Will the Internet remain in the hands of users? Or will a few phone and cable companies decide which Web sites you can and can’t see? Urge the FCC to protect Net Neutrality once and for all.
[efoods]Do you like the Internet as it is — open to everyone to create and find content? Do you like writing blogs, reading alternative media, posting videos, engaging with your communities, connecting with your friends and family? Do you want to see how the Internet keep developing applications and online experiences we’ve never imagined?
Then you have to tell the FCC. The agency is on the on the cusp of creating a final rule that, if done right, will protect Net Neutrality, the principle that safeguards the Internet from corporate control — and allows us to use it like we do.
The FCC is facing intense pressure from giant phone and cable companies that want to strip away our right to an open Internet. They have already flooded the FCC with comments calling for an end to Net Neutrality so that they can control the Internet and block our access to Web sites and information.
It’s time the FCC heard the voices of people like you who rely on the open Internet every day.
We’ve created an easy-to-use tool to file your comments. By acting today, you can make sure that no FCC commissioner can in good conscience side with the phone and cable cartel against an open Internet.
It’s time for the FCC to stand up for Net Neutrality. If you’ve never done it before, now is the time to take action.
