An appeals court just dealt the latest blow to the open Internet. The court struck down the Federal Communications Commission’s Open Internet Order because of the questionable legal framework the agency used when it adopted its Net Neutrality rules in 2010.

This ruling means there is no one who can protect us from ISPs that block or discriminate against websites, applications or services.

But there’s hope: FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler can correct the agency’s past mistakes and truly protect our nation’s communications infrastructure. The agency must take the necessary steps to make broadband networks open, accessible, reliable and affordable for everyone.

Tell the FCC to start treating broadband like a communications service, and to restore its Net Neutrality rules.

Bad news: Three judges just dealt a huge blow to the open Internet.

Their ruling means that companies like Verizon can now block or slow down any website, application or service they like. And they’ll be able to create tiered pricing structures with fast lanes for those who can afford the tolls — and slow lanes for everyone else.

Tell the FCC to do everything in its power to fight back.
