There is a Call to Action from the Tech Community for Net Neutrality.

This isn't about government or private sector or anything. It appears to be a noble attempt to request correction of a court decision allowing business to interrogate and modify your traffic for their own purposes versus your intentions in your use.

FYI

We should NOT have expected Internet users to benefit. We all object to any country putting the clamps of individual internet use. Well, the corporations say they should be the ones deciding what they will allow you to use over the wire that you pay for.

Results of our future is now becoming apparent; This just the "tip of the iceberg".

You wont be able to appeal to FCC where they step in and fix things. It now requires laws to enforce good balanced behavior.

Time to start petitioning your lawmakers (known as Congressional Representatives...you know...the ones responsible for laws that benefit the people)

FYI

I have long held the view that the era of the nation state was coming to its end. Nations are based on control of an area with physical boundaries. Multinational corporations and the internet are things of no fixed location. The boundaries are around product lines etc for corporations and around communities of similar interests for the internet. I think we should not assume that the government of one nation will ultimately be able to control what happens. It is more likely that an organization that is not of a fixed location will be able to win out in the long run. Thus I suggest that not just the government of the US should be being asked to do what is right. Those in other nations should ask their governments to join in protecting the rights of everyone.

This is really a request. You'll understand at the end.

Net neutrality NOW involves your cell network phones. Here's why...

And if you think that's just it, review this where if you do something, it will count.

Hope this helps

This is one of the unsatisfactory aspects of using the internet for communication - censorship and throttling are so easy for the providers to do - regardless of whether or not you have paid for premium service.

At least in the old days of using plain old telephone lines you knew you had the line to yourself. Internet lines are effectively "party lines" and your own data packets can be treated as second class citizens relative to other peoples data packets - depending on the whim of the connection provider.

It's pretty hard to run a business when you really have no control over the stability and quality of the internet link you are paying for. I'm really surprised that ISPs are getting away with this.

Would Toyota get away with selling a car that intermittently and unpredictably slowed down and pulled over to the side of the road whenever Toyota felt like it?

Probably.
