Alright. Let's come clean here. Net Neutrality is a really big deal. It's literally the freedom to browse the web! On December 14th, 2017, the FCC will vote to get rid of Net Neutrality - for good.

Not concerned yet? By killing off Net Neutrality, certain websites will be blocked by your ISP (Internet Service Provider - Where you get your WiFi), or even worse, Scratch may become gone - also, for good. That means either no more Scratch for the rest of your life, or you will need to pay for it. The same situation applies to every website in existence.

What the real question is, is what will happen to scratch if The FCC kills Net Neutrality?

Battleforthenet.com is the official protest page for Net Neutrality's repeal. Join the movement!

Wow… 3 pages in ONE day. Net Neutrality is some SERIOUS business!
I hope not!

What will happen to Scratch if Net Neutrality is killed?

Lets clear up some things for those who don't really understand what will happen.

People outside of the US… nothing will happen unless your country decides to follow in the footsteps of the United States and allow internet service providers to throttle or block certain sites.

People in the US… Some people might not see a change. This may be due to the fact that you are with a service provider that does not wish to block sites and throttle your internet. It may also be that there is too much competition in your area and doing this would hurt the company. Others, might see a drastic change. Sites ARE NOT SHUTTING DOWN. Scratch will not close their doors, neither will Google or any other major company. Companies like Spectrum (formerly BrightHouse Networks), AT&T, Comcast, Xfinity, Verizon, etc. have stated MULTIPLE TIMES that they will be changing their service because of the repeal of the Obama-era Net Neutrality law under the Trump Administration. The latency to certain websites may be higher. This means that some websites will load slower. Also, certain pages/websites can and will be blocked by ISPs. (Yes, this is censorship… I know). You may be required to pay for certain sites to access them. This fee could be anywhere from $0.01 (1 cent) to $1000/mo. Now, we don't know if and when sites like Scratch will be blocked. It is not the end of the internet. Its the end of guaranteed access to the internet. (Unless you remember how Verizon and other ISPs got sued for throttling during the era of NN).

Now there is a solution. Ethical or not I will not be listing them here.

If this happens, the internet will become unpopular rapidly. Nobody wants to use the internet for 10 years spending hundreds of dollars.

I was always hoping that in the future, the internet would improve. Now it's all going downhill.

Yeah, this isn't really as dramatic as people are saying. Being a SERIOUS internet weirdo, I haven't noticed anything. Maybe it's because I don't use social medias much, but IDK. What I'm trying to say is that if I haven't even noticed anything yet, then the issue isn't that big…
for now.

Most other countries have some sort of net neutrality law in place. Very few countries will be likely to repeal it.

No, the EU has protection for Net Neutrality.

If you're not in the US, for example, if you are in the UK like me, don't worry about anything unless your country makes a statement about it.
