Save Net Neutrality!

29 November 2017 — OpenMedia

As I’m sure you’ve seen, it’s been all hands on deck to save Net Neutrality in the U.S. We need you to add your name now to our worldwide message to Republican Congressional leaders to stop the FCC from destroying the free and open Internet as we know it.

This won’t just impact Americans, it will disrupt the Internet for all of us who depend on it.

Act now

We only have until December 14th to save Net Neutrality. If you haven’t yet, please add your name.

Thanks for being a part of this.

See my original message below for more information.

America is looking to destroy Net Neutrality – and we need to make sure the U.S. knows this is a bad decision that will impact the Internet as we all know and love it.

If the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) plan to repeal Net Neutrality protections goes through, Americans definitely will be hit the hardest – but make no mistake, it will impact the rest of the world too.

You could soon see prices increasing for some of your favourite online content and services that are going to have to pay Big Telecom extra, just to guarantee their content will be able to reach you.

Will you speak up for Net Neutrality?

The FCC will make this decision in the U.S., but it will impact all of us. And we can’t let them destroy the Internet as we know it without putting up a fight.

The vote on this proposal is on December 14 – which means we have less than three weeks to stop the FCC’s plan!

Net Neutrality is not a partisan issue. It impacts every single one of you, regardless of your political affiliation. Democrats have already spoken up in support of Net Neutrality, and now we need the Republicans to join the call.

It’s time to show the Republican leaders of Congress that the world is watching. Add your name to tell Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan: Save Net Neutrality.

Earlier this week, we asked you to ask your American friends to contact their Congressperson, to save Net Neutrality. Millions of Americans have already submitted comments to the FCC, written or called their Member of Congress, and attended rallies across the country to protect the Internet1 – not just for Americans, but for the whole World Wide Web.

Nearly 80 percent of Americans support Net Neutrality. Almost 3/4 of Republicans want their government to stop the FCC from making changes to open Internet rules.2 This is our chance to show them that they’re not alone.

Tell Congressional leaders to save Net Neutrality.

The FCC’s decision will affect us all, and we’re doing everything we can to pressure Congress to protect the Internet. We need to show our American friends that we’ve got their backs, and let Congress see that Net Neutrality is a global issue.

The final vote by the FCC is on December 14th.Let’s make sure the leaders in Congress see that the world wide web is counting on them to do the right thing.

Thanks for being a part of this,
Laura, on behalf of your OpenMedia team
