What is it about Big Telecom’s Internet slow lane that really grinds your gears?

Here's the thing: we know this proposed “Internet slow lane” being pushed by Big Telecom conglomerates is a nightmare, but we know from experience that the best campaign ideas come from you. So we want you to tell us what it is about Big Telecom's slow lane that drives you nuts. Do you think you can help us?

Oh – and your input doesn’t have to be long. It could be one word, or even just one sentence!

You see, we can think of a million reasons why it’s bad: it’s threatens to kill innovation, it will impact how well you can access your favorite websites, and it will affect Internet users everywhere. And, what’s worse: this fight is increasingly going to play out in countries around the world – the current case in the U.S. is just the beginning. We already see Net Neutrality emerging as a hot issue in the European Union, and Mexico, to name a couple.

We know this is bad – like, really bad – but we're at a crucial time, and we need all hands on deck before the FCC’s September 10 deadline. So it is to you, our trusted OpenMedia supporters, our knights of the open Internet roundtable, that we ask you the following question:

Why do you care about slow lanes on the Internet? What is it about the loss of net neutrality that really grinds your gears?

So, in a word, or in a sentence, please let us know on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, or in the comments section below:
