Title: On 12/12, Break the Internet to stop the FCC.
Date: 2017-12-12 12:20:37
Comcast, Verizon and AT&T want to end net neutrality so they can control what we see & do online. They want to gut FCC rules, and then pass bad legislation that allows extra fees, throttling & censorship. But Congress can put a stop to all of this. Write Congress first, then call, then join our day of action December 12th!
What is net neutrality? Why does it matter?
Net neutrality is the principle that Internet providers like Comcast & Verizon should not control what we see and do online. In 2015, startups, Internet freedom groups, and 3.7 million commenters won strong net neutrality rules from the US Federal Communication Commission (FCC). The rules prohibit Internet providers from blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization—”fast lanes” for sites that pay, and slow lanes for everyone else.
Without an Open Internet it will be an additional burden on Actors that use sites such as The Southern Casting Call and others along with all social media pages and streaming services.
