I learned about net neutrality three years ago from an online Canadian comedy crew. Unfortunately in America, net neutrality is becoming less of a laughing matter. On December 14th, 2017, the FCC will vote on keeping around this gatekeeping measure preventing companies with a lot of money from directly altering who has the fastest and most reliable Internet access.
For folks like me who don't have Internet access at home and use public Internet, the removal of net neutrality will lead to dire consequences, including not having access to many job opportunities (as more and more applications are online), colleges (same scenario), and our finances as more banks go "paperless." For me, the Internet is directly related to access to resources like what is available at my local hospital and queer support groups, items not advertised in newspapers, phonebooks, or even community buildings. Combined with no car, removing net neutrality would make taking the bus almost impossible, as bus times are not posted on bus stops outside of the capital in the state I live in.
Removing net neutrality would destroy me, my family, and my community.
