Americans Of All Stripes Strongly Want the FCC To Maintain Net Neutrality

As the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) prepares to vote on the future of Net Neutrality in the U.S. on Thursday, it turns out a vast majority of the country doesn’t want them to repeal the rules that are in place.

It’s almost certain that the FCC will repeal the regulations, as Republican nominees dominate its leadership, but a whopping 83% of people surveyed by the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy said they were against the move.

Net Neutrality is the principle that all online traffic should be treated equally.

So do the equipment manufacturers that supply them, because higher prices for consumers may mean more money for investment in telecommunications networks.

“A decision to repeal net neutrality would be tacking against strong headwinds of public opinion blowing in the opposite direction,” said Steve Kull, director of the school’s Program for Public Consultation.
