In a last ditch effort to raise awareness about net neutrality, websites such as Twitter, Netflix and Reddit (and even some major adult platforms) are participating in Go Slow Day. September 10th is a day of digital protest in favor of stronger regulations and protecting the idea internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all travelling data equally. In an effort to avoid 'fast lanes' and protect digital rights, participating sites and organizations hope their actions will make the debate more widespread.
The concept of Go Slow Day is to demonstrate what a 'slow lane' internet would look like. While these sites won't actually feature slower internet speed, they will employ 'page loading' images. September 15, 2014 is the last day the public can comment on the issue, which is why today is of such importance.
