We have come an incredible distance in our campaign to save the Internet. Initially the solution of the net neutrality community was considered politically impossible, now it is politically inevitable.  Or, at least some form of it is and we need to continue to keep the pressure on to make sure it is the right solution that does not allow a tiered Internet with wealthy corporations can pay for better service than start-ups, small businesses and citizen’s media.

The solution is to reclassify the Internet as a common carrier so that there can be no discrimination and equal access for all. In order to put into effect Net Neutrality rules the Internet must be reclassified under Title II of the Federal Communication Act.

The FCC had planned to put in effect their tiered Internet on December 11.  We won an important victory when they were forced to not take that step. Now we need to push for reclassification and Net Neutrality rules.  Please join us.
