#StopTheSlowLane

As The Washington Post reported, today the FCC took steps toward ending net neutrality and allowing large corporations to move ahead with "fast lane" and "slow lane" services, meaning that if companies like Amazon and Netflix fork over the cash to internet providers like Comcast, they'll be able to buy faster delivery of their content. In my opinion, this is a massive debacle that could irrevocably change the internet and force customers to pay even higher fees. It's pure greed, plain and simple. Please watch the following video and check out the link below. Then, go do your part to help protect the Internet.
