If you’ve been following the Net Neutrality controversy, to decide whether large corporate ISPs can selectively throttle or restrict otherwise legal Internet traffic (Facebook, Netflix) to those unwilling or unable to pay extra, you may have heard about the Federal Communications Commission voting in a 3-2 divide to repeal regulations ensuring this neutrality, with Commissioners Mignon Clyburn and Jessica Rosenworcel dissenting.
Today the @FCC eliminated its #NetNeutrality rules. That's bad. But here's what's good: This misguided decision awoke a sleeping giant–the American people. And we're going to keep fighting. In court. In Congress. And we won't stop until internet openness is the law of the land.

Here are the lists of the FCC voters’ emails (directly from the FCC contact page – https://www.fcc.gov/about/contact ) if you wish to email them directly. Commissioners Clyburn https://twitter.com/MClyburnFCC and Rosenworcel https://twitter.com/JRosenworcel are defending Net Neutrality. Thank them, and ask the others to defend an unbiased Internet that doesn’t encourage meaningless surcharges in the name of encouraging “innovation.” I’m sure none of us wants to pay extra fees to our Internet service providers just to be able to talk here or play games online, let alone if any of us needs high and reliable Internet speed for business purposes.
