On December 14 Ajit Pai and the FCC will have a final vote on what we call Net Neutrality. If they end this it will be another financial burden for small businesses. You ask how? Well, if allowed through this action, internet providers such as Verizon and the rest will be allowed to charge a fee to keep websites in the fast lane. If your business has a website and you don’t select to pay this fee, your site will be slower to load and will therefore get fewer hits. For B&B, lodges, mom and pop ventures, this could easily translate to less income as fewer people will have the patience to wait for your site.
Pai, the FCC Chairman, has ignored 22 million emails against this. He used to be a bigwig at Verizon and Trump appointed him to service the public.
Help stop this by calling (888) 225-5322, the FCC phone number in Washington, DC. You can also email Ajit Pai himself at Ajit.Pai@Fcc.Gov, his own government (not the general FCC account) email. Help tie it up and help stop the end of Net Neutrality. The business you save could well be yours. Anyone with a website should be very concerned about this, including The Deerfield Valley News. This is not only a fee for services but also a fee for information.
