These companies – including Google, Amazon, Netflix, Facebook, Twitter, eBay, reddit, and more – have officially signed on to the position that all Internet traffic should be treated equally. It’s a rare instance where a ruling could be good for the big Internet companies and small businesses at the same time, but in this case, the only companies that want to be able to prioritize traffic are the cable providers. If you haven’t made your opinion on the topic known yet, you can visit:
