The Internet is a powerful thing. It teaches. It connects people who wouldn’t have been able to collaborate otherwise. It allows us to progress beyond our wildest dreams.
To allow a group of oligopolistic service providers to control the way we receive our data, to their own benefit, is completely unacceptable.
I urge Senators Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee to speak on behalf of the people who elected them. Tell FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler not to continue with the proposed plan that would allow Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to charge for preferential treatment. ISPs should be appropriately reclassified as Title II Common Carrier Telecommunications Services. Any other classification allows them to use loopholes to bypass laws put in place by the FCC in 2005.
Please help us save the Internet from turning into the overpriced, cartel-led industry that cable television has become.
