The free and open internet is under attack.

Under the direction of a former Verizon lawyer named Ajit Pai, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is poised to slash Title II, which is the legal framework for net neutrality.

This will massively expand the ability of internet providers like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon to control what we see and do online. Without the net neutrality rules, they’ll be able to block, throttle, and censor what we can see on the internet – not to mention charge extra fees for decent service.

Send a message to the FCC and your elected officials in D.C. that you won’t stand by and let them kill net neutrality.

Net neutrality is a basic concept: your internet provider cannot slow down your browsing on certain pages, block websites, or charge apps and sites extra fees to reach an audience. All legal content is treated the same.

But the FCC’s net neutrality rules prevent companies like Comcast and Verizon from boosting their profits by threatening to push customers or sites into “internet slow lanes” if they don’t pay extra fees. So big telecom companies have been attacking net neutrality for years.

Your voice matters in this fight.

We’ve been able to beat them back thus far because internet users of all stripes have banded together at critical moments like this to save the internet. 

Millions of people have already spoken out against the FCC’s plan to kill net neutrality, but we need to turn up the heat even more. So today we’re joining with some of the people behind the largest online protests in American history in a massive, internet-wide day of action.

If you value free speech and innovation online, take action today. 

Send a message to the FCC and your elected officials in D.C. that you won’t stand by and let them kill net neutrality.
