Canadian group hosts international platform for massive Internet Slowdown Day to show what Internet would be like if we lost net neutrality rules

OpenMedia.ca joins with major websites Netflix, reddit, and huge coalition as experts warn of damaging consequences for Canada if net neutrality is undermined in U.S. or here in Canada

VANCOUVER, Sept. 10, 2014 /CNW/ - Vancouver-based digital rights group OpenMedia.ca is joining with Netflix, reddit, Vimeo, and a huge international coalition to support Internet Slowdown Day. Dozens of major websites have agreed to show their users a perpetual 'loading' icon, to symbolize how the loss of net neutrality rules could slow many favourite websites to a crawl.

To support the day of action OpenMedia.ca is hosting an action platform at http://StopTheSlowdown.net and encouraging Canadian websites to embed the web action widget found here: https://openmedia.org/bigtelecomvstheworld/resources#widget

The move comes against the backdrop of a crucial U.S. FCC hearing which could decide the future of net neutrality in the U.S. Large telecom conglomerates are pushing the FCC to do away with net neutrality, a move that would have major implications for Canadians and others around the world.
