You can help, Now!  To add your comments about this issue before it’s too late, go to this link US FCC (Federal Communications Commission) comment page.  Once there click on Express (upper right side) to add your comment (17-108 is the proceeding number).

As a blogger this is important to you.  We all depend on the Internet to fairly present our content to the world.  The rules which now require Internet Service Providers (ISP) to treat all content equally are about to be stripped away.  If the rules are stripped away that leaves it up to the various ISPs (ATT, Verizon, Comcast, etc.) to decide which content gets priority through the Internet.  Priority could be tied to who pays the ISP more to deliver content.  Or it could be tied to the ‘importance’ of the content.  Or it could be tied to, “that ISP just doesn’t like you.”  In short, what is now a fair system that operates without technical problems, can be changed to one that controls what goes over the Internet.  You’ve probably read about how that kind of control is applied in other countries.

So take a few minutes now to express your thoughts to the FCC.  I know they’ll appreciate them.

Read my submitted comments below.  This post was in response to WPC Danger!.

P.S. – As I’m about to post this, the FCC site is experiencing difficulties.  Maybe they haven’t paid their ISP?
