Stop the Secrecy

UPDATED: Your letters are being published! Tell the FCC and Congress to stop the Internet slow down

Mon, 01/26/2015 - 09:58 -- Josh Tabish

Surprise, surprise. Once again, Big Telecom giants are trying to force their Internet slow lane plan on us – but now they’re trying to use Congress to do it. They’re pushing a reckless, loophole-filled piece of legislation that would prevent decision-makers at the FCC from following through on delivering the strongest net neutrality rules possible to Internet users. And, what’s worse: there are important hearings happening tomorrow on rules that could change the net forever.

If we don’t speak out now, then we could risk all the progress we’ve made pushing back this slow lane plan. This is why we need you to get letters about this slowdown published in your local paper. Get your letter published ASAP to let your Member of Congress, decision-makers at the FCC, and your community know where you stand when they open their newspapers tomorrow.

Published Letters

Thousands of Internet users from all over the U.S. have already submitted letters, and more are being published every single day. Check out a sample of them here:

 

President Obama has already asked the FCC to do the right thing and protect Net Neutrality by reclassifying broadband under Title II of the Communications Act – giving us the strongest rules possible. He’s also said that action from Congress is not needed – they need to let the FCC do their job and give us the rules we’re demanding.

Now it’s over to you to seal the deal.
