We've been here before, ladies and gentlemen.
Once again, the major cable companies--Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T--want the FCC to get rid of net neutrality regulations: "Broadband giants like Comcast, AT&T and Verizon, oppose the FCC's net neutrality policy, because it prevents them from turning the internet into something like cable TV, with different price and service packages for premium content. And they've got a willing ally in Pai, a former Verizon lawyer who was selected to lead the FCC by Trump in January."
Net neutrality " ... is the concept that internet service providers (ISPs) like AT&T and Verizon shouldn't be allowed to prioritize or block legal content on their networks. It also means that they can't set up online fast lanes for deep-pocketed companies at the expense of startups. This open access principle is responsible for establishing the internet as an unprecedented platform for economic growth, civic engagement and free speech, according to net neutrality advocates."
I don't want to pay more for Internet than I already am just to have slower service than what I already have. And I don't want to pay even more than that to have internet service at the speed I have now. I don't want sites to be blocked from me because I have Comcast and the website's ISP is AT&T.
If you agree with me, here's what you can do: Send a letter to the FCC and Congress telling them that you don't want the FCC to end net neutrality.
Please protect the future of the Internet and email the FCC and Congress today. Share this post with your friends so that they can email the FCC and Congress too. Post about the fight for net neutrality on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and everywhere else you live on social media. And thank you for helping!
