jk. But seriously, this could happen. On Dec 14, 2017, the FCC will decide on the all-important issue of Net Neutrality (AKA Title II). If you don't know about it, there oar some resources on this page. If you are an Internet user (which if you're reading this webpage then you are) it is your duty to make your voice heard and tell the FCC that you don't want them to end the free internet as we know it.
Net Neutrality is the most important legal law of the Internet. It ensures that all data, no matter what type from what website, is treated equally. Without this law, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can (and most likely will) throttle connections to websites of thier competitors, and offer the Internet in packages that you would have to pay extra for. You can go to the FCC's website before the decision is made and leave a comment. You can also contact your representatives to tell them about how you care for Net Neutrality. Every voice makes a difference, so make sure yours is one of them!
In Portugal, with no net neutrality, internet providers are starting to split the net into packages. pic.twitter.com/TlLYGezmv6— Ro Khanna (@RoKhanna) October 27, 2017
