The chairman of the FCC is very likely to announce a vote to gut neutrality, possibly as soon as this week. Once a vote is called, it will become much, much harder to stop ISPs such as Comcast, DirecTV, Time Warner/Spectrum, and others, from charging us all extra fees to access streaming services like YouTube, Netflix, iTunes, -- and they can demand payment from independent artists and labels, stifling independent voices.
The #fccplan will:
1. End Title II protections and erase the three Net Neutrality rules passed at the FCC in 2015 and upheld in court last year.
2. Legalize internet blocking and discrimination by Comcast, AT&T and Verizon, no questions asked.
3. Permit throttling back the speeds of different kinds of websites and apps.
4. Encourage paid prioritization — sticking most sites and apps in the slow lane and reserving the fast lane for the few wealthy companies that can afford special treatment.

or dial 202-930-8550 to call your representative. "What do I tell them? "
When you get through to your Rep's office, introduce yourself, be polite, and say: I support Title Two net neutrality rules and I urge you to oppose the FCC's plan to repeal them. Specifically, I'd like you to contact the FCC Chairman and demand he abandon his current plan." These are the five people deciding the future of the internet.
The two women have come out as No votes. We need only to convince ONE of the other members to flip to a No vote to save Net Neutrality.
