On July 12, 2017, Home Telecom along with major websites, Internet users, and online communities will come together to shine a light on the importance of Net Neutrality and encourage the FCC to keep their eye on the big picture when reviewing this policy.

Right now, the FCC has a plan to revisit Net Neutrality, which could possibly grant big companies immense control over what we see and do online. If this happens, the FCC will give companies like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T control over what we can see and do on the Internet, with the power to slow down or block websites and charge apps and sites extra fees to reach an audience.
If we lose Net Neutrality, we could soon face an Internet where some of your favorite websites are forced into a slow lane online, while deep-pocketed companies who can afford expensive new “prioritization” fees have special fast lane access to Internet users – tilting the playing field in their favor, and not necessarily in the best interest of the consumer.
But on July 12th, the Internet will come together to shine a light on the importance of Net Neutrality. Home Telecom will lift up our support of Net Neutrality along with other major websites, Internet users, and online communities. We will stand tall and show the FCC how important keeping the internet neutral is to the future.
