PROTECT NET NEUTRALITY

FCC VOTED TO END NET NEUTRALITY
12/14/17 UPDATE FROM THE ACLU: CONGRESS MUST STEP IN TO SAVE NET NEUTRALITY

The Federal Communications Commission, led by Trump’s hand-picked chairman, has voted to undo our hard-won net neutrality protections. This means that telecommunications companies will soon be able to dictate how we use the internet to get information, organize and take action, make purchases, and stream video. But net neutrality isn’t dead yet. Now we’re taking the fight to Congress. Pro-net neutrality members will use the Congressional Review Act in a bid to reverse this hasty and misguided FCC action. We have 60 legislative days (i.e. days when Congress is in session) to pressure Congress to act. The clock is ticking. Each of us needs to raise our voice to push our members of Congress to represent our interests and reverse the FCC’s dismantling of net neutrality. The future of our free, fair, and open internet is at stake.

We need free Internet access!

The FCC confirmed that they will vote on 12/14 to abolish the regulations that prevent internet service providers from controlling internet speeds and the websites and online services that are available to their customers.

Net neutrality allows all users to have equal access to everything on the Internet and prevents Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from essentially turning the internet into cable television.

Without net neutrality, small businesses, low-income individuals, and much of rural America would lose access to affordable, reasonably-fast internet service.
