At Opera, we’ve always fought against all kinds of technical thresholds that could slow down the speed of internet for almost two decades with using our compression technology. They are the device hardware that does not have enough CPU power or memory to render web pages, crowded Wi-Fi network, or web pages filled with oversize images, video or heavy programming. We’ve also fought against high mobile data costs and limited mobile network bandwidth to speed up the internet and lower the costs to access the web for those in need.

Barriers to fair internet access continue raising. In the US, the FCC is planning to give internet service providers control over what people can see and do on the web, with the power to slow down websites. This is a threat to net neutrality. If we lost net neutrality, people could soon have the web where some of their favorite sites are forced into a slow lane online, while deep-pocketed companies have special fast lane access to reach their users. This is against our efforts to make the internet faster and more affordable.

Today we join hands with web sites, online communities, and internet users, like yourself, to sound the alarm about the threat to net neutrality. By accessing this site, you will be able to submit a comment to the FCC and Congress.

If you join, we will be able to stop the FCC from destroying net neutrality rules. You can also change your social media profile pictures to show off your support and invite your friends, families, followers to take action 🙂

    Great initiative, i’m gonna comment and try to do my best, because the neutrality of the net is something vital for the users and the balance. Thanks for join to this movement Opera, you’re awesome.
    Greetings.

      Thank you for taking action! We hope to get more people like you to protect fair internet access 🙂

  • The only real way to protect a neutral internet is for the whole system to be changed over to one where everyone on it distributes the load of the service provider’s current role. Both corporations and governments have self-serving agendas, and I don’t trust either of them with control of the Internet.

    I’m with you all the way!!!

    Where is the petition?

    • Caleb Budde

      Mozilla has one! So why not Opera?

    would Banning throttling give justification for switching to a charge per gigabyte download model?

    Net neutrality controls competition between isp providers for customers. The biggest problem with net neutrality is that the isp largest provider are crony as they take grants from the government to provide infrastructure to rural communities and they do it very poorly. I have to make sure my data isp settings on any of their phones is input correctly. As well they charge outrageous prices for service that is constantly overloaded at peak times….

    Aww… Though i agree with you that Opera is very fast but that picture tagged “Patience is a virtue…. No it’s not” truly got me thinking…

    Well @ http://contechsblog.com we believe Technology is life so it’s a win-win.

  • Grahamak

    Net neutrality was a good idea but the internet doesn’t work that way anymore let the free market rule

  • Good move by Opera, this will definitely help the end users.

    Dear Opera developers: Can you add support for Netflix video at 1080p resolution (or higher)? This could increase Opera share in browser market.
    https://help.netflix.com/en
    Chrome, Opera and Firefox support playback of Netflix movies in 720p resolution in Win7, Win8.1 & Win10. IE11 in Win7 support only 720p (it uses Silverlight 5).
    IE plays Netflix movies at resolution 1080p in Win8.1 and Win10. Edge in resolution 1080p or 4K in Win10.
    Adding 1080p or 4K in Opera would especially important for Win7 users (all browsers play Netflix video at 720p in Win7; there is no Netflix app for Win7).

  • #Opera developers are doing good job 🙂

  • Yes I changed my Facebook profile picture to show off my support. Kudos guys. Almost all the visitors at this site http://cfrmagazine.com use opera browser. You’re doing a good job. Keep it up.

  • U.S. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai has proposed to reverse the net neutrality rules that prohibits Internet service providers from blocking or discriminating against web sites and online content.

    On the other hand, The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has ruled in favour of Net Neutrality putting an end to a long on-going debate. The authority has announced that “no service provider can offer or charge discriminatory tariffs for data services on the basis of content”.

  • I’m happy to join the movement too. Net neutrality is a must. The truth is there is need for a lot of restructuring especially to open up monopolized areas. http://www.practicalbusinessideas.com/

    Dear Opera programmers: Would you include support for Netflix movie in 1080p resolution (or greater)? This may boost Opera discuss in browser marketplace. IE11 in Win7 support just 720p (it utilizes Silverlight 5). IE plays Netflix films at resolution 1080p at Win8.1 and Win10. Edge in Win10 in 4K or even resolution 1080p. Adding 1080p or 4K from Opera would particularly essential for Win7 users (all browsers play with Netflix video in 720p in Win7; there’s no Netflix program for Win7).
