Join Senators Sanders & Franken to preserve net neutrality

From Senator Sanders:

At a time of increased corporate control over the media and the flow of information, it is absolutely imperative that the Internet remain on a level playing field, open to all. Whether you are a major news corporation or a one-person blogging operation, whether you are Walmart or a family-owned small business, there should be net neutrality for all.

Right now the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering a rule that would allow large Internet providers like Verizon and Comcast to charge businesses for faster access to Internet users. This rule would give large corporations yet another advantage over small Internet companies and average citizens.  These types of pay-to-play agreements will end the democratic foundation of the Internet, and strike a major blow against the free flow of ideas.

Join me and my colleague Senator Al Franken in protecting net neutrality so that big telecom can’t pick winners and losers online.

Our free and open Internet has made invaluable contributions to democracy here in the United States and around the world.  We must not allow the FCC to let big corporations to turn a profit by putting a fee on the free flow of ideas.

Please, join me to protect net neutrality. Add your name today!

Thank you for your support on this enormously important issue.
