**UPDATE: on Dec. 14, 2017 by a vote of 3-2 Net Neutrality was 'voted out'. Based on the vote, there will be a change on how streaming and other internet options may be received, of course there will likely be court battles before this fully goes in to effect.**
On December 14, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission will be voting on Net Neutrality. If Net Neutrality is voted out, then we will begin to hinder the advancement of our children in the world of technology. You can sign petitions and speak to your neighbors, but the greatest impact will be to contact the FCC and go on record. Below is their contact information and the comment that I sent to them today. Please be heard and speak up this week.
FCC 1-888-225-5322 or http://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express regarding Proceeding number 17.108
My comment was as follows:
"In order for the citizens of US to continue advancing in technology, it is pertinent to allow all Americans the SAME access to the internet without 'slicing and dicing' it into various portions that require higher payments for faster speeds. Many of our children in public schools are provided chrome books and I-pads in order to do their school work at home and if they are not allowed internet access as it currently stands, then we are only pushing them further behind other countries. Please leave the net neutrality in place. The corporations can make their money elsewhere. Do not let the vast majority of the children suffer because our current administration wants to focus more on corporate America than its American working citizens."
