You can click here to add your name:Net neutrality is in deep trouble.
If you’re new to this fight: Net neutrality is the principle that all websites should be treated the same by Internet providers and not given a leg up for any reason. The website of a mom-and-pop small business shouldn’t load any slower than the website of their multi-national conglomerate competitor.
But a federal court just stopped net neutrality rules from going into effect, opening the door for the big telecom corporations to give their preferred content an unfair advantage.
We need to fight back -- click here to sign my petition in support of net neutrality.
Without net neutrality, these big telecom corporations could become gatekeepers to the Internet. Small businesses could face an even more uneven playing field than they already do. Independent content could become harder and harder to find online. And you could wind up paying more to access the sites you want to surf.
Big companies like Verizon, Comcast, and Time Warner shouldn’t get to decide who can use the fast lane on the information superhighway -- which, after all, was developed at taxpayer expense and has been open to us all by design.
But if this court ruling is the final word, there will be nothing to stop Internet providers from violating net neutrality.
Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen -- click here to sign on in support of net neutrality!
I talk to Minnesotans every day who are sick of paying more for less when it comes to broadband Internet. And I don’t want to see that trend continue.
That’s why I’ve been proud to lead the fight in support of net neutrality. But now, with this court ruling dealing us a huge setback, I need you with me in that fight more than ever.
Click here to say you support net neutrality and let’s organize to make sure we protect it.
P.S.: If net neutrality is destroyed, telecom companies could even make it harder to access content that challenges their control of the Internet -- a good reason to sign our petition!
