If you like the internet and you live in the US then it's time to write your Congressman. Unfortunately this has fallen along party lines again, with dems supporting an open internet for consumers and the GOP supporting the telecom providers. The loss of net neutrality means that ISPs can charge and regulate specific types of traffic.

Seriously, write your congressman right now. It takes just a few minutes because for now we have this open internet thingee to support that capability!

Can you imagine what would happen if one of the following scenario took place:

Your local water provider decides to start charging you based on how you use your water. Water used for lawns and outdoor use is $1 / gallon. Bathing is $2 / gallon and using it to drink or cook with is $5 / gallon. They say they are "adding value" but in the end it's just the same thing: filtered water.

Unless you have the ability to dig a well, you don't have a choice in "water carriers". You just have to suck it up, so to speak.

With the recent loss of Net Neutrality this same scenario WILL be played out by your ISP. Want to stream Netflix? That'll cost you extra. Your Roku player is stuttering all the time? Get the "Roku player plan" for an extra $20 / month. Want to listen to Pandora without gaps in the playlist? That's gonna cost you extra.

Cable carriers enjoy a monopoly in most areas when they serve as an ISP. They need to be reclassified as common carriers by the FCC.

If you're in the US, write your congressman today and insist they make sure ISPs get classified as common carriers that can't discriminate against the data they provide.

What if an intelligent, educated person from 1914 suddenly jumped forward in time to 2014? Would they view us as smart? Excellent article in the New Yorker about this scenario.
