“Slow Down” Your Website Tomorrow for Net Neutrality

slow down website for net neutrality

Net neutrality is the idea that ISPs and governments should treat all Internet data equally. Net neutrality is about democracy, and is essential to the future and growth of the global Internet. This idea is under attack by the FCC and telecom giants like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon, who will have the ability to speed up, slow down, and block traffic, all while charging users more for less services.

Tonight at 12 AM EST, Internet giants like Netflix, Mozilla, Kickstarter, Etsy, and Reddit will bring awareness to net neutrality for 24 hours by showing a slow-loading graphic similar to the one above. It will include an option to sign a citizen letter to keep net neutrality.

You and your website can get in on the activism as well, if you have a Wordpress blog. Rumor has it that Wordpress will make the loading icon available to all bloggers late tonight, early tomorrow. If you choose to use this, visitors to your website will see only the icon, until they sign or decline the letter, then the rest of the blog will appear.
