Require ISP's with New York state contracts to abide by net neutrality principles.

I'm calling on Governor Cuomo to issue an executive order requiring internet service providers with state contracts to abide by net neutrality principles.

This would mean that in order to receive a contract with the state of New York, internet service providers like Verizon and Comcast must not block  web content and extracting higher profits without returning better service to the American people.

If net neutrality principles and prioritise some content over other content could violate privacy and data protection rights, the agency can monitor and control the distributors of speech, they can shape culture and politics. State governments can be some of the biggest consumers of internet services so this will send a strong message.

Furthermore, this can be done. In January of 2018, Montana Governor Steve Bullock (D) signed an executive order to do just this, explaining “This is a simple step states can take to preserve and protect net neutrality. We can’t wait for folks in Washington DC to come to their senses and reinstate these rules.”

Please my petition asking Governer Cuomo to require all internet service providers with state contracts to abide by net neutrality rules.
