Net Neutrality

Recommended Posts

As you probably all know by now, a vote for Net Neutrality in the United States is due to happen today, on the 14th December.

If you don't know what any of this means, Net Neutrality is a set of laws in the US which prevent Internet Providers from restricting access and internet speeds freely. The FCC has been pushing to remove these laws despite public protest, and they could succeed tomorrow. For example, under a Service Provider, Facebook might load much slower, or be blocked entirely. You would have to pay to make it run faster or even access it, or use a sponsored alternative for free, such as MySpace.

These laws aren't being passed to benefit the public at all. They're solely to take internet freedom from you, and make you pay to get it back.

Even if you don't live in the US, this might affect you. Services such as Steam could potentially take a big hit and may have to change how they operate, and of course, if you live in the United States then you could potentially have the restrictions listed above on your access to the internet. If the vote is passed, other countries could be encouraged to follow suit.

Visit https://www.battleforthenet.com/breaktheinternet/ for some more information. US Citizens can contact Congress directly to protest, and non-US Citizens can join in through Social Media.

Or you can watch this.
