Net neutrality – SAVE THE OPEN INTERNET
Net neutrality is in real jeopardy, and we’re banding together in support of strong net neutrality rules that give people the power to choose which websites and apps are best. Your internet service providers and some at the Federal Communications Commission want to change these rules and potentially limit your access to the best of the internet. So what can you do? Take action, and tell the FCC that you care about the open internet and competition online.
Do you like the internet? Great, we do too. A lot.
Cat GIFs, the sum-total of human knowledge at your fingertips, the most democratizing power the world has ever known. What’s not to like?
Unfortunately, some in DC want to fundamentally change the internet for the worse. Internet service providers — or ISPs — say they support the “principles” of net neutrality, but well…

In reality, your ISP wants to roll back the current net neutrality rules and gain the ability to control your experience online.
Specifically they could prioritize websites and apps they own over the rest of the web…
“That’s a nice website you’ve got there. It’d be a shame if something happened to it.”
Gain the power to block websites…
Error 404 – Website Not Found (because your ISP blocked it).
Or even slow down your connection to content they don’t like…
Hello, are you there?
IA, our member companies, and the rest of the internet community have been carefully watching what’s happening in Washington
Juni Cortez has been watching too.
And we need you to speak out in support of net neutrality
Really, we can’t do this on our own. We need you, and the entire internet community, to speak up.
So what do I do now?
We think it’s important to write a personal comment to the FCC about why you support strong net neutrality rules, and what access to the entire internet means to you. We need as many comments as possible. So be unique!
Here’s how it works:
1. Think about what to say. Need some help? Check out this Mashable article.

3. Fill out the required info, leave your comment, then follow the prompts.
