Important Message: Save The Internet

Net Neutrality is against the phone and cable plan to block or degrade access to web sites.
There are only five days left before the FCC deadline for comments

Network Neutrality wants to preserve the free and open Internet.

"Put simply, Net Neutrality means no discrimination. Net Neutrality prevents Internet providers from speeding up or slowing down Web content based on its source, ownership or destination.
Net Neutrality protects the consumer's right to use any equipment, content, application or service on a non-discriminatory basis without interference from the network provider. With Net Neutrality, the network's only job is to move data — not choose which data to privilege with higher quality service.
AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and Time Warner, among others, want to be Internet gatekeepers, deciding which Web sites go fast or slow and which won't load at all."

Do you want to tax content providers to guarantee speedy delivery of data and discriminate in favor of their own search engines, Internet phone services, and streaming video — while slowing down or blocking their competitors?

"The big phone and cable companies are spending hundreds of millions of dollars lobbying Congress and the Federal Communications Commission to gut Net Neutrality, putting the future of the Internet at risk."

Don't let it happen.
