Despite public outrage and Congressional pressure, Chairman Ajit Pai succeeded in his repeal of vital net neutrality rules at the Federal Communications Commission’s last open meeting of 2017. This attack on the open internet also rolled back Title II classification of broadband and abdicated the FCC’s regulatory authority over the internet to the Federal Trade Commission. Since the repeal, providers have quietly taken advantage of an internet without protection.
We may have lost the vote at the FCC, but the fight isn’t over yet. On April 10, thanks to public pressure, the House of Representatives passed the Save the Internet Act to restore the FCC’s Open Internet Order that Chairman Pai repealed. Chairman Pai ignored the will of the public, but members of Congress cannot ignore their constituents without electoral consequences. Tell the Senate to pass the #SaveTheNet bill using the tool above.
There is another course of action beyond Congress: Challenging the repeal in court. Public Knowledge has already filed a legal challenge against this decision, and we have a long, successful history of standing up for net neutrality rules and enforcement in court. We are prepared to make a strong case for overturning the FCC’s Order repealing net neutrality rules. As a nonprofit organization, any donation you can provide for our legal fund will help greatly.
