Here’s how to defend network neutrality

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.
