Do you like using the internet and being free to browse what you want? Or how about using the internet to let your voice be heard? In a few months, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) may do away with this by repealing Net Neutrality.
Well back in 2015 the Open Internet Order was passed that prohibits Internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon from discriminating against any website or online service. That means sites like Netflix or YouTube won’t have to pay extra fees or face sluggish connections with their users. And new sites and services will be able to reach everyone on the Internet on the same terms as the big players.
So if you like not seeing the pinwheel of death or streaming Orange is the New Black quickly, you need to support Net Neutrality. Even the big players like Netflix and Amazon don’t want Net Neutrality to be repealed. Although they have deep pockets, they still want the rules of the Open Internet Order to stand. They do not want big cable companies to control what you see and do online.
Today, July 12th, is the Day of Action. The Day of Action is a protest that anyone can participate in and some of the most powerful companies in tech will let their support for Net Neutrality be known. You are encouraged to write, email or call Congress to tell them you stand with us in the fight to save #NetNeutrality.
Here is a quick video to help explain why you should stand up to the FCC.
