It's Official: Trump and Pai Plan to Destroy Net Neutrality
The Trump administration has officially launched its attack on Net Neutrality — if it succeeds, the internet as we know it will be gone for good.
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has unveiled his plan to dismantle Net Neutrality.
Here it is in a nutshell: Abolish Net Neutrality. Cross our fingers that the phone and cable companies promise to be good.
Yeah, right. These are the same companies that promise to be at your house between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and don’t show up until the following week. The same companies that were caught repeatedly violating Net Neutrality before strong rules were on the books.1 The same companies that admitted that if it weren’t for Net Neutrality they would discriminate against websites and content.2
Tell Chairman Pai, the Trump administration and Congress to LEAVE NET NEUTRALITY ALONE.
We'll be sure to file your petition signatures and comments in FCC docket 17-108.
