Large ISPs have been fighting to gut the regulations of net neutrality for years. On December 14th, the fighting may end. And it won’t end in a way that’s good for either consumers or freedom.

It’s the latest reason to hate your provider.

What the Net Neutrality Fight is All About

On the surface, the battle is about money. And you know what? If it were just about money, then it wouldn’t be so scary.

If the visible effects of losing net neutrality are scary, the invisible effects are downright terrifying.

It’s one thing to have to pay more for Netflix or Sling streaming television, it’s another thing to only view the news that pays the most money for being delivered.

Liberals, imagine only being able to find news that’s approved by President Trump. Conservatives, imagine every piece of news on the Internet being controlled by Hillary Clinton.

Do you trade stocks online? What if only the wealthiest people are able to get up to date information on stock prices?

Net Neutrality Could Cost us our Freedom

It’s not just a fear mongering thing. These are real dangers to our society. We’re already very limited in the information we receive. Fight back. Now.
