Big Cable is pulling out all the stops to kill net neutrality. Chip in today to help us fight back.
One year ago, your advocacy helped win the strongest net neutrality protections ever. Now, we need your help to keep them.
Millions of Americans told the Federal Communications Commission to protect free and fair expression online. The FCC listened, and wrote strong Open Internet rules which make sure companies like Comcast and Verizon have to treat all traffic, content, and users equally — no “fast lanes” for a wealthy few.
Despite making historic profits, Big Cable is attacking net neutrality in a bid to increase their bottom lines — at the expense of the free-flow of information online. The biggest telecom companies in the country have already sued the FCC, and a verdict could come any day in their case. Meanwhile, their lobbyists wrote a bill that guts the FCC’s ability to enforce its Open Internet rules altogether — and it’s already passed the House!
Common Cause is already hard at work protecting net neutrality. We’ve filed a brief in support of the FCC’s rules, and we’re mobilizing thousands of grassroots activists to stop Congress from killing net neutrality.
But now, Big Cable is taking their efforts to kill the Open Internet to the next level. If we want to keep up, we’ll need to up our game too.
Because even though Comcast and Verizon have millions of dollars to hire fancy lawyers and lobbyists — we have people power on our side. We must match their war chest with grassroots power targeting Congress, the courts, and the FCC to defend our hard won net neutrality victory.
At Common Cause, we know how much voters and activists rely on the Open Internet. Letting Big Cable gatekeepers meddle with the free flow of information online distorts our democracy. With your support, we won’t let it happen.
