It prevents internet service providers from slowing down, blocking or charging more for certain websites to be displayed faster. The highway, or ISPs, shouldn't be able to change or manipulate the data that passes from one place to another.

Emprata found almost 7.6 million comments saying "I am in favor of strong net neutrality under Title II of the Telecommunications Act". Tech companies, including Airbnb, Etsy and Twitter, sent him a letter in support of the current rules. In fact, passing net neutrality rules is a perfect example of one of the few times over the last twenty years that the FCC actually listened to consumers and was willing to stand up to the nation's powerful telecom duopoly.

Here's an example. Barring net neutrality, an ISP such as Comcast could partner with a major entertainment company such as Netflix. Hart said in an email that there had been "concerning activity" regarding public comments on both sides of the issue. His targets: the generally liberal bastions of Silicon Valley and Hollywood. However, it doesn't mean the new plan is only anti-consumer.

Local Independent Online News Publishers is a national nonprofit organization with more than 180 members operating locally focused news sites in 42 states. The most widely posted meme I've seen suggests that "If you're not freaking out about net neutrality, you're not paying attention". ISP's ability to throttle web traffic would mean that larger scale companies would get priority speed and quality, while small businesses get left in the dust.

Pew did not take a stance on any wrongdoing in the incident.

"If you are sending a racist message to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, mocking his name, heritage or family, we do not want you in this new neutrality fight", it said.
