Grassroots groups to FCC: We need real net neutrality

Reclaim the Media joined 80 other grassroots organizations in calling upon the FCC and Chairman Julius Genachowski to enact genuine open Internet principles,including enforceable net neutrality protections. Read our letter here.

Our strong recommendations include a ban on paid prioritization, so that internet providers cannot arbitrarily slow down certain websites or services, and no second-class status for wireless Internet when it comes to net neutrality.

Chairman Genachowski recently outlined a proposal for Internet policy which unfortunately falls far short in these and other areas, and would completely fail to fulfill President Obama's promise to protect an open Internet for all Americans. The FCC is scheduled to vote on the issue on Dec. 21.

The media's job is to interest the public in the public interest. -John Dewey
