Civil Rights Groups Funded By Telecoms Back Trump’s Plan To Kill Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality is the principle that the internet should be transparent and that its users have full equal access to its services, applications and content.

Telecommunications giants like At&T, Verizon and Comcast oppose an open internet arguing it stifles innovation and industry growth. Now a group of civil rights organizations have thrown their support behind President Trump’s plan to essentially end Net Neutrality after they received funds from the major telecoms.

Rashad Robinson, Executive Director of the Color of Change discusses the potential impact of the end of Net Neutrality on Black America during Wednesday’s edition of NewsOne Now.
