The free flow of information and the exchange of ideas and information are essential to any democracy, and in the past decade the Internet has become essential to citizen dialog. Like radio, TV, and news publishing before it, the Internet serves more than the businesses who profit from it: it serves the people and the society who rely on it for valuable news and information.
The Internet cannot be controlled or dominated by any individuals, groups, or organizations who can drown out smaller or less powerful voices. Net Neutrality is the principle of online fairness. It enables users to access the services they want — and to express themselves online — without meddling by Internet Service Providers (ISP) or those with the most money.
Net Neutrality protections were removed by the FCC in December 2017.
But in Colorado, we helped pass meaningful net neutrality legislation in 2019. There is more to do, however. Join our fight for a fully free and open Internet in Colorado and across the nation.
