Free and open Internet around the world is at stake.
Big telecom corporations are working world-over to undermine Net Neutrality and bring this vital public resource under their control.
Over the past three decades, the internet has evolved into an open landscape of ideas where every voice has a chance to be heard. It is a backbone of democracy and a critical forum of free expression. But big telecom corporations want to put corporate profits before the public good and create a two-tier Internet, where internet providers sell fast-lane access to corporations that are willing to pay, while the rest of us could get stuck with dial-up speed or worse.
Tell World Leaders: keep the Internet open and free!
The open internet is indispensable to democracy. If we lose Net Neutrality, dissenting political speech from organizations like SumOfUs will be stuck in the slow lane, while corporate propaganda gets delivered at high speed. New startups won't be able to compete with established corporations, because they will either have to pay more for the same access, or else deliver slower service to their customers! This scheme will choke innovation out. We just can't afford to have an Internet fast lane for those who can pay extra, and a slow lane for the rest of us.
Net Neutrality matters. It's what keeps the Internet open, democratic and fast for everyone. Tell world leaders to protect the open Internet.
