Obviously you’re on the internet right now. Just browsing & doing what you please. Well if today Net Neutrality is voted down, we will see a much different internet. Much worse.
For those unfamiliar with net neutrality, basically it is an uncontrolled internet where we are able to play one fee & do whatever we want. Without net neutrality companies could charge package deals for different things you do. Like you’d pay for a social media package, a streaming package, pay for access to certain sites. Just imagine if instead of paying rent for your whole home you had to pay for each room individually. That’s what it would be like. It would completely change the way we experience the internet & give corporations & the government more control over it. Say goodbye to open internet.
This should be particularly upsetting for people who make their money through the internet. Whether you’re an artist, internet personality, entrepreneur, or freelancer, your business will be effected. Bloggers & online outlets really should be concerned. Not to mention how important three internet has become for students, especially those who take classes online. But there is a way to prevent net neutrality from going away.
Today is the vote. So today we have to raise our voices. Last night was a good night that saw some signs that there is still a little hope. Let’s blow up the lines to show that we will not allow greed & tyranny to rule our internet. Please call Congress at 202-759-7766. You can also text RESIST to 50409 & Resistbot will contact necessary reps for you. Just keep spreading the word & lighting up Congress at congress.org & all other spaces. For all options of resistance got to www.battleforthenet.com
We cannot allow the internet as we know it to be taken from us. We’re all too addicted. Do not remain silent & mourn the loss of our internet. Do something now! Save net neutrality before it’s too late.
