Newly released FCC draft rules will do away with net
neutrality. Currently, ISPs like Comcast or Verizon are obligated to “deliver”
all data in the order they are received, at the same speed. But under the new
rules, companies could pay ISPs extra for a “fast lane” that would give their
content priority over all those who choose not to (or don’t have the means to)
pay. ISPs would have the power to decide what content you will see quickly, and
what content will be delivered to you much more slowly. Since one in four
Internet users abandon websites that take four or more seconds to load, users
will naturally gravitate toward “fast lane” sites that deliver content more
Over time, this would also affect search engine results and
rankings. “Fast lane” sites will be pushed to the top of web searches, making
it less likely that consumers will even be able to find other content. This
could neuter the grassroots power of the Net, and be another way corporate
America rules the political system. Tell the FCC to preserve Net Neutrality and
not allow “fast lanes”!
