In response to the 28 Democratic senators who urged the agency on Monday to postpone the vote, the FCC said in a statement to Ars Technica that it was "just evidence that supporters of heavy-handed Internet regulations are becoming more desperate by the day as their effort to defeat Chairman [Ajit] Pai's plan to restore Internet freedom has stalled".

On Dec. 14, internet in the United States could change forever-and not necessarily for the better.

"Without net neutrality there will be less awesome art".

There's also an oft-repeated canard against net neutrality making the rounds. Sen. Fifty-five percent of Democrats support the regulations, as do 53 percent of Republicans. The August study by researcher Emprata found that among the sliver of comments that were unique, non-form letters, more (1.77 million) were against the repeal than for the repeal (24,000). It is clear that Americans overwhelming support net neutrality. "Any business practice that would affect the offering of a service has to be disclosed to the consumers, and entrepreneurs can understand exactly how these businesses are operated".

"If the FCC votes to gut these protections it will explicitly allow Internet providers to charge extra fees that amount to a tax on the entire creative economy". It's good principle. It treats America's internet service providers as a utility.

Blood flow and heart rate also increased after a walk in the park, blood pressure decreased, and arteries became less stiff. The study added: " These beneficial responses were attenuated after walking on Oxford Street ".

"I think what's going to happen is the FCC will go ahead and eliminate Net Neutrality and we will be in this different world", said Hricik.

"The FCC would still require transparency", Pai said, in an article on npr.org. Instead, Congress continues to turn a blind eye as their appointee dismantles equal access to the internet.

While disheartening, this is far from surprising.

Against Me!, Bassnectar, Colin Hay, Atmosphere, the Glitch Mob and Run the Jewels' Trackstar the DJ were also among the signers of the open letter, which argued that killing net neutrality would allow "telecom giants" to monopolize internet access as well as be the arbiters of what is accessible. The future of the internet and free information is now being sold to the highest bidder.
