Step 2 to Save Net Neutrality – Sign the Petition “Save Net Neutrality” on Change.org

Similar step as step one head over to Change.org and sign up for the Net Neutrality Petition.

What I find interesting about this petition is that Change.org, who runs a petition platform started this petition.The Net Neutrality issue is one that actually threatens the mission of Change.org:

“Making sure that people everywhere have the tools to make their voices heard.”

Please support equal and fair access to the Internet.

Step 3 to Save Net Neutrality – Submit a Filing to the FCC

The FCC vote on Net Neutrality might be already decided, but there is a possibility that this issue could make its way back to the government agency.

A Filing to the FCC is a good way to express your support towards Net Neutrality and other open internet laws.

Just go to this website. Under Proceeding(s) write “17-108″ and then fill out the rest of the form with your information. In the comments box at the bottom write that you support Net Neutrality and Title 2 oversight of ISPs.

Go to the FCC

Step 4 to Save Net Neutrality – Email the FCC Leadership

Email (yes bombarding should also help) the leaders of the FCC to show that you support Net Neutrality.

Here are the email addresses:

  • Michael O’Rielly, Commissioner – Mike.O‘Rielly@fcc.gov

Step 5 to Save Net Neutrality – Join a protest or event in your area.

Step 6 to Save Net Neutrality – Tweet Donald Trump

This is actually one of my favorite. I doubt that Donald Trump actually read your tweet but if several hundred/thousand people would send tweets out it would create more awareness. Give it a go if you have a twitter just copy this tweet and send it out:

Dear @realDonaldTrump have #netneutralty on your agenda. Big topic!🚨 For all the others write congress https://www.battleforthenet.com/ & follow these steps https://vpnpioneer.com/net-neutrality/ help to #SaveNetNeutrality and #stopfcc

Even Julian Assange had a similar idea:

What is Net Neutrality? Why Does It Matter to Me?

For quick understanding take a look at the info graphic below:

As you can see we have at the moment Net Neutrality. Internet service providers like Verizon, AT&T or Comcast treat all content that is going through their servers, cables and cell towers equally. This means they are not able to decide that some data should end up in “fast lanes” and/or blocking, discriminating or slowing other data.

For example ISP (Internet Service Provider) shouldn’t be able to block you from accessing a service like Spotify, Skype or smaller Websites. In addition to blocking they could slow down Video streaming websites like Netflix or Youtube in order to encourage you to buy a more expensive “entertainment package”.

Advertisement of the Future. The Internet without Net Neutrality!

Take a look at the image below. That could be an advertisement of the Future in a world without Net Neutrality.

Net neutrality is crucial to keep the internet an open playing field for innovation. If internet service provider are allowed to pick favorite companies/web sites, new websites and technologies will have a hard time to grow. (Monopolization)

If internet providers would have blocked or limited download speed for video streaming websites in the mid 2000s. There is a good chance we would not have Youtube or Netflix today.

Net Neutrality is Crucial for Freedom of Speech

Net Neutrality is also important for the Freedom of Speech. If a small amount of large companies controls the internet service market, they receive power over what you will see in the search results and even what content you are allowed to access. This puts an enormous amount of power into the hands  of these corporations with the possibility to suppress critical views and other Opinions. A website like mine you might only be able to see if you have purchased a certain package.

That’s why it is critical that you take action as I have written in this blog post! Start at step 1 and help to keep the web net neutral!

Best Google Alternatives That Keep Your Privacy

In this blog post I will show you the best alternatives to Google products (Google search, Gmail, Chrome Browser and Google Drive ).

Google is unquestionably being the best search engine out there makes use of powerful and intelligent searching method to let the users get the best out of a search engine with a personalized experience. This sounds good until a user start to live in a comfort zone. When a user starts seeing everything that ‘suits a user’s taste’, he get detached from the reality. Too much of anything is not good and too much personalization is harmful as well. This is why one should get out of this zone and see the world as it is.

A user knows that Google sure as hell tracks a lot of information about their connection, the system when he performs a search and takes an action within the search engine or use its other services such as Gmail.

Top 5 Google Search Alternatives

So, if Google keeps on tracking a user, the simple answer would be to stop using Google for searching the web. But what would a user use in place of Google? Microsoft’s Bing is not a right option either. So, to address the natives concerned about their privacy while using a search engine, here is a list of privacy oriented alternative search engines to Google.

The best of some privacy oriented alternative search engines to Google are:

Searx.me

Searx is a very privacy friendly and resourceful search engine.

DuckDuckGo

This is a great privacy friendly Google alternative that doesn’t utilize tracking or targeted ads. They also have a zero-sharing policy with other features.

StartPage

Gmail is one of the worst products a user can use if he is concerned about privacy. Every email, attachment, and image becomes legal property of Google.
