Kansas City Mayor Sly Gains More Tech Scene Fans For Net Neutrality Support

Credit where it's due . . . ANYBODY who believes in free speech and web standards opposes the FCC crackdown on net neutrality at the behest of corporate donors and in this instance Mayor Sly offered one of the most impressive defenses of the Internets of nearly any civic leader in the nation. Take a look:

As high profile tech executives, companies, and investors continue to speak out against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)'s upcoming vote to repeal existing net neutrality rules, mayors across the U.S. are also increasingly joining the conversation. Today, Kansas City Mayor Sly James published an op-ed in Startland News, a blog that covers Kansas City tech news, in support of existing net neutrality rules.

We are gonna pay for it one way or another so get used to higher prices regardless of the out come. I wonder how this will affect all government agencies that do so much work online doing research and such?

I can not believe that Trump has not intervened. Killing net neutrality has everything to do with huge corporations, the MPAA and Hollywood and nothing to do with a free and open Internet. Folks are already paying up to 20 times what the Internet actually costs their ISPs so it is more about streaming content and gaining the ability to choke your Internet traffic selectively.

There's Slick Sly, late to the party as usual, stumping along in the dust behind 59 other more savvy and informed Mayors, all the while screaming "FOLLOW ME TO (cough, wheeze) GLORY!"
