The FCC voted to let big Internet providers like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T ruin the Internet with censorship, throttling, and expensive new fees.
But the US Senate is about to vote on a resolution that could stop them and save freedom on the Internet.
This is especially important for rural communities, because without net neutrality the big network owners like AT&T can raise prices for interconnection fees in a manner that shuts out small ISPs.
The Senate will vote to overturn the FCC’s disastrous decision in mid-May, and we need just one more U.S. senator on our side to win and move on to the House of Representatives.
Without net neutrality, ISPs will be able to block apps, slow websites, and charge us extra fees that none of us can afford. They’ll control what we see and do online.
If we don’t make enough calls to Congress, lawmakers will think we don’t care and the FCC will get away with killing net neutrality. ISPs will gain the power to restrict the Internet’s usefulness for independent news, creative work, and social change—a devastating blow to just about everyone online.
