Free Press Is Pushing the FCC to Restore Net Neutrality & Make Broadband Affordable
Net Neutrality keeps the internet free and open — enabling anyone to share and access information of their choosing without interference from companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon.
Net Neutrality is essential to everything we need in our democracy — from educational and economic opportunities to political organizing and dissent.
Net Neutrality is built on the sound legal notion that broadband access must be classified under Title II of the Communications Act, which gives the Federal Communications Commission the comprehensive authority it needs to hold these powerful phone and cable companies accountable.
Restoring Title II oversight would enable the FCC to protect Net Neutrality — and to track service outages, rein in abuses by monopoly-minded internet service providers and help make broadband more affordable, ubiquitous and competitive.
