Last day to tell the FCC you want Net Neutrality

Today is the last day to comment on the FCC’s rules on Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet, i.e. protecting net neutrality and stopping ISPs from limiting or charging extra for certain types of traffic.  Support for net neutrality is overwhelming high (95+% at last count), but adding your support helps.

The easiest way for the FCC to ensure that ISPs support net neutrality is to classify them as common carriers.  That is what we do with our telephone network and it makes sure telephone companies treat all phone calls the same.

Here is a really easy way to tell the FCC you support net neutrality:

  1. Go to http://www.fcc.gov/comments
  2. Click on 14-28
  3. Comment “I want internet service providers classified as common carriers.”
  4. Done

Thanks to @andymatic for this succinct approach.
