(Expired) Action: Submit Public Comment to the FCC Opposing the Rollback of Net Neutrality

Make an official comment on the FCC’s roll back of net neutrality rules in a plan cynically called  “Restoring Internet Freedom”. Go to the FCC website and click “Express” to start a new comment at this website:  https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/search/filings?proceedings_name=17-108.  See my suggested text for your comment below.  Also, below I have inserted an image showing what you will see on the left hand side of the FCC’s site and circled the “Express” link in red (since the site isn’t exactly clear.)

Without net neutrality, Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and the other monopoly Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will be able to interfere with our ability as Internet users to control where we go and what we do online.  These large ISPs would be able to demand fees from companies like Netflix and YouTube to deliver videos and other content to customers, raising prices and interfering with access.  Both internet users and Washington’s tech industry will be harmed.

I am writing to express my opposition to the FCC plan “Restoring Internet Freedom”, which would roll back net neutrality.   Without net neutrality, Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and the other monopoly Internet Service Providers will be able to interfere with our ability as Internet users to control where we go and what we do online.  These large ISPs would be able to demand fees from companies like Netflix and YouTube to deliver videos and other content to customers, raising prices and interfering with access.  Both internet users and the tech industry in general will be harmed.
