Who is listening in on your phone calls? On a landline, it could be anyone, says privacy activist Christopher Soghoian, because surveillance backdoors are built into the phone system by default, to allow governments to listen in.

I just gave to Demand Progress c4.

For possibly the first time since the FCC adopted Net Neutrality last year, an ISP has been caught red-handed breaking the law.1

T-Mobile is throttling video content from select websites as part of their new "Binge On" feature, and when confronted about it, T-Mobile's CEO lashed out at internet freedom activists, asking "Who the f*ck are you?" and "Who pays you?"2

It's clear T-Mobile has no shame about violating Net Neutrality. And if the FCC doesn't crack down, other companies are sure to follow their lead.

Will you chip in $5 to help demand that the FCC crack down on T-Mobile's blatant violation of Net Neutrality?

Here's what’s happening: Late last year, T-Mobile automatically enrolled all their users in a service they're calling Binge On, which allows users to watch video from certain select websites, like Netflix, without counting against their data cap.

The problem is that sites not enrolled in Binge On, like YouTube and Vimeo, not only count against the data cap but are being pushed onto a data slow lane, causing buffering and poor playback.3

This is a clear, systematic violation of the Net Neutrality rules we fought so hard for. And it's one of the first big tests of whether Net Neutrality will actually be enforced—or will exist only on paper.

We're launching an urgent push to demand the FCC take swift action to crack down on T-Mobile. Will you donate?

Yes, I'll donate to help stop T-Mobile from violating Net Neutrality.

Thanks for taking action on this at a critical time.

David, Daniel, Kurt, Mark, Sara, Victoria, and the rest of the Demand Progress Team

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

T-Mobile demanded to know who pays these people that challenge them to hold true to net neutrality...I do and other ISP customers that do not want our ISP ruling our content and choices! The irony is I signed with T-Mobile mainly because they were less abusive to net neutrality at the time even though their coverage was worse at the time... I was also among those that fought to not allow a ATT buy out of T-Mobile that would have weakened competition...the other reason I wanted to support the development of T-Mobile in America
