I think the FCC makes their final vote on December 12, it keeps getting delayed though so I’m not totally sure. There were some protests at Verizon stores nationwide the other day. Plus people have been writing letters and placing phone calls to Congress, you can still text 50409 resist followed by a message like SAVE NET NEUTRALITY NOW! And you will have the option of faxing your representatives immediately. Who knows if it’s too late but it never hurts to try.
The law to repeal net neutrality is deceptively called the Internet Freedom Act or something of that nature. It’s purposefully deceptive so that in passing it sounds like a good thing, but really it is freedom for internet providers to package deals and charge more.
It’s probably all happening now after the Bernie Sanders campaign because the baby boomers and the generation xers just realized how to use the internet. It sucks because now the high ups want to close it all down and operate more like China or Russia apparently. Keep us ignorant. Small businesses will suffer because they’ll lose a vital service, like online delivery or free/cheep advertising. Indie films and news services will suffer, in fact my blog will suffer! Videogames will suffer because even fewer people will be able to afford high speed internet. But it will close a major internet highway just as the government wants. Hopefully it won’t pass, pups crossed.
