“Net neutrality is the principle that Internet providers like Comcast & Verizon should not control what we see and do online. In 2015, startups, Internet freedom groups, and 3.7 million commenters won strong net neutrality rules from the US Federal Communication Commission (FCC). The rules prohibit Internet providers from blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization—”fast lanes” for sites that pay, and slow lanes for everyone else.”
Our Internet is in danger. Our cellphones costs are in danger. My Etsy shop and Website are in danger.
If the FCC gets its way in getting rid of net neutrality on December 14, your Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will monitor your traffic and:
- not allow you to go to certain websites
- the ISPs will add additional charges to go to Google, Etsy, Facebook, etc.
- Netflix will be affected
- streaming services will be affected
- cell phone services (connecting to the Internet will be affected)

You can see members of congress who sold us out https://www.reddit.com/
The cable companies will have more control over us, and raise prices even more.
Please sign the petition and do your research and make your voice heard.
Our freedoms are being taken away and once again, the middle class is being overrun.
We are Americans. Please do not take our freedoms away!
