Missed our previous coverage of the fight to save net neutrality and access to an open internet?
If that happens, internet traffic would no longer be treated equally, and internet service providers like Verizon could create fast and slow lanes. We're pretty sure which lane we'd end up in.

How to help channel your inner superhero and save nothing less than the internet
Call your member of Congress (like, right now) to urge them to protect net neutrality. You can reach them through the Capitol switchboard (202.224.3121) or via the Battle for the Net website (where you'll also find talking points and lots of other resources).
You might want to quote from this week's open letter from all the internet pioneers (pretty much everyone except Al Gore) about what damage would result from a reversal of net neutrality.
Feeling sympathetic? Check out the aptly-titled #RIPInternet campaign, hosted by the Free Press Action Fund and Defiant. Guaranteed to be the most fun you'll have doing anything related to net neutrality, they'll help you send flowers to FCC Chair Ajit Pai with your sympathy for the passing of the open internet.
