Today, Netflix, Etsy, Kickstarter, Meetup, reddit, Upworthy, Vimeo, Wordpress and a number of other websites are participating in Internet Slowdown Day. While the internet isn’t really slowing down today, the websites are mimicking what would happen if it did, by placing spinning pinwheel loading images on their site. The campaign is aimed to raise awareness about the fight for net neutrality.
NPR provides a quick review of the issue:
What is net neutrality all about?
The principle generally means that content isn’t prioritized above others, so that a user can go where he wants and do what he wants on the Internet without the interference of his broadband provider. Supporters of net neutrality protections say that without the rules, Internet service providers like Comcast and Time Warner will have economic incentives to charge content providers, such as Netflix, for “faster lanes” to get to you, the consumer. And that Netflix will have to pay up, because regulations are needed to say, “Comcast, you can’t do that.”
What can I do if I want to weigh in?
Already, more than one million comments were sent into the FCC about this issue, the most of any rule-making measure in the agency’s history. The vast majority of the comments supported stricter enforcement of net neutrality.
You can still comment. Monday is the last day the public can weigh in on the process by submitting comments to the commission.
