Statement of Gigi Sohn on the July 12 Net Neutrality Day of Action

Comcast and the big Internet access providers already succeeded in getting rid of the rules that protect your online privacy. Now they’re coming for your Internet. By asking the FCC to get rid of the net neutrality rules, they will turn the Internet into the worst of cable TV – unless consumers stop them. As someone who has helped make these decisions, I can tell you that it matters that you speak out and tell your story. And that time is now.

Here’s how you do it. Go to: Write to the FCC and your representatives in Congress about:

  1. How the open Internet has benefited you

  2. Why you buy Internet access

  3. How little choice you have in providers

  4. Whether you think there should be rules to protect consumers
