Net neutrality is more important than whatever you're doing right now

I’m on the FCC. Please stop us from killing net neutrality.

“Wiping out net neutrality would have big consequences,” writes Democratic FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel. “Without it, your broadband provider could carve internet access into fast and slow lanes, favoring the traffic of online platforms that have made special payments and consigning all others to a bumpy road. Your provider would have the power to choose which voices online to amplify and which to censor. The move could affect everything online, including the connections we make and the communities we create.”


John Oliver explains why net neutrality is “hugely important”

On a recent episode of Last Week Tonight on HBO, Daily Show alum John Oliver explained why net neutrality is “hugely important” in plain English, taking aim at Comcast, Verizon, and other big telco companies, which want to create a multi-tiered Internet that they could profit from by charging extra for fast delivery of content. Oliver’s segment ended with a call to action, urging viewers to weigh in on the FCC’s flawed Net Neutrality rules by going to the FCC’s website.
