Today you may have noticed a new popup when visiting the site. Today is the Net Neutrality Day of Action and if you agree with the following points I encourage you to make your voice heard. Just follow this link: https://dearfcc.org/
Now, currently Internet Service Providers like Comcast and Verizon are regulated by a rule called Title II. These are the rules of Title II.
- Broadband providers may not block access to legal content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices.
- They may not impair or degrade lawful internet traffic on the basis of content, application, services, or any classes thereof.
- They may not favor some internet traffic over other internet traffic in exchange for consideration of any kind—no paid prioritization or fast lanes
- Prioritize internet traffic with paid tiers that determine how fast a website is delivered to your browser.
- Create an uneven playing field where startup websites have to pay large sums to have their website delivered at the same speed as large ones like Amazon or Google.
- Slow down or even block entirely consumer access to websites based on paid tiers.
If these things matter to you, please make your thoughts known. https://dearfcc.org/If the proposal put forward by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai falls into place, it would allow internet service providers to block, throttle and fast-lane various parts of the internet at will, potentially regulating and censoring your entire web-surfing experience and forcing you to stick to the destinations that pay protection money to these cable and broadband companies.
