Repealing Net Neutrality will open opportunities for shenanigans and WhyFly is a shenanigan-free company. We will remain net neutral. Big business owns your internet and we’re giving it back.

Co-Founders Mike Palita & Mark Thompson started WhyFly with the core belief that the internet and access to free information is an essential part of a quality life, facilitates learning, sharing information, connecting communities, as well as creating new economic markets.

The companies that facilitate the internet shouldn’t have a bias to what travels on said highway.

Regardless of the FCC ruling and what the other big companies are doing WhyFly will stay true to these values.

So, yeah. Just so you know.
