Hi All,

This is not directly Model Boats related and more for members living in the US at the moment, but it does affect this website in some part and could become a more global issue in the longer term.

For those living in the US I do urge you to visit the link below and sign the petition to stop your Internet Service Providers having the ability to control the speeds of websites you visit.

Today is in an internet-wide day of action to save net neutrality.

https://www.battleforthenet.com/july12

If Internet Service Providers get their way, websites like this could be censored, slowed down, blocked, or forced to charge extra fees. It would be the end of the open web.

Please help stop them and keep the internet open, fast and equal for all. Vote for an open and fair internet.

Check out the press coverage here:

How does this affect me?
* In the US, the FCC will begin to allow ISP's to control what you see & do online in the next 60 days. This includes creating fast lanes for websites who pay and slow lanes for the rest.
* In the EU, rules still require that all internet traffic has to be treated equally, without blocking or slowing down certain data... for now...

If you don't agree with ISPs blocking and slowing down websites, or you don't agree with paying more for faster connections to certain services, then please show your support and help spread the word.

Although this is primarily affecting the FCC laws in the US, the petition is not limited to US residents and in time will come to affect us all. The internet should be fast and equal.

Thank you for showing your support and helping small websites like this receive equal rights to a fast internet.
