Net neutrality is going before Congress on December 14th. No public vote. They're just going to vote among themselves. The Chairman of the FCC is trying to get preferential access to the internet for larger companies such as Verizon (his former employer). If you're in SUPPORT OF NET NEUTRALITY there's still something you can do. Link, if it works: .https://www.battleforthenet.com/ Or Google: "support net neutrality" and click on "Join the Battle for Net Neutrality" and follow the prompts. I already did it. They'll first call you. I was nervous at first, but they're expecting you. Just tell them "I'm calling in support of Net Neutrality". They may ask for your name and address to make the support official, like a ballot or survey. The "Join the Battle for Net Neutrality" website will also show you where protests are happening, if you'd like to show your SUPPORT FOR NET NEUTRALITY there. I'm definitely doing that as well.
I never get involved in politics, but I feel very strongly about this. If you're reading this, the internet is probably a very big part of your life, but there are many many Americans who hardly know what the internet is (I know quite a few youngish people like that, and I'm in California. I'm sure you must know at least someone). I suspect companies like Verizon are trying to take advantage of this, and lay a precedent before too many people understand the gravity of it.
I understood Net Neutrality was in question, but had no idea a decision was going to be made so soon until I was prompted to the above website by Patreon. I'm sure most people, who are strongly in support of Net Neutrality, have no idea this is going before Congress in a couple weeks. Vinny brought it up on the Bombcast, but didn't mention any details. Perhaps it's Giantbomb's decision to not get too involved in politics, who knows? I don't blame 'em. I'm typically the same way, but feel too strongly about this to just sit back and see what happens.
