the day the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality takes effect

It’s Monday, June 11: the day the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality takes effect.

You may not notice any changes immediately. We don’t know exactly when or how AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast will start throttling speeds and creating fast and slow lanes on the internet.

But we know it’s coming. And that’s why we need to force the House to save net neutrality.

Thanks to your activism, a bipartisan majority of senators voted to overturn the FCC and save net neutrality.

Now the fight is in the House, where we are gaining more support for the CRA resolution by the day. But we still need dozens more reps to sign a discharge petition to force a floor vote.

There’s not a moment to lose. Every day the American people go without protections for a free and open internet will be one too many.

Tell your member of Congress: Sign the discharge petition for the CRA resolution to restore net neutrality!

The pundits and Big Cable lobbyists said we could never win the CRA resolution in the Senate, but we did.

We flooded the Senate with millions of calls and emails from constituents — and we got all 49 members of the Democratic caucus, along with three Republicans, to pass the CRA. It’s going to be an uphill climb, but if we make sure our representatives hear us loud and clear, we can win in the House too.

86% of Americans oppose the repeal of net neutrality, including a huge majority of Republicans. With multiple Senate Republicans voting to overturn the FCC, we have a strong shot of winning the House if we get the support of all Democrats and about two dozen Republicans.

We proved the pundits wrong once, and will prove them wrong again. But we need to raise our voices and make sure every representative knows you expect them to stand on the side of Team Internet, and not Team Cable.
