As a disclaimer: you could say I have a personal stake in this, I do have a company that provides online training materials. We don’t want to pay more to have traffic routed our way–we just want the playing field to be equal.
But it isn’t just me or my little company; this could affect all of your browsing. All your blogging. All your information. It could be clouded by $$$.
From the Kos Diary by Matt Stoller:
Here’s what to say. Urge them to support the bipartisan Sensenbrenner-Conyers Net Neutrality bill (HR 5417) in the Judiciary Committee on Thursday — and to support it without amendment. Saying without amendment is key.
Here is a pdf of the letter from the CWA to Sensenbrenner. I read it, and it tries to play with the word “neutrality” but misuses the concept completely, while nearly threatening to withhold broadband from many Americans.
Please urge your reps on this. Join people like Tim Berners-Lee, an inventor of the web, in calling for Net Neutrality. We need unfiltered information, now more than ever.
