Net Neutrality Alert!!!  It appears Ajit Pai and the FCC are going to repeal Net Neutrality.  Please take action before it is too late.  The vote is December 14th.  You may remember we filed the nations first Net Neutrality complaint from a network operator becuase Time Warner Cable refused to peer without a ransom being paid.  We lost because Net Neutrality does not cover interconnection as it currently stands.  Without the current Net Neutrality rules, it will be MUCH WORSE!  Follow @SanDiegoWebCam for updates.
