Slower speeds. Additional rates Blocked content The FCC plans to do all that legally.
The Federal Communications Commission is willing to allow Internet providers to favor certain content over others, a potentially mbadive change in Internet regulation that could result in slower transmission speeds, additional fees for users and higher profits for companies like Comcast, AT & T and Verizon. The FCC vote to end net neutrality rules next month looks set to happen, ending the 2015 regulations that FCC chair Ajit Pai, a former Verizon lawyer, unfairly alleges It hurts businesses.

Trump scolds Ball as "ungrateful fool" before Thanksgiving
As the nation prepares to celebrate all it appreciates, President Trump pointed to a citizen who believes he needs a lesson in gratitude: LaVar Ball – the impetuous father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball and two other NBA contenders. It all started when Ball's son, LiAngelo, and two other freshmen from the UCLA basketball team were arrested for theft during a trip to China. Trump said he helped secure the release of the youth, but Ball's father refused to thank Trump. In response, the president unleashed a tweetstorm in which he called Ball an "ungrateful fool" and a "poor version of Don King, but without hair." During the weekend, Ball said that if he was going to thank someone for his son's release it would be Chinese President Xi Jinping, which caused Trump to tweet, "I should have left them in jail!"
While the LaVar Ball-Donald Trump fight continues, here's a look at how they stack up against some of the best smack talking about the world of sports.

Explore the complete constellation of factors that resulted in the current movement. Just today: Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys denied the rape accusations of a pop singer, while star gymnast Gabby Douglas said he faced badual abuse by American gymnastics doctor Larry Nbadar, who pleaded guilty to being a badual predator.
