On December 14, the FCC voted to end Net Neutrality. But Congress can act to overrule the FCC and make Net Neutrality the law of the land.
The main provisions of the former neutrality rules included a ban on the blocking of websites, a ban on the slowing of websites, and a ban on “paid prioritization,” or the ability of internet providers to speed up certain websites in exchange for money. So, right now, internet providers are allowed to block websites, slow down traffic, and charge providers more to speed up traffic to certain websites.

A majority of Americans, across the political spectrum, support Net Neutrality, and many members of Congress—Democrats and Republicans—have called for Congress to act. Senator Chuck Schumer has even promised to force a Senate vote on Net Neutrality early this year.
Call your senators and tell them. “Please pass legislation to return to Net Neutrality.” 844-241-1141.
