International Day for Net Neutrality

July 12, 2017 was International Day for Net Neutrality in an attempt to thwart the so-called Restoring Internet Freedom Order which in fact gave telecommunication giants freedom to control content, loading time, and create fast and slow lanes in the Internet.

Despite general outcry, the Order was passed and became law. On March 8, 2019, however, the Save the Internet Act was presented to the House and passed on April 10. Its fate in the Senate is not assured.

I am reinstating International Day for Net Neutrality and urge readers in the United States to contact their Senators.

I looked at many articles researching this post. These are two of the most helpful.
