Can YOU Help? Two Million Strong for Net Neutrality

Do YOU believe in the concept of Net Neutrality? You should.

Happily the FCC chairman has just called for new Net Neutrality rules, backed by President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and several congressional leaders. Now we need to complete the final lap -- signing Net Neutrality into law -- with a powerful, public show of support.

What is Net Neutrality?

quotes left Net Neutrality is the guiding principle that preserves the free and open Internet.

Net Neutrality simply means no discrimination. Net Neutrality prevents Internet providers from blocking, speeding up or slowing down Web content based on its source, ownership or destination.

Net Neutrality is the reason the Internet has driven economic innovation, democratic participation and free speech online. It protects the consumer's right to use any equipment, content, application or service without interference from the network provider. With Net Neutrality, the network's only job is to move data -- not to choose which data to privilege with higher quality service. quotes right

Americans can take a minute to go HERE and let your local representatives know that you've taken a stand in favor of Net Neutrality -- and you want them to do the same. Really, it doesn't take much time, but every communication is important.

And thanks in advance for YOUR help!
