Add South Carolina to the list of states suing to restore Net Neutrality

This petition had 150 supporters

Net neutrality allows for the internet and its abundance of resources to be utilized by all who have access to the internet. It allows for diverse groups of  people, communities and groups to all be able to connect together in ways not previously possible. Without net neutrality affordability and even more important access is threatened by the possibility of cost becoming a barrier to many. While it is stated that net neutrality opens up access to the internet by encouraging competition that competition does not necessarily benefit all consumers, particularly those of lower income and rural communities which make up a significant portion of the state of SC. In the 21st century access to information is a vital part of the knowledge based economy and eliminating net neutrality places thousands of people in the state of South Carolina at risk for being left behind in an ever changing world. In addition to individual consumers public organizations such as public schools, libraries, colleges and universities are potentially at risk as well. As a state that currently ranks 50th in education South Carolina can not afford to fall further behind due to obstructed access to the internet and all of its resources.
