Battle for the Net

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai plans to overturn regulations that keep the internet neutral

Save the internet

Net neutrality is good. It means all websites on the internet get the same bandwidth. Netflix.com loads as fast as thebigreason.com. The new FCC Chairman plans to overturn regulations that keep the internet neutral and allow internet providers (telecoms ie. Comcast, Charter, AT&T, Verizon, etc.) to charge more money for increased bandwidth. It also has some very ominous implications for free speech.

Pretty much every telecom is against net neutrality. Pretty much every website you use is in favor of it. Do you like to use the internet because you like doing business with Comcast/Verizon/AT&T, or do you like to use the internet because you like watching movies on Netflix, shopping on Amazon, and listening to music on Spotify?

I have been a web developer for 20 years. Not a lot of people can say that. I support net neutrality and my Congressman, John Garamendi knows it. Let your congressman know how you feel and do your part to keep the internet open to the free market, free exchange of information, and most importantly, free speech.
