There’s a lot of outrage to go around regarding a possible government shift on net neutrality. Rather than treating all data on the Internet equally, the Federal Communications Commission is considering a plan that would allow Internet providers to give streaming preference to sites that cough up money.
John Oliver offers a unique solution. He encourages all Internet trolls out there to finally put their vitriol to good use: letting their creative juices flow on the FCC site, which asks for public comment on the topic. And it’s possible that the call to action was largely responsible for the site’s technical difficulties due to heavy traffic in the last couple days. Bam.
The power of free speech may have won this battle for net neutrality, but it’s yet to be seen whether it will win the war.
