Keep Freedom on The Internet!

This post reflects a comment received from Common Cause. It is time to stand up with them and keep the internet free.


As the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) considers how to write the rules to protect freedom and openness on the Internet, who should they turn to: consumers like you and me, or the oligopolistic telecommunications companies? 

Verizon and Google announced this week that they have it all figured out when it comes to net neutrality.* They unveiled a policy framework that would give telecom companies the right to speed up or slow down certain kinds of content, and to block outright 
applications or content on wireless networks.


Please join me in telling the FCC to say 'thanks, but no thanks' to the Verizon/Google plan by sending an email drafted by Common Cause. You can change the wording to your liking

It shouldn't be up to giant oligopolies to decide the rules and regulations that govern their behavior.
