This is a battle for the future of the internet
Unfortunetely we lost. But thats not the end of it! We are still fighting for a change, and hopefully, before it takes effect next year, we can change that!
The FCC just announced its plan to slash net neutrality rules, allowing ISPs like Verizon to block apps, slow websites, and charge fees to control what you see & do online. They vote December 14th. But if Congress gets enough calls, *they* can stop the FCC.

Spread the word to friends and faimlies, call or email your state's senators, the FCC, or congress. At the website above, they give you a suggested script of what to say to your congress member, so it's very easy to contribute to the cause!
Cable companies are famous for high prices and poor service. Several rank as the most hated companies in America. Now, they're lobbying the FCC and Congress to end net neutrality. Why? It's simple: if they win the power to slow sites down, they can bully any site into paying millions to escape the "slow lane."This would amount to a tax on every sector of the American economy. Every site would cost more, since they'd all have to pay big cable. Worse, it would extinguish the startups and independent voices who can't afford to pay. If we lose net neutrality, the Internet will never be the same.
Comcast & Verizon want to end net neutrality so they can control what we see & do online.
