URGE FLORIDA CONGRESSMEN TO VOTE FOR NET NEUTRALITY
This petition had 65,785 supporters
This petition is aimed at the multiple representatives, and one senator in the state of Florida, who voted to open the door for ISPs to sell customer data in a recent election.
Consumer awareness is on the rise, especially as the vote for Net Neutrality draws near (within the next month.) As many know, the state of Florida holds one of the strongest voices in congress, and the votes of the representatives in our 27 districts are not taken lightly. 15 of our 27 Representatives voted in favor of an act similar to the repeal of Net Neutrality, which arguably infringed upon the personal rights of consumers. We can predict, both from their voting patterns, and the hearty compensation they receive from the telecom industry, that the Representatives this petition hopes to appeal to will vote in favor of the repeal of Net Neutrality as instated by Chairman Pai.
If Net Neutrality were to be repealed, "ISPs would have the power to block websites, slow them down, give some sites an advantage over others, split the Internet into "fast lanes" for companies that pay and "slow lanes" for the rest, (and could) force (you) to buy special "tiers" to access the sites and services (you) choose." (Cred)
For a full disclosure of what exactly your congressmen are voting for, read the entire repeal here.
This being said, I urge you, as citizens of Florida to both write to the representatives of your district, and to write to Sen. Marco Rubio, and make sure they're taking the ethical stance on Net Neutrality.
Thank you for your time, and support.
