Here’s how to defend network neutrality


Coverage Type: reporting

Network neutrality is under threat, but you can do something to defend it. Activists working on the issue have numerous suggestions. But they all boil down to this: Make your voice heard. Hard as it may be to believe sometimes, policymakers do actually listen to the public. “The short answer is to raise hell,” said Craig Aaron, CEO of Free Press. That’s how net neutrality was saved before. Millions of everyday citizens made their voices heard, and the FCC responded. So how exactly can you make your voice heard?

Here’s what the advocates recommend.

  • Call or send a snail mail letter to your senators and congressional representative.
  • Call and leave a message for Chairman Pai.
  • Sign a petition.
  • Sign up for alerts.
  • Join and donate to an advocacy group.
  • Encourage others to get involved.
  • Be prepared to send in comments.

Comments

Curtis J. Neeley Jr suggests the following for concerned citizens:

  1. Promote the fact both broadband and (open nternet) are Title II common carriers using
    "airwaves" and interconnected WIRE for communications per 47 USC § 153 ¶¶(11,40,59).
  2. .

  3. Realize Chairman Commissioner Ajit Pai's
    prior employer is Verizon Inc., causing Chair
    Pai to protect the interests of ISPs before poor
    citizens because ISPs are the Chair's likely
    future employers.
  4. .

  5. Realize both broadband and (open nternet) are
    limited resources to deliver and realize unlimited
    communications from the early days of the (open
    nternet
    ) are not possible.
  6. .

  7. Realize there has never been and will never be a
    unique and wholly new medium for worldwide human communications
    " despite a culturally senile
    77 y/o justice's claim to discover one.
  8. .

  9. Realize the United States was overthrown by a
    corporate oligarchy as planned by voters in 1929
    such that America is no longer a representational
    democratic Republic but is a corporate oligarchy.
    America just elected a President as the lesser
    of two evils, due to opposing unqualified elective
    abortion of gestation, in just the interests of personal liberty.
  10. .

  11. Call your Congresspeople and your Senators and ensure Chairman Commissioner Pai's first term as Commissioner ends this year and Chairman Commissioner Pai is not reappointed for another five years as required by December. Let Commissioner Pai continue working for ISPs but not do this while an FCC commissioner.
  12. .

  13. YOU ARE PAYING COMMISSIONER PAI TODAY TO KILL NETWORK NEUTRALITY! PLEASE STOP!
    Fire him NOW!
