Sending Office: Honorable Michael F. Doyle
Letter Sign on Request
Preserve the Open Internet
Ask the FCC to delay Net Neutrality Repeal
Letter closes: December 12th
Please join Communications and Technology Subcommittee Ranking Member Mike Doyle in sending the following letter to Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Pai. The letter requests that the Chairman delay consideration of the “Restoring Internet
Freedom” item and remove it from the FCC’s December Open Meeting Agenda. The “Restoring Internet Freedom” item would repeal the FCC’s Open Internet Order and end Net Neutrality.
The FCC’s current Net Neutrality rules have been upheld in Federal Court and public opinion polls show strong support from all sides of the political spectrum. During the FCC’s public comment process to repeal the Open Internet Order, the Commission received
more than 22 million comments that overwhelmingly called for the Commission to leave the current rules in place.
Today, on Cyber Monday, over 200 online companies sent a
letter to Chairman Pai urging him to keep the current Open Internet rules as they are necessary to ensure the internet remains a free and open marketplace that encourages innovation and supports robust competition.
Here is a short list of others who are opposed to repealing the current rules.
State Attorneys General from Illinois, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine and Maryland, Massachusetts,
Mississippi, Oregon, Vermont, Washington and DC support retaining the existing consumer protections.
Thank you for your consideration.
