If Congress doesn't stop the FCC from repealing net neutrality, the internet as we know it could soon be gone.
On December 14, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to overturn net neutrality, allowing major corporations like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon to mess with your ability to freely engage with online services.
Repealing net neutrality would put more power into the hands of large corporations, stifle innovation, and obstruct everyday users from accessing content online. But Congress has the authority to overturn the FCC’s decision.
Net neutrality prevents internet service providers (ISPs) from discriminating against certain content by slowing load times or blocking it altogether. It also prohibits these ISPs from boosting speeds exclusively for sites that are owned by the provider or willing to pay extra.
Everyone in the United States deserves equal access to the internet. Net neutrality isn’t just about making sure you can stream the latest TV show or share cute cat GIFs with your friends — it’s about ensuring that the internet remains open for all.
Send a message to Congress: Protect net neutrality and preserve equal access to the internet.
