Defend Net Neutrality

Tom Wheeler

Tom Wheeler is the current chairman of the FCC. Prior to working at the FCC, Wheeler worked as a venture capitalist and lobbyist for the cable and wireless industry. In late April of 2014 the contours of a document leaked that indicated that Wheeler’s FCC would consider promulgating rules allowing Internet service providers (ISPs) to violate Net Neutrality principles by making it easier for Internet users to access certain content — whose owners paid fees to the ISPs — and harder to access other content, thus undermining the traditional open architecture of the Internet. Substantial backlash manifested in the days following the leak, from activists and the mainstream press. (Source)

Internet users must tell the FCC to reclassify broadband internet as a title II common carrier telecommunications service. Link to form.

This is serious shit. Haven’t we had enough of Big Brother and big business?
