iBrattleboro Supports Net Neutrality

It should come as no surprise that iBrattleboro is a supporter of Net Neutrality. It's essential for a vibrant, free, all-access internet.

Getting rid of it opens up the possibility and likelihood of ISP's deciding what internet content gets seen, and what sites get traffic. Comcast content will slide right to you; iBrattleboro content, well maybe.

Internet access should be treated like a utility. It's a necessity, like water and electricity.

We don't pay extra for water to cook with and less for water to wash with -- it is on, or off.
