Boring but REALLY important: Net Neutrality
Ending net neutrality would change purchasing internet services into bundles of products: Netflix and Hulu as buy-ups. It’s time to contact your federal representatives!
Here's what I wrote to Franken, Klobuchar, and Ellison:
I am writing to you to ask for your continued help in maintaining internet “net neutrality.” The internet is a powerful tool that has brought immense change to our society – and my note to you today. It has become a public utility and should be treated as such. Imagine if…
- Electric companies could charge different rates for powering TV’s versus a dryer.
- Water companies could charge different rates for lawn irrigation versus daily showers.
- Natural gas companies could charge different rates for heating versus cooking.
I maintain a small website for a group of (suddenly) politically motivated friends and neighbors www.groupemn.org – not very large at all. Slicing up the internet could cut off access to our fans and supporters.
Thank you for your service and continued help.
And for FaceBook:
