Fight for Net Neutrality | Fight for the Future

The FCC is attempting end net neutrality, breaking the fundamental principle of the open Internet on Dec 14th 2017. Please help to retain current laws and fight FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's creatively mis-represented "Restoring Internet Freedom Order" draft.

What is "Net Neutrality?"

Network neutrality means your ISP routes data packets without prejudice.

So why is this important?  While current regulations requiring network neutrality might superficially look like restrictions placed upon it, they're actually there to protect the relatively free market that exists on the net.

Without our current Net Neutrality laws, ISPs could easily leverage their state-guaranteed market position to "regulate" the Internet by proxy. They could pick winners in the market for Internet products and services, demand special fees from large ones, and block products and services arbitrarily.

Please contact your representatives to ensure this does not happen.
