Will control over the Internet remain in the hands of users and innovators like us? Or will a handful of telephone and cable companies determine which Web sites you see and which you don’t? Urge the FCC to protect Net Neutrality once and for all.
Net Neutrality is the engine of innovation, free speech and democracy on the Internet.
The FCC must protect Net Neutrality by enacting strong rules that keep the Internet free from blocking, censorship and discrimination and ensure that Internet service providers disclose all efforts to manage content.
More than 1.6 million Americans have already called for Net Neutrality protections. Please stand with us by passing a strong Net Neutrality rule.
Please consider telling the FCC — in your own words — to stand up for Net Neutrality.
Here’s what I wrote:
It is vital that the Internet remains out of the control of private entities such as telephone and cable companies. Please make every effort to keep the Internet the way it is today. I am a Web professional who believes that this is an extremely important issue. Allowing private entities whose sole motive is making profits to determine who gets to see what websites based on pay scales will ruin the Web as we know it and cause millions of small business websites rendered invisible to large amounts of people. Don’t allow the collapse of the Web and thus our economy. You think the Internet bubble of 2001 was bad? This will make that look like child’s play.
