High-speed internet is critical to American life – most of us need it to work, attend classes, buy groceries, or get medical care. Yet unlike other essential utilities like electricity, water and home-phone service, there are no rules to hold giant broadband providers accountable to consumers.

Sign our petition supporting the FCC’s ability to set strong rules that will ensure consumers are protected from companies slowing down your internet speeds, or even blocking your access to competitor’s websites.


Broadband is an essential service, and we urge the FCC to set strong rules to require broadband providers treat all internet traffic the same, and protect consumers from anti-competitive practices that include website blocking, throttling of internet speeds, and paid prioritization. We also urge you to ensure the rules address internet security and public safety, so the FCC can require companies to take the necessary step to prevent internet outages.
