Protect Net Neutrality from the Trump Administration

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 keeps the internet a strangely level-playing field (and the internet itself) is under fire from both the Trump administration 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 set to stop ISPs like the big cable and phone companies from favoring/crippling certain websites and services for their own benefit and monetary gain. These rulings could be reversed as Republicans look to deregulate private industries.
As a junior 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 running water, electricity, or transportation. Those without neutral access to it are at a major 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.
- FCC Chairman
We recognize the desire to deregulate private companies. To allow them to be free to innovate, seeing as the initial 1996 Telecommunications Act was created to allow innovation without government intervention.
But one of the greatest technological advancements of all time, the internet, will become distorted and full of prejudice if net neutrality isn't enforced by the FCC.
The internet is an unusually strange playing field for any individual or corporation to conduct business, share ideas, and facilitate communication with just about anyone in the world.
Unfortunately, providers of broadband services are looking to increase profit by favoring their own content, and impeding access to content created by others.
Please help to foster/share new ideas, create economic growth, and provide everyone with equal access to information, by protecting net neutrality.
