Imagine your grocery store only carried the brand of soda (or bread or soup or…) you hated. Or, worse, they’d let you get the kind you wanted – but only if you paid an extra fee.
And worse – you’d have to go to the next town over (or two towns over, or more) to find a grocery store that didn’t stiff you like that.
That’s what a world without Net Neutrality would be like – except with your e-mail, your web browser, your games, your music, your shopping, and more.
TODAY (12 July) is the Internet-wide day of action to support Net Neutrality.
It doesn’t matter what your politics, views, or lifestyle is; you want net neutrality.
Help preserve Net Neutrality by heading to https://www.battleforthenet.com and letting your representatives know that you value a truly competitive free market and the ability to choose how you communicate rather than having someone else dictate it to you.
Also go to the FCC’s site and leave a comment at http://gofccyourself.com (thanks to John Oliver gets you right to where you need to be) and click “Express”. If you’d rather have directions (with pictures), those are here:
