Net Neutrality

Major telecommunications companies want to sell Internet service the same way they sell cable television access, hitting consumers with extra charges for access to popular websites and applications. Common Cause is fighting to preserve and strengthen open Internet or "net neutrality" rules that would allow Internet users to access any web content they want, post their own content, and use any applications they choose, without restrictions or limitations imposed by service providers.

Save the Internet!

Major telecom and cable companies are seeking unprecedented control over what you can see and say online. If the FCC’s plan to allow fast lanes for the few goes forward, the rest of us will suffer. The deep-pocketed will pay to move their online content at top speed, consigning nonprofit, independent and dissenting voices to the slow lane.
