You’re here, so I’m guessing you probably like the internet. As wonderful as it is, the United States is already home to some of the most overpriced, unreliable internet service on the planet, don’t let spineless politicians and corporate lobbyists make it worse.
If you’d rather not pay more for “internet packages” that allow you to visit your favorite streaming sites, news sites or play games – or potentially have access restricted and controlled altogether like China – it’s time to take action.
Visit BattlefortheNet and let your elected representatives know that corporate money doesn’t come before the wishes of we the people. You can also let them know how their actions will affect your vote in 2018 and 2020. Keep the internet neutral and protect free speech!
WHAT IS NET NEUTRALITY?
Net neutrality is the basic principle that protects our free speech on the Internet. “Title II” of the Communications Act is what provides the legal foundation for net neutrality and prevents Internet Service Providers like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from slowing down and blocking websites, or charging apps and sites extra fees to reach an audience (which they then pass along to consumers.)
WHY IS NET NEUTRALITY IMPORTANT?
The Internet has thrived precisely because of net neutrality. It’s what makes it so vibrant and innovative—a place for creativity, free expression, and exchange of ideas. Without net neutrality, the Internet will become more like Cable TV, where the content you see is what your provider puts in front of you.
