Telecom Lobbying

The phone and cable industries that control Internet access for 97 percent of Americans are spending tens of millions of dollars on nearly 600 Washington lobbyists. Their mission is to consolidate industry control over the Internet and kill Network Neutrality before the public (and public interest advocates like Free Press) gets a seat at the table.

Your leaders in Washington need to hear from you right now as the FCC crafts new Net Neutrality rules and a national broadband plan that could make fast, affordable and open Internet a reality for everyone.
