Net neutrality is a tricky issue with a lot of different stakeholders. We cord cutters tend to believe in a neutral net, because that would mean that our favorite bandwidth-heavy sites, like Netflix, would be available to us at the same speeds and prices as all other websites. But, of course, net neutrality has plenty of enemies: ISPs, a minority of internet users, and plenty of politicians (most of them Republicans).Weâve told you about the enemies of net neutrality before, and we often write about all the threats that face net neutrality. And itâs true that there are a lot of people against us in this fight. But there are also a lot of pro-neutrality organizations, people, and politicians. Letâs take a moment to get to know the people on our side of the issue.The Business StakeholdersStreaming Services Streaming services have a lot to lose if the netâs neutrality is threatened. ISPs are dying to charge extra for these sites, which consume bandwidth at a much higher rate than other sites. ISPs have already throttled services like Netflix to extort cash from them, and Comcastâs data caps seem explicitly designed to tax streamers. Thatâs why streaming businesses are very aggressively pro-neutrality. In our interview with Sling TV CEO Roger Lynch, Mr. Lynch voiced the concerns of his industry:âWe see concerning things happening if you look at cable companies like Comcast now instituting data caps that just happen to be at a level at or below what someone would use if theyâre watching TV on the internet â and at the same time launching their own streaming service that they say doesnât count against the data cap.âSocial Media Sites Social media sites donât always require a lot of bandwidth, but they do make up a huge chunk of Internet traffic because of just how often their users log on. That means that they'd have a target on their backs in a non-neutral net – ISPs would love to charge extra for the sites that users use most (and that more bandwidth goes towards). As a result, social media giants like Facebook are very pro-neutrality.Politicians and GovernmentMartin Falbisoner [CC BY-SA 3.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], from Wikimedia CommonsNet neutrality is a political issue. If it were legal, ISPs would be selling us a very non-neutral net. And, unless the FCC is there to stop them, theyâll find ways to circumvent the rules that do exist. Here are a couple of the key government players who are generally pro-neutrality.Senator Al Franken (D-MN) Franken is one of the most ardent pro-neutrality lawmakers in Washington. He opposed the âInternet fast laneâ (which President Obama did not) and has even gone so far as to call net neutrality âthe free speech issue of our time.âPresident Barack Obama Some net neutrality proponents are less than thrilled with Obamaâs neutrality stances – he once supported the âInternet fast laneâ – but generally, Obama has been more pro-neutrality than not. He was a force behind the FCCâs decision to reclassify broadband suppliers in order to make them subject to Title II, designed to regular monopolies.People and OrganizationsItâs not just the rich and powerful who have a major stake in net neutrality. We do, too!Cord Cutters Hey, itâs us! As a group, we cord cutters tend to be very pro-neutrality. Thatâs because a non-neutral net would really hurt our ability to stream our content without having to pay big bucks or deal with slowdowns.Internet Power Users This group includes cord cutters, gamers, and all other users who download and/or upload a lot of data. If ISPs are allowed to slow us down or charge extra for access to bandwidth-hungry sites protocols, then we wonât be able to use the Internet for streaming, gaming, downloading large files, etc.Lobbying Organizations So if youâre not a senator or the president, what can you do to aid the fight for neutrality? Well, you can donate to a pro-neutrality lobbying organization. There are plenty of those around, including Save the Internet and the Internet Freedom Coalition. Make your voice heard! Even the powerful allies on this list could use some help.
