Healthy Pets backs Net Neutrality

Press Release: February 17, 2010

The FCC opposes plans by some of the worlds largest ISPs to back a proposed idea for a tiered system of data travel, in which bandwidth heavy traffic, such as video streaming, will travel slower. Together with organizations such as Facebook, Amazon, Google, Sony and eBay, Healthy Pets Insurance understands the need for all online data to be accessed at an equal rate as other, non bandwidth-heavy traffic.

Mark Effenberg, Healthy Pets Chief Executive, said In an ever changing online world, the importance of staying neutral is more important than ever. No matter how large or small a business is, we must all be treated fairly and allowed the same rights as others. We oppose any form of restriction, and this includes the recent proposals to restrict bandwidth hungry traffic. At the end of the day, it is up to the consumer to decide which websites they look at and can access information from, not ISPs.
