The FCC wants to destroy net neutrality and give big cable companies control over what we see and do online. If they get their way, theyll allow widespread throttling, blocking, censorship, and extra fees. On July 12th, the Internet will come together to stop them.

WHAT IS NET NEUTRALITY?
Net neutrality is the basic principle that protects our free speech on the Internet. "Title II" of the Communications Act is what provides the legal foundation for net neutrality and prevents Internet Service Providers like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from slowing down and blocking websites, or charging apps and sites extra fees to reach an audience (which they then pass along to consumers.)

WHY IS NET NEUTRALITY IMPORTANT?
The Internet has thrived precisely because of net neutrality. It's what makes it so vibrant and innovative. A place for creativity, free expression, and exchange of ideas. Without net neutrality, the Internet will become more like Cable TV, where the content you see is what your provider puts in front of you.

Had this pop up a few times today, I just ignored it and closed it down as I thought it was just one of those annoying pop ups. Now I understand , I need to get signing!
