Protect Net Neutrality

In a matter of hours, the Republican-lead Federal Communications Commission (the FCC) is scheduled to vote on the repeal of Obama-era net neutrality protections, which passed in 2015 with the intention of keeping an open and free internet. The repeal would give less regulatory control over the internet and allow for corporate entities to charge higher prices for internet depending on what sites you’re accessing. Talk about pay for play.

Under the FCC new rules, the FCC would eliminate “rules barring internet providers from blocking or slowing down access to online content.” The FCC would also kill a rule “barring providers from prioritizing their own content.”
