Net neutrality ii: last week tonight with john oliver (hbo

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States is considering a plan from its chairman, Ajit Pai, to repeal net neutrality, the concept that allows internet providers to handle all traffic fairly.
There has been an outpouring of support for the 2015 Open Internet Rules since the FCC’s consultation period on Pai’s proposal began, culminating on July 12 this year, when internet users came together for a day of action to preserve net neutrality. Last week, Democratic lawmakers demanded an extension to the comment period deadline, citing the staggering 18 million comments received.
“Dear Senators and Representatives: The American public, as well as your constituents (including myself), demand that Ajit Pai’s plan to repeal net neutrality be rejected. Chairman Pai has shown no signs of being sensitive, which is why we need our congressional representatives to demand that the public voice be heard and that the free, equal internet be protected at the FCC. I’m counting on you to make it clear to the FCC that net neutrality is a pillar of human rights and the economy, and that the government of this country must uphold it.”

Page loads for GoFCCYourself.com are slow, but other parts of the FCC website that Oliver’s custom URL doesn’t point to seem to be functioning normally. It’s also the net neutrality feedback page that’s been struggling to keep up with the unexpected surge of traffic. What was the purpose of the redirect in the first place? Finding the right page to inform former Verizon lawyer Pai and his colleagues that an open internet is extremely important to you was extremely difficult, as Oliver demonstrates in the video below.
As you might expect, this isn’t something you’d find on the FCC’s (currently) functional homepage. Finding the comment tab, knowing the proceeding number, and then realizing that the resulting connection with “+ Express” means that’s where you go to register your feelings on the issue is how you get to the comment section. GoFCCYourself skips all of that and directs you to the comment tab. It’s very helpful, which explains, at least in part, why the site is currently facing so many problems.

What senior officials thought was a cyberattack on their filing system last May was not a cyberattack at all, according to a full report by the Federal Communications Commission’s inspector general. According to a study first published by Gizmodo, the cause was a combination of a large rise in traffic and design flaws in the system.
The FCC’s comment system crashed on May 7th, 2017, after John Oliver urged viewers of Last Week Tonight to visit sites like gofccyourself.com to quickly send comments ahead of the FCC’s December vote to repeal net neutrality rules. Thousands of people visited the site to voice their views on the proposed rule change, overburdening the system and possibly stopping anyone from commenting.
Senior officials and commissioners, including chairman Ajit Pai, initially said that the device crash was caused by a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, with a large amount of targeted traffic to blame. However, the inspector general claims that there was no cyberattack at all. The system was most likely shut down due to design defects in the system, combined with a rise in traffic from the John Oliver program (up 3,116 percent). The report said, “Our investigation did not substantiate the allegations of multiple DDoS attacks.”

Episodes of John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight are listed below.
The HBO news parody television series Last Week Tonight with John Oliver’s episode “Net Neutrality II” is dedicated to net neutrality in the United States. It aired for 19 minutes on May 7, 2017, as the eleventh episode of the fourth season and the 100th overall.
Comedian John Oliver addresses the challenge to net neutrality in this chapter. In early 2014, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was debating two alternatives for net neutrality under President Barack Obama’s previous administration, which Oliver discussed in a previous segment titled “Net Neutrality.” The FCC considered allowing fast and slow broadband lanes, which would jeopardize net neutrality, but also considered reclassifying broadband as a telecommunications service, which would protect net neutrality. Following a torrent of pro-net neutrality comments triggered by Oliver’s episode, the FCC voted in 2015 to reclassify broadband as a utility.
