Big Telecom vs. The World

Big Telecom vs. The World

Dear 5849376,

FCC chair Tom Wheeler recently proposed rules that would divide the Internet into fast lanes for wealthy corporations and slow lanes for the rest of us.

These rules would be a massive handout to Big Telecom and the death of Net Neutrality.

With a critical September 15 deadline for public input less than a week from today, we have to go all out to tell the FCC not to usher in a corporate takeover of the internet, and instead make the change we really need: Reclassifying the Internet as a public utility.

CREDO is joining a huge global protest to defend a free and open Internet -- Big Telecom vs. The World. It's being organized by our allies at Open Media and includes people from pro-internet coaltitions around the world. Will you join us?

Click here to stand with users around the world and tell the FCC and global leaders to stop the corporate takeover of the Internet.

Net Neutrality is important because the Internet is an essential service we rely on to conduct our most basic daily affairs, from applying for a job to finding a home, to running a small business. And our right to communicate freely and be heard lies at the heart of our ability to participate equally in our democracy.

A string of federal court cases has made it abundantly clear that the FCC has the power to enforce strong Net Neutrality rules, but only if the FCC goes through the process of undoing a terrible Bush-era decision to deregulate broadband instead of treating it like the vital public utility it has become.

Chairman Wheeler says that he wants to preserve the open Internet. But his proposal explicitly states a preference for not reclassifying broadband -- the one and only thing that will allow the FCC to protect Net Neutrality and ban discrimination on the Internet.

The world will not be silent in the face of this -- join us in a global day of protest.

Thank you for taking action.
