[Redesign] Don't Throttle Me by vexilografia

Today, DeviantArt has joined hundreds of other sites across the Web to fight for net neutrality, but we need your help!

Net neutrality protects open and equal access to the Internet. Without it, Internet Service Providers — like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon (among others) — could begin to charge extra fees, engage in economic censorship, and control what we see and do on the Web by throttling sites, apps, and other online services.

Why is this important? On December 14th, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will vote to gut the protections for net neutrality.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

  • Call or write your Congress person and demand that they stop the FCC from gutting net neutrality. Call and write to congress.
  • Share messages on all of your social accounts begging people to join the protest now. There is no time to waste.
  • (NOW OVER) Protest on December 7 at a Verizon store near you. verizonprotests.com

Glad it is gone, the internet should never be placed in the hands of the government.
We need an internet Bill of Rights, not SOPA-- I mean Net Neutrality.

I'm officially confused on the status on net neutrality. Is it saved? Is it dead? Am I losing my head? Can anyone tell me what's going on?

Whatever the powers that be were REALLY doing while they dangled this net neutrality topic in front of us has probably been accomplished so they have stopped actively keeping it in the media. ;D
