Support an Open and Uncensored Internet

    1. Petition by

      Common Cause

Major telecommunications companies are intent on transforming the Internet – from an information center for all of us to a profit center for them. They want to charge consumers extra for use of the websites and applications we want most.

These internet providers are investing big money in a legal and lobbying campaign to end net neutrality, the principle that Internet users should be able to access any web content or applications, without restrictions or limitations. In fact, Verizon was just in federal court, challenging the Federal Communications Commission for tighter control of the Internet.

Net neutrality has driven the Internet’s growth, fueled innovation and altered how we communicate. We must make certain that for-profit interests do not destroy the democratic culture of the web.

      Though we should pay for access to Internet, we should not have to pay extra for how we choose to use our access, so long as it's legal.
