This is what an Internet without net neutrality would look like.
Cable companies want to slow down (and break!) your favorite sites, for profit. They’re attacking the Internet – their one competitor and our only refuge – with plans to charge websites arbitrary fees and slow (to a crawl) any sites that won’t pay up.
If they win, the Internet dies.

Here’s how Etsy’s CEO put it in an op-ed that ran in Wired on Sunday, announcing his company’s participation:
“To be sure, the cable and phone companies are counting on our apathy. After all, businesses are often more conservative than activists and tend to not want to jump alone. But not this time. Our employees care, our communities are invested, and after months of progress, we now have a real shot at victory.”

The fight is real. The stakes are tremendous.
Do nothing and see that “spinning wheel of death” every time you try to load a page.
Or fight back for net neutrality.
