Historic Victory for Net Neutrality

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to punish Comcast for violating Net Neutrality and blocking your right to do what you want on the Internet.

Today’s vote at the FCC is also a precedent-setting victory that sends a powerful message to phone and cable companies that blocking access to the Internet will not be tolerated from this time forward.

Countless Americans rely upon an open Internet in their daily lives. Our elected leaders must protect our basic right to communicate from those who want to take it from us. Please join with me and 2 million others to demand that Congress protect the free-flowing Internet from blocking, censorship and discrimination by phone and cable companies.

This is not an issue of left against right but of right over wrong. To allow companies to interfere with our Internet access is a stark violation of the principles of openness and nondiscrimination that have been the bedrock of U.S. communications policy for more than 70 years. It’s up to Congress to protect innovation, free speech and democracy on the Internet.
