Protect Net Neutrality from the Trump Administration

This petition had 377,950 supporters


The internet has helped to boost the economy, create an amazing tool for educators, and provides an outlet for communication with people all over the world. 

However, the simple policy that has protected this magical land of opportunity is under fire from both the Trump-appointed FCC chairman (Ajit Pai) and service providers like Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon. Sign this petition to call on the FCC to protect net neutrality under the Trump administration.

Net neutrality regulations are designed to stop ISPs like the big cable and phone companies from favoring/crippling certain websites and services for their own benefit and financial gain. These rulings could be reversed as Republicans continue to deregulate private industries. 

As a senior in high school, I can appreciate the need to be able to complete homework, communicate, and access streaming media like Netflix without an ISP slowing down my traffic. In the 21st century, internet is like drinking water, electricity, or transportation. Those without neutral access to it are at an unfair disadvantage.

If net neutrality goes away, the internet will become distorted, and your access to certain content will be based upon your ISP's financial interests and what you're willing to pay, like cable television, hurting the consumer.

Let's stop the telecom lobbyists who buy their influence, and the private companies who already control so much of our media before it is too late.
