Letter: Net neutrality critical to protect people

To the Editor:  

I am writing this letter with one sole purpose: To save net neutrality.  

I turned 18 in July, so I am now of voting age. I can promise that if net neutrality is repealed, I will not vote for those responsible in coming elections. Net neutrality is vital to America. Without it, the gap between upper and lower class will only increase.  

I understand the thought process behind it – cable is dying out, and there is a market in internet streaming. By eliminating net neutrality, businesses can take back the control that companies like Amazon, Netflix and Hulu took from them.

But the internet is NOT the same as TV channels. If someone can’t afford certain channel packages, the worst that can happen to them is boredom. If someone can’t afford internet packages, they will be more out of the loop. The internet will become elite, rather than connecting all sorts of people like it was made to do.  

Please, do not let net neutrality be eliminated. It is so vital for our community to become more equal and connected. Do not let greed take over our nation. Please, think about what’s good for the people, rather than what’s good for business. 

Because, really, as a government worker, you are in the business of people.
