The Fight to Save Net Neutrality

stop the merger

On May 15, 2014, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler proposed rules that would allow rampant discrimination online. Since then, millions of people have spoken out for real Net Neutrality. 

Under these rules, telecom giants like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon would be able to create a two-tiered Internet, with fast lanes for the few who could afford the tolls and slow dirt roads for the rest of us. These companies would have the power to pick winners and losers online and discriminate against online content and applications. And no one would be able to do anything about it.

The agency can preserve Net Neutrality only by reclassifying broadband as a telecommunications service. This is the only way to protect the open Internet. Anything else is an attack on our rights to connect and communicate.
