The Day The Internet Died - A Sneak Peak At The Repealing Of Net Neutrality

Out of all the inventions and leaps we took as mankind, there was never one more amazing than that of the Internet. Allowing anyone anywhere to find information and connect with people halfway across the planet is truly awe-inspiring, and us as society has come to use it as a part of everyday life. For the most part, the Internet was free, save for a monthly payment you would pay your Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and no matter what you do, no one can tell you what you can or cannot search for, with every website running at the exact same speed for maximum equality. This is what is known as Net Neutrality.

Recently, however, there are certain companies under the Trump Administration that are voting to repeal Net Neutrality for the sake of financial gain. The Federal Communications Commission (or the FCC) and leader chairman Ajit Pai wish to make certain sites run more faster than before and allowing websites that are insignificant (I.E. FusFoo.com, for instance) run at the speed of Internet Explorer. On top of that, the FCC also are going to allow the ISPs to monitor the sites you are exploring and charge you more money when applicable. There are some scenarios that ISPs can charge you $30 plus Internet packages for everyday apps such as YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, and more.

Unless we have your support, the FCC will vote to take away Net Neutrality on December 14th, 2017. Please take some time and go onto www.battleforthenet.com and submit and call Congress to get this vote rejected. We do not have much time, and we must let them know that this is NOT okay!

Greetings and salutations! My name is Gabriel Howard, and I am a senior in Stroudsburg High School. I’m probably the most extravagant and outgoing person you will ever meet, and I am SUPER excited to be apart Fusfoo! I am a writer at heart, so I hope to bring in stories that could really entertain or inform you! :)
