Don't Let Corporations Ruin the Internet
Has Netflix been slow for you lately?
A mobile-security company in Texas recently experienced major slowdowns while trying to connect to both its own website and Netflix. Why? It appears that Verizon was testing out its newly acquired powers to discriminate against certain types of online traffic.
This is just the beginning of the kinds of abuses we’re likely to see in the wake of a federal court ruling that overturned the Net Neutrality rules. Companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon have been chomping at the bit to maximize their already-bloated profit margins.
In fact, we're up against one of the best-funded industries in Washington: These companies have spent more than half-a-billion dollars on lobbyists and an additional $185 million on campaign contributions. They'll use that money to try to buy influence and get whatever they want.
And in the absence of any Net Neutrality rules, there’s nothing standing in their way.
Well, nothing except you. And us.
