With the very real danger of major Internet Service Providers providing "fast" and "slow" lanes for users, we all need to be aware of efforts and with ways to prevent this. On September 10, 2014, there was a "slowdown protest which produced great results! We need more of these!

More Than 10,000 Websites Take Part in "Internet Slowdown"

Washington, DC -- More than 10,000 websites took part in Wednesday's "Internet Slowdown," a one-day effort to support stronger net neutrality protections, according to event organizers Demand Progress, Engine Advocacy, Fight for the Future and the Free Press Action Fund. Several high-profile companies, including Twitter, Netflix and Tumblr, took part in the effort, adding a spinning icon to their websites, representing a slow-loading Internet. The icon linked to a series of actions to members of Congress, the White House and the FCC. Organizers also said that people shared the spinning icon on Facebook more than 1.1 million times, with nearly 2.2 million emails sent to Congress. The protest aimed to prevent Internet providers from being able to create "fast lanes" that would allow companies to pay for faster access to their sites.
