The FCC is two days away from unveiling its new proposed net neutrality rules, and Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian will stop at nothing to stop a bad ruling. Through a crowdfunding campaign on Crowdtilt, Ohanian raised over $20,000 to place ads around Washington, DC to speak out against selective fast tracked internet service.
Placed in bus stops, the ads liken the internet to a street grid, claiming that internet service providers are threatening to introduce gridlocks and make internet users pay more to reach the sites they want to visit:
To inform the public about net neutrality and explain why it should be treated as a public utility, Ohanian will join Oregon Senator Ron Wyden in a Reddit AMA today starting at 5 p.m. EST.
