    This is a little of topic, for this I apologise, however it is a very
    important topic for which we all should monitor closly...

    "The amendment was thought to be needed after the FCC ripped up its rules
    that guaranteed net neutrality.

    During the debate House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, said that without
    the amendment telecommunications and cable companies will be able to create
    toll lanes on the information superhighway.

    This strikes at the heart of the free and equal nature of the internet, she
    added."


    Write your congressman/congresswoman (if you live in the US)
