Net neutrality prevents companies from controlling and limiting how we use and access the internet
Example: If you have Comcast you have to use the sites Comcast pushes or pay a fine to access sites they don’t want you to use and they will throttle speeds on websites they don’t own to drive traffic to their own sites.
It’s a massive censorship issue and really affects any American players as it could end up meaning you have to pay more or be unable to access things like YouTube, reddit, Wikipedia, these forums or Eve itself depending on how it really pans out.
Sign this, it has options to call congress too as well as tweet and pester your state reps to try and do something to stop it.
Background for any Americans who aren’t aware net neutrality is boomeranging back around again and large isps and companies have used a massive bot net to dupe the fcc comments system which chairman ajit pai is citing as support for repealing net neutrality.
The fcc has refused to assist an investigation into almost one million stolen identities to make the comments and on the 14th of December the fcc is scheduled to have a vote and repeal net neutrality along party lines.
3 republicans for repeal, 2 Democrats against.
Ajit pai the chairman is also a former Verizon executive that is the third vote to repeal in this situation.
It’s bad for consumers and anyone who enjoys the internet should be staunchly against this repeal or any deregulation that lets companies control the internet.
You already see notices popping up on websites like Reddit, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, even P***hub.
