Net Neutrality: Why It Matters & What You Can Do

The FCC has announced its plans to roll back Net Neutrality. If you can read this post right now, this issue impacts you. And to add insult to injury, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is hoping you won’t notice while you’re busy with Thanksgiving travel. But I’ll let John Oliver explain:

Here are a few key points:

  • Right now it’s illegal for your internet service provider (ISP) to pick favorites
  • Without Net Neutrality large companies can gain an advantage over smaller sites by paying ISPs to favor their content
  • This is about making money for giant ISPs and nothing else

You can use Oliver’s site to register your thoughts: www.gofccyourself.com

But you can also contact the FCC directly.
