This week on “Last Week Tonight,” host John Oliver attempted to explain the importance of net neutrality, because so far the whole story is so G-D boring that no one has really tried to even do it right.
Basically, here’s how it shakes out: Evil cable companies are attempting to create a two-tiered system that would create an unequal playing field when it comes to internet speeds, which, of course, they argue is a good thing. Oliver (and any sane person) would tend to disagree.
“If we let cable companies offer two speeds of service, they won’t be Usain Bolt and Usain Bolt on a motor bike. They’ll be Usain Bolt and Usain Bolted to an anchor,” said Oliver.
He ends the segment by calling on all internet-commenting “monsters” to do what they do best and, for once in your life, leave potentially useful comments on the issue over at FCC.GOV. So, yeah, go do that now!
