What is Net Neutrality?
“Net Neutrality is the internet’s guiding principle: It preserves our right to communicate freely online,”According to freepress.net. “Net Neutrality means an internet that enables and protects free speech.”
On Thursday December 14, The Federal Communications Commission will vote on Pai’s proposal which is “to undo the changes put in place by the previous FCC administration under former president Barack Obama,” according to mashable.com.
Based on a Consumer Reports survey according to statista.com, “shows, the majority of Americans support the current net neutrality rules and don’t think that ISPs should be allowed to regulate what content their customers can access.”
Influencers, senators, actors and many other people across the internet are joining the conversation of net neutrality on Twitter leading up to the vote on Thursday.

Net Neutrality is being voted on soon. I hope it works out America. Don't assume it will be fine on it's own. Do your part and help save this thing. This'll hurt online businesses and take away so much. It's super important.
Good luck. pic.twitter.com/FeFIXT0apc

Imagine a world where a massive corporation could block your trusted news source because it published a critical article. That could happen if @FCC kills #NetNeutrality. This isn’t a left-right issue, it’s a free speech issue. #SaveNetNeutrality

Critical @FCC vote coming to roll back #NetNeutrality. Working to oppose it by introducing the Save Net Neutrality Act (HR 4585), which blocks their attempt to end our free & open internet. Please ask your rep to support.
