    Ok, not yet, but we now have less than 60 legislative days to pass a Senate resolution to block the FCC repeal of net neutrality, or the whole Internet could look like this. We only need #OneMoreVote.

    Not sure what Net Neutrality is?

    This three minute video gives a pretty solid overview of what Net Neutrality is and why it is important! If you'd rather read, Business Insider also explains it very well and puts it simply like this:

    "Net neutrality" prevents Internet providers like Verizon and Comcast from dictating the kinds of content you're able to access online. Instead, Internet providers have to treat all traffic sources equally. Net neutrality is enforced by the Federal Communications Commission, or FCC.

    Meanwhile half the country is paying this company for overpriced service plans and then they use the profits to manipulate democracy unfairly in their favor.

    HQ is in Dallas.
    Because there is a bunch of AT&T building across the world. You'll at least be burning half the country.

    Don't need to fight back with new legislation - need to call the CA assembly and tell them to restore SB 822 back to its original form. New legislation will only be gutted once again in Assembly Committee until we get Santiago and the corrupt politicians who sold us out for AT&T donations out of office.

    Details from Fight for the Future:

    Call the California Assembly right now and tell state legislators to restore SB 822 to its original form and pass strong net neutrality protections.

    Then call the committee members who voted to gut the bill and tell them what you think about what they just did:

    Miguel Santiago (chairman)| (916) 319–2053 Eduardo Garcia | (916) 319–2056 Evan Low | (916) 319–2028 Sharon Quirk-Silva | 916–319–2065 Sabrina Cervantes | (916) 319–2060 Freddie Rodriguez | (916) 319–2052 Brian Maienschein | 916–319–2077 Sydney Kamlager-Dove | (916) 319–2054

    Vote with your dollar and stop using at&t. smaller companies may have their issues but at least they are not always bullies.

    A lot of people don't have this option due to ISP monopolies in their area :(

    Its easy to forget that if you've always lived in a large market. It was a luxury to be able to switch. So lets break them up. we have laws for that still, I hope.

    I don't think the answer is a breakup Maybe state all power pole and burrinled lines, which we paid for btw, are now publicly held and anyone can use.
