The End of Internet Radio

Hello everybody:

I don't know if having the freedom to read the type of news and download whatever type of music you want is important to you, but it is a high priority for me. If Congress approves the Net Neutrality act, all internet blogs, message boards, websites, etc. will be treated equally and will not be discriminated against by the phone companies and internet providers. This affects me directly since I have been maintaining Eclectic Grooves for the past year and depend on blogs, message boards and other independent sites to serve as my primary source of information.

Here is an excerpt from the site about Net Neutrality that goes more in depth on the subject.

The nation's largest telephone and cable companies — including AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and Time Warner — want to be Internet gatekeepers, deciding which Web sites go fast or slow and which won't load at all.
They want to tax content providers to guarantee speedy delivery of their data. They want to discriminate in favor of their own search engines, Internet phone services, and streaming video — while slowing down or blocking their competitors.
These companies have a new vision for the Internet. Instead of an even playing field, they want to reserve express lanes for their own content and services — or those from big corporations that can afford the steep tolls — and leave the rest of us on a winding dirt road.
The big phone and cable companies are spending hundreds of millions of dollars lobbying Congress and the Federal Communications Commission to gut Net Neutrality, putting the future of the Internet at risk.

Please check the link below if you are interested in finding out more information on this and how you can make a difference by letting your congressman know that you don't want your internet freedoms taken away. There are only 3 days left to act on this, so let your voice be heard. I am going on vacation for about two weeks, so there won't be any posts during that time. Let's hope the little people win this one.
