I don't know if you've heard this on the news or not. Perhaps you have and didn't pay much attention. I didn't. And even now that I am outraged by it after reading and researching for the last two hours I'm not sure anything can be done to stop it.
In a nutshell the FCC with Tom Wheeler at it's lead wants to change the rules to do away with existing Net Neutrality on the Internet. What does that really mean? Well it means that big companies like AT&T, Time Warner, Comcast, Verizon, Cox and Charter can legally extort monies from large companies to be in the "fast lane" while leaving small business and individuals woefully behind.
I'd like to ask for about half an hour of your day. It will take about 15 minutes to watch the video which explains it all in a humors way. (Even though it's not really funny at all) and perhaps another 15 minutes to create your comment and file it will the FCC. You actually have to create and upload a document or .pdf as opposed to just "typing" your comment on the government's FCC website.
You can go here to upload your statement/comment. The proceedings number is 14-28 (Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet) You can read the 120,000 (approximate number when I filed my comment) at FCC.gov/comments. It's important for Net Neutrality to remain. No super highway for the folks with money while the rest of us are left on dirt road in the dust.
America we have to stop this from happening. Only approximately 120,000 people have voiced this opinion on this matter. It's once again big government slipping something past us while we aren't paying much attention and the results could be devastating for our websites and businesses. Go and voice your opinion, then share this with your friends, hell share it with you enemies. Get the word out before the days are up and the FCC looks at the pitiful little number of people who left a comment and says... oh well no one cares, let's just give big business what they want, again.
