Your internet connection might slow down after December 14th.
On that day, the FCC will vote on Ajit Pai’s proposal to reverse Title II in the Communication Act. Title II ensures that the government monitors all ISPs, so they cannot throttle your connection or charge you more money. If Ajit Pai’s plan passes, then internet providers will be able to block or slow down whatever websites they choose.
This could potentially cause a lot of websites to lose traffic and revenue, and it changes the freedom of the internet.
Since only five people on the FCC can vote (and there’s a good chance that the three Republicans will vote for Pai’s plan), it’s up to the public to stop it. We protested for net neutrality back in July, and now we’ll do it again.
We know there’s a lot of information flying around, so to sum it up, we created this awesome infographic. Help us spread the word on net neutrality and join the protest. https://www.vpnmentor.com/blog/save-date-save-net-neutrality/
