Decision Maker Response
Ron Wyden’s response
Jul 13, 2017 — Thank you for adding your name to defend net neutrality. I hear you loud and clear—if the FCC moves forward with its plan to allow big telecom companies to control the web, our free and open internet will be lost.
I’ve been defending our open internet and consumer privacy for many years now, including during the SOPA/PIPA campaign and the many fights for strong net neutrality protections. We've won these uphill battles before because the grassroots used the internet to come together and make your voices heard.
But under this administration, this fight is like nothing we have seen before. That’s why we organized a Net Neutrality Day of Action this week to call on people across the country to submit comments to the FCC demanding that we keep the internet open for creativity, small business purposes, and to ensure the internet does not become a “pay to play” fast lane for the wealthy few.
I believe with your voices shouting loud and clear we can do it again. Submit your comment now: https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/search/filings?proceedings_name=17-108. We have until August 17 to make our voices heard, and it’s up to each of us to take action.
I assure you, I will continue my fight in the Senate to protect our free and open internet, and to stop any attempt to roll back the critical regulations that keep the internet the magical place of cat videos, small business start ups, organizing tools, and political commentary that it is today.
Thank you for taking action,
Sen. Ron Wyden
