check the speed of your broadband using wifi. When you buy a broadband service from an ISP (Internet Service Provider), they are only responsible for the service delivered to your premises or, at best, to the router. Also, if you buy a service that offers “up to” a certain speed, that’s basically the best case. It only guarantees that [some] of the users of that service get that speed. Most people will get less.
