Net Neutrality . Help save it!

Recommended Posts

Got this email from FFTF

“Tomorrow, net neutrality is being stolen from you.And we have a warrant out for each and every House of Representatives member that has yet to sign to force a vote to reinstate net neutrality rules. 

Right now the Internet is dying because there are no net neutrality rules in place, but the fight is not over.

Join the protest tomorrow by sharing our wanted posters and using them as your social media avatar/profile pic. Let your representatives know that they are wanted and we want our net neutrality back.

We’ve already won in the Senate, now we need to shine a spotlight on every member of the House of Representatives that has taken the free and open Internet from us by not signing the discharge petition that would have stopped the FCC’s repeal from going into effect tomorrow.

With midterm elections coming up, lawmakers will be feeling vulnerable. This is the perfect moment to put pressure on House lawmakers. There is still time for Congress to overturn the FCC’s repeal and reinstate net neutrality rules through the Congressional Review Act (CRA).

This is the start of the Net Neutrality Summer Offensive! Here’s how you can help: 

Change your social media avatars/profile pics and share our wanted posters to let your representatives know that they are wanted and we want our net neutrality back. 

If you haven’t yet, contact your representative.

If you run a website, use our updated widget to let your users contact Congress without ever leaving your site. You can see a demo here.

If you make videos, consider making a video about net neutrality, or use our simple video bumper to help spread the word. 

Always link back to BattleForTheNet.comwhenever you can so your friends, followers, and users can easily contact their lawmakers. 

Now is the time to put our outrage and energy toward effective actions! Please forward this email to everyone who can help spread the word. “

Just a reminder to keep the pressure on as the fights not done yet. There are some links on the FFTF’s site you can use to help spred the message if you want. Still hard to believe tomorrow our protections are gone...

So with Comcast bidding to buy Fox and AT&T merging with Time Warner, how concerned should we be with these moves in regards to the Internet and restrictions?

Well considering that these things only happened the day after Net Neutrality was officially gutted. There is room to believe that the Major ISP buying out and merging with others is all part of a bigger plan to prevent us from getting altierior options and make it so they are the only one's we can go to for internet to trap us in their 'pay for the services you want' scheme. Though none of this will be rolled out immediately, especially since there are still court cases in regards to suing the FCC for repealing Net Neutrality.

In fact. Comcast is one that still has to abide by Net Neutrality till September, I think.

Here is a video on that.

Also:

It turns out the 'DDoS attack' that the FCC claims that happened last year was not even the case. There was high traffic from supporters of Net Neutrality that accidentally caused the crash. The FCC decided announce that they chalk it up to a 'DDoS attack' to hide the fact that they really didn't want to bring the site back up untill the vote to repeal Net Neutrality happened.

If it couldn't get any worse. Now a guy in the FCC, Ajit Pai's lie guy David Brea, created a conspiracy that indicates that the 2014 crash of the FCC website, which had a very similar case of people flocking to support net neutrality, is now being marked as a DDoS attack. Even though the previous Head Chairman Tom Wheeler openly admitted to being a fault in the outdated programming of the site. This lie about the 2014 crash is to make the FCC look good and to make them look like the victims.

Got an email regarding net neutrality and how apparently companies are already taking advantage of its death:

 Comcast is throttling videos and personal hotspots on plans that are supposed to be unlimited.1 AT&T quietly increased its fees for no justifiable reason.2 And as long as Big Cable has free rein to violate our Internet freedom, this is just the beginning.

if this is true and in direct correlation to net neutrality’s removal, damn, it’s pretty ballsy  of these companies to be acting this fast. I thought they’d be going at a more subtle pace where nobody takes real notice. I really hope we’re able to do something about this...

Considering Comcast legally is still under contract to follow Net Neutrality law till September, them doing this will definitely get them a lot of unwanted bad attention.
