Yes, the FCC has voted today to rollback Net Neutrality regulations, to no one’s great surprise. However, that does not mean all is lost…yet. Congress can review this egregious assault on the web and prevent it from happening by utilizing the Congressional Review act. Unfortunately, Congress only has 60 days under the CRA in which to act. Time is thus of the utmost importance here. Please continue the fight to protect the internet. Continue to reach out to your congress person. Let them know you dissent to ending Net Neutrality regulations. Let them know their reelection is dependent on listening to the will of their constituents.
Rupeethon strongly supports Net Neutrality; without it, we may be unable to bring you our particular brand of dumb, cringey entertainment. ISP providers are feverishly trying to get the FCC to remove laws and regulations that keep the internet free and open, all in order to make themselves more profitable by charging you, the consumer, for the services you already enjoy. Not only could you be hit by added fees or slowdowns to access various entertainment site you enjoy today, removing these protections could have a tremendous effect on the information and news you are able to access and consume. With a FCC director in the pockets of major corporations and the ISPs, our last hope is for congress to step in and protect a service that has become so immensely integral to our daily lives. The vote for repeal is set for Dec. 14th, 2017. Let your voices be heard; contact you congress representative today and let them know you strongly support net neutrality and a free and open interent.
