Thursday's D3 Daily Action
SAVE NET NEUTRALITY AND AN OPEN INTERNET
The free and open internet is under attack.
Net neutrality rules make sure internet providers can’t slow down our favorite websites or prop up toll booths online. But Donald Trump’s new FCC chairman wants to change all of that by selling control of our open web to the likes of Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon.
Donald Trump’s FCC wants to hand over control of the internet to huge megacorporations like Verizon and Comcast and create “internet slow lanes” that would be able to block or censor what some of us can see on the internet — unless you're able to pay huge fees for decent service.
This is unfortunately a battle we’ve already fought—but it's also a battle we've already won. In 2014, millions of Americans like you, earned a massive victory for net neutrality, and together we stopped the Comcast and Time Warner merger in its tracks.
Without net neutrality, Comcast and the other monopolies that control our internet service will be able to control where we go and what we do online. That’s not a risk we can afford to take.
The opponents of a free and open internet are on the attack. Less than 2 months ago, tens of thousands of Americans told the FCC that they wanted net neutrality protected so that all voices were equal on the internet. But the FCC is under the sway of the likes of Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon, who want to kill net neutrality so that they can slow down or speed up whichever websites they want.
Net neutrality rules prevent internet providers from controlling which websites we can see online. They’re essential for protecting the free expression of ideas online—essential for the functioning democracy.
