About a dozen protesters turned out Dec. 7 at Russell Cellular, 5933 U.S Highway 11 (Verizon) in Canton to protest the overturning by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of Open Internet laws, also known as net neutrality rules, that were approved two years ago.

The FCC, headed by Verizon-lawyer-turned-FCC-Chairman Ajit Pai, intends to vote Dec. 14 to end net neutrality ‘and the internet as we know it,’ event organizers said. New York U.S. Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, state Assemblywoman Addie Jenne and Congresswoman Elise Stefanik all expressed their concerns about the negative impact net neutrality could have on local businesses and residents.
