LIMA — A rally in support of net neutrality will be held at 5:30 p.m. Monday at the office of U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, 3121 W. Elm St., Lima. Members of the public are invited to attend.
According to a release from rally organizer Kerry Bush, “Net neutrality allows individuals to access internet content equally, regardless of the source. Without it, large corporations are able to pay to have their data load faster, while the data of small businesses and everyday people are slower to load and may even be blocked.”
The Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal the net neutrality policy in December, saying it would end what it described as a “heavy-handed” approach to regulating the internet. Net neutrality regulations are set to expire June 11.
Bush has organized the rally with support from Allen & Hardin for Election Action & Democracy (AHEAD).
