So, when you go to load this website (or any other website), you expect the page to load quickly and painlessly. Because of net neutrality, these expectations are almost always the reality - if not, it typically has to do with the response speed of the web server or your connection speed.
However, the FCC wants to kill net neutrality so that large companies (mostly ISPs) can setup monopolies and limit your internet access. If net neutrality is repealed, you may have to start paying for access to your favorite sites. For example, let's say your ISP (we'll call them Internet, Inc.) could partner with Bing, and make it so that Bing loads faster than Google (which, let's be honest, we all prefer).
With the current laws and regulations, what I just described is illegal. However, Congress is scheduled to vote on repealing these laws so that ISPs can start unfairly prioritizing your internet access and charging you to access sites that they are slowing down.
But, there is something that you can do (even if you don't live in the United States) to stop net neutrality from being repealed. Go to Battle For The Net to join the battle, where you can fill out the form to volunteer to speak with a Congressman about his opinion. They give you tips on how to speak, what to say, and they connect you free of charge (unless you don't live in the U.S., in which case international calling fees may apply).
If you care at all about having an open and unlimited internet, I'm asking you to take action. Today is the Day Of Action, on which everyone in the country and around the world has the option to speak with Congressmen about changing their opinions before the vote. Thank you so much for considering.
