The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) may be on the verge of a huge mistake that would hand over the internet to the 1%.
On May 15, the FCC will consider a rule that would create a new “pay-to-play” fast lane which would allow big corporations to pay an extra fee to get their content prioritized to users. Independent, grassroots sites like World Pulse and our own individual sites would be left to suffer in an internet slow lane.
Please ladies, this could be the greatest threat to our online connectivity of all the challenges we face! Sign the petition to save Net neutrality by urging the FCC to scrap their horrible "pay-to-play" proposal HERE
Let’s be clear—this isn’t about better service of streaming video or faster broadband speeds. This is about broadband providers being able to create another way to make additional profit from charging more for access to the internet without any new investment to expand service or speed.
This would lead to more corporate sponsorship and control over the internet, which would lead to grassroots, independent sites being relegated to the slow lane.
This goes against everything that is great about the internet. Please sign the petition to save Net neutrality by urging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to abandon this dangerous proposal.
