What is Net Neutrality?

Apt Mgr -

The FCC plans to announce a vote to end NET NEUTRALITY [currently access to all NET websites costs the same NEUTRAL], effectively charging different prices for different websites. You'll pay extra to stream Netflix, shop Amazon, watch porn, use PayPal or Skype loved ones. It's like adding an extra tax. They will analyze every website you visit, invading your privacy, so they can present charges on your monthly bill. ATT, Verizon and other corporations want a piece of the money transaction pie and you will pay extra for it.

What is net neutrality? Why does it matter?

Net neutrality is the principle that Internet providers like Comcast & Verizon should not control what we see and do online. In 2015, startups, Internet freedom groups, and 3.7 million commenters won strong net neutrality rules from the US Federal Communication Commission (FCC). The rules prohibit Internet providers from blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization—"fast lanes" for sites that pay, and slow lanes for everyone else.

We support net neutrality, freedom of speech.

Nearly everyone who understands and depends on the Internet supports net neutrality, whether they're startup founders, activists, gamers, politicians, investors, comedians, YouTube stars, or typical Internet users who just want their Internet to work as advertised—regardless of their political party, ethnicity, sexual orientation, income level, or any other differences. We are all affected by this tax proposal.
