Please visit BattleForTheNet.com to raise hell on social media and call your congressmen by texting BATTLE to 384-387 to use BattleForTheNet’s call tool and express your concern for Net Neutrality.
The FCC just voted to gut net neutrality rules, letting Internet providers like Verizon and Comcast control what we can see and do online with new fees, throttling, and censorship. But we can still get Congress to stop this—by passing a “Resolution of Disapproval” to overturn the FCC vote. To do that, they need to hear from constituents. So, write congress and call congress by clicking this link, and BattleForTheNet will provide you with a script for the call.
At The ColinTalk Podcast, we are strong supporters of keeping the internet free and open with the current Net Neutrality regulations. Just imagine if you couldn’t listen or visit the ColinTalk Podcast anymore… For those who may not know, Net Neutrality is the concept that all Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) should treat all data and traffic on the internet fairly and equally. Net Neutrality is essentially what we have always had, which makes it hard to imagine an internet without it. Please visit Battle For The Net,Change.org, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation to speak out against Ajit Pai (the former lawyer for Verizon) and the FCC to keep Net Neutrality regulations on the Title l legal footing. No matter if you are a Democrat, Republican, or Independent, Net Neutrality is a bipartisan issue, so we need to come together to stand up for internet freedom by taking a stand against the FCC’s proposal.
Nearly everyone who understands and depends on the Internet supports net neutrality, whether they’re startup founders, activists, gamers, politicians, investors, comedians, YouTube stars, or typical Internet users who just want their Internet to work as advertised—regardless of their political party.
Here is Net Neutrality as explained by Change.org:
Do phone companies charge more for calling certain family members? Does Netflix charge extra to watch certain shows? Should you be paying more money to gain access to certain websites? No. Net Neutrality is the principle that all Internet Service Providers (ISP) should treat all data on the internet fairly and equally. There are certain ISP’s who wish to treat the internet as a premium service, where they will block, throttle, or even charge for access to certain domains. They want to force their customers to pay more in order to escape the “slow lane.” This is not how the internet should be treated. When paying for access to the internet, you should receive universal and equal access to all websites at the speed you choose to pay for. The FCC has already begun taking steps to scale back the protection net neutrality offers. Companies such as Netflix, Amazon, and Twitter have all expressed support for the current regulations to remain in place. Signing this petition will help build the momentum behind this movement and pressure the FCC Chairman, Ajit Pai, to save net neutrality! Success will lead to an open and free internet for everyone. Failure will lead to an internet full of restrictions, inefficiency, and fees for everyone. We rely on the internet more and more each day. – Change.org
