Right now, there's an important battle for the Internet taking place in the United States, that could impact all of us. The U.S. telecom regulator, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), is planning to kill the Net Neutrality rules that keep big Internet service providers from abusing their power at the expense of everyday people. We don’t have long to stop them; the final vote is on December 14.1
If Net Neutrality is lost in the U.S., it will have catastrophic consequences on Internet users worldwide. Already powerful Big Telecoms will have the power to prioritize their own content, block or limit access to sites they don't like, and carve the Internet up into packages that look just like Cable TV. It will result in some of our favourite content and services having pay extra just to convince the telecoms to let them reach us -- which means an increase fees that we'll need to absorb.
Millions of Americans have spoken up, and now it’s time for the global community to show that it matters to us too. it's time to stop the FCC’s plan.
