Pornhub, Redtube, and Youporn join a general protest with a symbolic “slowdown” of the Internet

    Dozens of Internet companies announced their participation in the Internet Slowdown campaign on September 10, 2014. Participants oppose the abolition of network neutrality, when US Internet providers get the right to set different parameters for traffic transmission from different sites, depending on the agreements concluded.

    In addition to Mozilla, Foursquare, Kickstarter, Reddit, Vimeo and many others, representatives of the porn industry - the owners of Pornhub, Redtube and Youporn (the most popular porn sites on the Internet) announced their participation in the "slowdown" of the Internet . September 10, access to porn will not be slowed down, but each visitor will have to click to close the stub with information about the new initiative of the American regulators from the FCC.

    Owners of porn sites expect that about 50 million people will see social agitation!

    There are many ways to take part in the Battle of the Internet . It’s best to place a form with a symbolic download icon, a call to call the senator and sign for network neutrality, if people want to maintain quick access to content ( this is the form that will be placed on popular porn sites ).

    Users are prompted to install the same icon on avatars on social networks.

    “Cable companies want to slow down (and close!) Your favorite sites for their profit. To resist, let's flood the Web with the symbolic “Loading” icons. This will be a good example of what the Internet looks like without network neutrality. At the same time, we will send a record number of letters and calls to lawmakers, ”it is proposed on the website of the online campaign.

    The download icon does not mean that sites will load slower than usual, it’s just a symbolic element, made in the spirit of a very effective campaign against SOPA and PIPA in 2012 , when sites also posted stubs on their pages urging them to protest against flawed legislation.
