Net Neutrality: The Internet Fights Back
The Internet — our magical land of information, entertainment, and essential services — is in danger.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has declared war on the open Internet, and only you — “the Internet’s time wasters and trouble makers” (according to John Oliver) — can save it.
FCC Chair Ajit Pai wants to hand control over the Internet to Big Telecom — giving giants like Comcast and Verizon even more power to dictate what Americans can see, say, and do online.
If they succeed, our favorite websites and services could be slowed to a crawl and we’ll end up with an “Internet” that looks more like cable TV — a boring, expensive, money-making machine for telecom giants.
However there’s one big hurdle in their way — to overturn Title II, they need to hold a public consultation, and this is where you come in: if enough people submit comments to the FCC’s public record, they won’t be able to justify repealing Title II.
We’ve built a powerful tool to make it as easy as possible for you to get your voice onto the public record — and we’ve even included a set of helpful talking points to get you started.
Big Telecom doesn’t get to decide what the Internet looks like — we do. But this won’t work without you.
Don’t let the Internet become cable TV 2.0 — a web of slow lanes for those who can’t pay, and fast lanes for those who can.
