Save The Internet!

Lately I’ve been thinking about the subject of internet neutrality. I’ve heard about it here and there but was never really sure what it meant. The way I understand it, AT&T and some other big internet providers are trying to make themselves the gatekeepers of the internet. The job of the internet providers is to move information back and forth between you and the web, but the rule is they can’t mess with it along the way. If they get what they want the internet will be like television. The providers will be allowed to sensor the content that passes through them. They will also charge you a high rate for your site to load at normal speed. You can also pay nothing and have your site load very slowly. We must fight for our freedom! Sign the petition and join the other 2 million people who are willing to work to keep their rights safe.

Save the internet.
