*** PLEASE CALL GUYS! ***
Every call helps, we can’t let the FCC take away our protection to a fair and open internet. This WILL affect YOU in major ways!
*Using your G-mail account is now a 3$ monthly surcharge since you aren’t using a Verizon email service.
*Google itself will be throttled because In a buyout this year they now own Yahoo! And why would they want you using a competitors service when you can use their own service?
*Netflix is now a 5$ a month surcharge since Comcast doesn’t own Netflix and would rather you use Hulu since they own a 30% share of through NBC-universal.
*Buying any movie tickets not on fandango is blocked by Comcast since they own fandango.
HOW CAN I HELP?

You can also use this to help you contact your house and congressional reps. It's easy to use and cuts down on the transaction costs with writing a letter to your reps
Also check this out, which was made by the EFF and is a low transaction cost tool for writing all your reps in one fell swoop.
Most importantly, VOTE. This should not be something that is so clearly split between the political parties as it affects all Americans, but unfortunately it is.
Some of the bottom text was thefted from /u/NetNeutralityBot. One best bots ever.

What can anyone do from South Africa
Runawayted20 karma2017-11-22 07:10:19 UTC
I am wondering the same thing. Is there anything to stop our isps from doing the same? Could we end up paying more for streaming services and also be effected? I feel like this is a world war on the Internet and we need to step up as well.
root_su22 karma2017-11-22 07:17:24 UTC
Show your support via social media. I am doing the same. Promoting the cause, spreading awareness in your country, and making sure this stays out of your own country. You can also donate to the organizations which are battling for net neutrality

What if you aren't in the US?
Edit: What can I do if I live outside of the US?
newboy97108 karma2017-11-22 06:52:12 UTC
Came here to ask this. I’m not American. Should I care and if so, how can I help?
root_su151 karma2017-11-22 06:56:39 UTC
Even I am not from US, but we still need to care about this. Countries look at laws and practices in other countries as references. Companies does the same. The biggest impact that FCC's decision on your country could be that your ISP's are influenced by it. They might try this in your country as well.

Question: I am german, and thus assume that i am not allowed to call a congressman or participate in any of these petitions. Is there anything i can do?
EDIT: Found https://www.savetheinternet.com/sti-home
This petition is international.
root_su17 karma2017-11-22 07:00:29 UTC
Show your support via social media. I am doing the same.
sam4ritan6 karma2017-11-22 07:03:42 UTC
Then i guess my upvotes and a tweet no one reads will have to suffice. Not using much social media....
root_su7 karma2017-11-22 07:06:16 UTC
Well, you can still promote the cause, spreading awareness in your country, and making sure this stays out of your own country. You can also donate to the organizations which are battling for net neutrality.
wxsted12 karma2017-11-22 06:56:18 UTC
As a non American, is there anything I can do to help you guys out? I feel that you may be first but that it won't be too long until we have similar proposals in Europe.
root_su8 karma2017-11-22 06:57:31 UTC
Use Social media. Show your support via tweets, facebook posts. :)

What can I do from outside the US? I don't live there but I want to help out if I can.
root_su1 karma2017-11-22 07:24:48 UTC
Show your support via social media. Promoting the cause, spreading awareness in your country, and making sure this stays out of your own country. You can also donate to the organizations which are battling for net neutrality. Also please you can do is to pay attention to who you put into office, and make make people more aware of the issue so that they can do the same.
PS- I am doing the same thing myself.
Chronic_Samurai-6 karma2017-11-22 06:45:33 UTC
What is the point of spamming this crap website? Is it just a way to collect phone numbers to later spam them with scam robocalls for extending their car warranty or to "reactivate" their social security number as a guise to steal identities?
root_su1 karma2017-11-22 06:47:13 UTC
Its totally ok if you don't want to register here but please call your representative and tell them that you support net neutrality.
