OSCE accused US of attempting to curb freedom of speech

14
The OSCE expressed concern over the decision taken by the United States of America to abandon the principle of the so-called “net neutrality”. This principle was adopted during the presidency of Barack Obama, when providers did not have the right to slow down the speed of individual sites, in fact, of their own free will and to demand additional fees depending on traffic consumption.


Now, the US Federal Communications Commission has decided to cancel the ban on priority distribution of traffic for network portals. Thus, American providers are able to exert direct pressure on individual sites based on their own financial interests, as well as on the interests of US government agencies. The site didn’t like it - its work can be artificially slowed down.

In the OSCE, the decision of the United States was called an attempt to curb freedom of speech.

OSCE accused US of attempting to curb freedom of speech


From the statement of the OSCE Representative on Freedom of Speech, Arlem Desir:
The decision made by the American commission repeals the norms of net neutrality and is a real blow to the freedom of speech, media and digital rights on the web.


In the States themselves, the decision to cancel net neutrality was also perceived with a certain wariness. In particular, New York State Attorney Eric Schneiderman spoke out against the decision taken by federal bodies, stating that he was preparing a lawsuit in connection with the adoption of a scandalous decision by the Federal Communications Commission.

    . The site “didn’t like” its work can be artificially slowed down.

      That's why “freedom of speech” was invented to trade it on the market. Business, and nothing personal. laughing

      you look at our Roskomnadzor

      Um, sorry, these are generally different situations. Do you really understand what the concept of "net neutrality" means?
      This means that there should be no separation of resource capacities for any sites.
      It’s clear that the conditional MS site can open obviously more stable and better than the site "Vasya Pupkina". But this is only a matter of individual hosting settings (hardware, OS, communication channel, etc.). Those. in fact it is limited only by its level of knowledge and the size of the wallet. All.

      And the abolition of network neutrality in the United States is punched by such offices as Netfix, Facebook - they want to have priority at the provider level. To please them to take away the channels from everyone else.

      I will add: our providers in the Russian Federation can serve as a vivid example of partially legal violation of network neutrality - I remember all the operators popping up "discount rates", where social accounts fly, and everything else is almost in kamatose. And all right, when it comes to mobile operators (in fact, no, I personally am against it), or when it’s a “special tariff” (well then ok) ... but not when it’s the level of the global Internet. I need Wikipedia, not Facebook.

      Therefore, the primary sources of reasons are not at all in the plane of Roskomnadzor.

      And who’s the owner of the dog? Striped ears are not visible?
      My opinion is to disperse this office, although they’re a wabble, let them get it. The spies from them are still none ...

    providers had no right to slow down the speed of individual sites

    I’m just the same, I’m waiting for two minutes, after each message on VO. This has never happened before. Maybe because I live in Hohland? Looking for monitors request Well, I’ve already conditionally received three for separatism, what else do they need? Or the next time with the company "all with us" we are popular in the gay nat parade in Kiev or somewhere else ...
    And it’s not worth talking about the OSCE, Donbass has already shown everything ...

    In the OSCE, the decision of the United States was called an attempt to curb freedom of speech. Was the OSCE going to go against the states? Or is it just a stuffing? request
