FCC Moves to Tax and Control Internet


Last year, more than 40,000 websites participated in the Internet Slowdown to demand real net neutrality.

It worked! But monopolistic Cable companies are pouring millions into a last ditch effort to derail the FCC's historic vote. 
Help us flood Washington, DC with calls and emails to show lawmakers that the whole Internet is watching, and we're literally counting down the seconds until we get real net neutrality.

The FCC’s proposed net neutrality rules are expected to drop this week.

What matters most right now is that we keep up a constant and sustained barrage of online protest between now and the vote calling for the best possible protections for a free and open web.

The Internet is awesome at defending itself. As always, we’ve built the tools to make it easy for *EVERYONE* to maximize their potential as an Internet defending hero.

Your voice matters. Click here to join the Internet Countdown for net neutrality.https://www.battleforthenet.com/countdown/?org=fftft=dXNlcmlkPTU0ODA1MDMyLGVtYWlsaWQ9OTQ2OA==

Participating is easy. If you have a website, blog, or Tumblr, you can grab a snippet of code to display this awesome countdown timer on your site, and help drive phone calls and emails to lawmakers in DC. If not, you can join with Twitter, and sign up to tweet the countdown, like this, either once a day, once a week, or just once before the vote on Feb 26th, it’s your choice.

Thousands have already signed up, helping us reach more than 3.4 million people every day already. If even just half the people on our list did this, we’ll be louder than anything Comcast can dish out.

Will you help us win a historic victory for free speech? Click here and let’s do this.

The atmosphere here at Fight for the Future is electric right now. We’re on the cusp of a victory that no one thought was possible, and we owe it all to supporters like you.

With gratitude and hope,

    The Federal Communications Commission plans to enact President Obama's proposal for net neutrality regulations that would claim expansive new powers over Internet providers.

    In an op-ed in the technology magazine Wired Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said his rules will assure "the rights of internet users to go where they want, when they want, and the rights of innovators to introduce new products without asking anyone's permission."

    He plans to fully apply "bright-line rules" to both Internet connections at home and on mobile devices.

    The move is a devastating blow to Internet providers like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T, who warn that treating the Internet like a utility will strangle investment, leading to worse service for everyone. They have all vowed to fight the rules in court.

    But it's a stunning victory for net neutrality advocates, who organized a massive public campaign over the past year to pressure the FCC to enact strong regulations.

    More than 4 million people filed comments with the FCC, the most for any proceeding ever.

    In November, President Obama sided with the activists and urged the FCC, an independent agency, to enact the "strongest possible" rules.[...]
