Protesters gathered outside hundreds of Verizon stores throughout the nation Thursday in a last-ditch effort to save net neutrality rules.

Those rules prohibit internet providers from establishing fast and slow lanes online, and from favoring certain types of content over others. Net neutrality means treating all online content equally.
