Life in the slow lane

Friend -- Who doesn't like stumbling on a bunch of adorable kittens when they open up an email? But if this administration has their way, some .gifs might take forever to load, or even worse, might not show up at all. This is much more serious than just funny .gifs, though -- rolling back net neutrality protections is a threat to the internet as we know it. The internet has always been protected by the concept of net neutrality. That means that every American has equal access to a free and open internet. It means your content has never been slowed down or blocked because of where it's coming from. Right now, big telecommunications companies can't prioritize certain content or sites, put some web sites in a slow lane, or charge you more to access streaming videos, books, sports scores, or search engines. Rolling back Obama-era net neutrality protections would harm consumers, and hand a major win to giant internet service providers. We can't let that happen -- speak up right now and urge the FCC to keep the internet open and fair: my.ofa.us/Protect-Net-Neutrality Thanks, Nick Nick Catalano Chief Technology Officer Organizing for Action
This administration wants to turn the internet over to huge telecom corporations - we can't let that happen.
