Internet Association Calls For Enforceable Net Neutrality Rules On Day Of Action

BECKERMAN: “Without strong, enforceable net neutrality rules in place, innovation online will be stifled, consumers will have fewer and worse choices across the web, and the next generation of ground-breaking websites and apps will never come to be.”

 

Washington, DC – Today, Internet Association launched its Net Neutrality Day of Action website to educate Americans about the essential role net neutrality plays in preserving a free and open internet and encourage them to make their voices heard at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

“Net Neutrality is fundamental to the continued success of the internet,” said Internet Association President & CEO Michael Beckerman. “The internet is a place where the best ideas, products, and services can compete on an even playing field. Without strong, enforceable net neutrality rules in place, innovation online will be stifled, consumers will have fewer and worse choices across the web, and the next generation of ground-breaking websites and apps will never come to be.”

The website, iadayofaction.org, features:

  • A brief video explaining the importance of net neutrality and how to comment on the FCC’s website
  • A listicle describing the current state of play for net neutrality\
  • Detailed instructions on how to submit a comment to the FCC

“I encourage anyone who believes in a free and open internet to tell the FCC that they must preserve strong, enforceable net neutrality rules,” added Beckerman.
