Net neutrality fans will get a first look Tuesday at U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman’s plan to delay the repeal of certain rules preventing internet providers from offering different speeds and different prices to different customers — based on who can afford what.
On Tuesday of next week I will be unveiling my #NetNeutrality legislation– the ’21st Century Internet Act’…. more to come.

Colorado Politics reports Coffman will present his plan during a net neutrality event in Washington, D.C.
We don’t want to get bogged down in technical issues and put you to sleep, but the basic premise is that without net neutrality, not everyone will be equal on the internet when it comes to speed.
Large companies who can afford to pay for faster speeds will get it. The rest of us will have to settle for slower fees at lower rates.
The bill has been anticipated for months. Coffman told Politico in March, “The goal is certainly to preserve the principles of net neutrality but to modernize it by creating a separate title, a new title for broadband.”
Oops, we dumped some techno jargon on you. We’ll just wait and see tomorrow what the whole plan entails, and then translate it into English for you.
