Act Now: Save Net Neutrality

By December 14th one of the Federale’s alphabet soup agencies: the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will be voting on whether to reverse Net Neutrality rules. These rules protect small businesses and the right for all Americans to free speech. We’re all affected, so we hope you’ll join us in our battle for a free and open Internet, and make your voice heard today.

What are the implications if Net Neutrality rules are reversed?

•    Censorship and blocking of websites, apps, and services for any reason without transparency or accountability and I imagine this is one way they could close down crypto currencies in America.
•    Charging Internet users extra fees just to access sites or streaming services
•    Demanding payments from small business, video creators, musicians, and online services just to reach an audience
•    Slowing internet speeds to a crawl on any platform that doesn’t pay up

Why be so passionate about Net Neutrality?

These rules are so important to us because they affect many freedom loving people such as small businesses and entrepreneurs, so these are the ones who will feel the impact most if Net Neutrality rules are reversed.

By rolling back the rules, the FCC is threatening the ability for anyone to start a business and have their voices heard. Also, broadband providers like Comcast and AT&T will be let off from adhering to basic consumer protection laws. We strongly believe that this action by the FCC is fundamentally wrong.

What can I do?

Act today! The vote is coming up any day now, so time is of the essence. If you value an open Internet and support small businesses and entrepreneurs, please:

Sign the White House petition: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/do-not-repeal-net-neutrality
Call 1-202-418-1000 to reach the voicemail of the Chairman of the FCC and say you oppose the repeal of Net Neutrality. It took 12 seconds.

Call and write to your local lawmakers today to let them know that open Internet rules need to stay.
Forward this message by email far and wide.

We can stop the FCC and save Net Neutrality but only if we all write and call Congress now……
