If the FCC votes to repeal net neutrality, the internet as we know it could soon be gone.
On December 14, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is expected to vote to overturn net neutrality, allowing major corporations like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon to mess with your ability to freely engage with online services.
Net neutrality prevents internet service providers (ISPs) from discriminating against certain content by slowing load times or blocking it altogether. It also prohibits these ISPs from boosting speeds exclusively for sites that are owned by the provider or willing to pay extra.
Everyone in the United States deserves equal access to the internet. Net neutrality isn’t just about making sure you can stream the latest TV show or share cute cat GIFs with your friends — it’s about ensuring that the internet remains open for all.
Send a message to the FCC before the Dec. 14 deadline: Protect net neutrality and preserve equal access to the Internet.
