The Internet is on fire with news that the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit just struck down network neutrality.

The Court ruled that the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Open Internet ("net neutrality") rules were improperly written.

We are reviewing the decision - and we'll have more details for you soon - but here's what you need to know now: The court said that the FCC made a mistake more than a decade ago by declaring broadband to be a lightly-regulated "information service."

That's the bad news. Here's the good news: the Court made clear that if the FCC reclassifies broadband as a "telecommunications service" it can write strong net neutrality rules to protect consumers. So we are calling on the FCC to do just that. Add your name here.
