We’re in the battle for the net.
Cable companies are spending millions to gut net neutrality and slow your internet to a crawl. We can’t let them.
Help Remind the FCC and Congress of our rights…
We all use the internet, and the freedom that comes with it.
Team Cable, big names like Comcast, Verizon, Time Warner Cable, and AT&T, are threatening that freedom. They want to remove Net Neutrality from being around, and they’re pouring millions of dollars into it.
What’s all this about?
Net Neutrality is a huge part of the internet as we know it today. It means that no data can be throttled or access of it controlled and places everyone and everything on a surprisingly level playing-field. It means that any and all data on the internet has to be treated equally, not matter what it is or who created it.
Without Net Neutrality, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) can decide what it wants you to be able to access, and when. What that means to the common man, woman, or child is that if people in high places decide that cat videos are no longer suitable for the internet, they can just block them. That’s right Internet, no more Grumpy Cat.
It’s essentially Parental Controls, but on steroids.
A world without Net Neutrality would be terrible. It would simply sustain the Internet monopolies.
If an ISP didn’t like a new start-up company or information, they could simply block it and C’est la vie! little company or Au Revoir (never) stories! Without traffic, any site will die.
And to top all of this, President Barack Obama has appointed Tom Wheeler, former top lobbyist for Cable and Wireless providers, to be the next Chairman of the FCC. That’s right, the one guy who used to be on the side of Team Cable, is now leading the one group that stands between us and a nation without a free internet.
