Snippet: Battle for the Net ☇

Shared on January 15, 2024

Fight for the Future and Demand Progress set up a site to automate comments to the FCC in favor of net neutrality:

The FCC is moving forward to restore net neutrality. This will prevent companies like Verizon and Comcast from abusing their gatekeeper power, blocking or slowing down websites, or charging unfair fees to use your favorite apps. Simply put, it’ll stop Big Telecom from teaming up with Big Tech to screw us more than they already do. Telecom lobbyists are working overtime to block or water down the FCC’s proposed rule, but we can overcome them. Take action by January 17th.

Take a few minutes and fill out the form if you’re in favor of net neutrality—you have until January 17.
