Dear FCC: Please Don’t Flush Away Net Neutrality

blogpost_625x400_2

Here at Namecheap, we believe strongly in free and open Internet for all – and that’s why we think it’s vital to spread the word about net neutrality before it’s too late. Read on for more info!

What’s net neutrality?

Net neutrality is about equal treatment for all Internet users. It’s the idea that everyone should have equal access to all content on the Internet. We believe that Internet service providers should not be allowed to discriminate when it comes to content delivery.

Who’s this FCC?

The FCC is the Federal Communications Commission. They are the US government agency in charge of regulating wire, radio, TV, and cable communications for the nation.

What’s the problem?

Lately, the FCC seems intent on creating an Internet “fast lane.” This means that broadband providers like Comcast and Time Warner would be allowed to offer big companies faster content delivery, leaving smaller startups and individuals in slower tiers.

So let’s send the FCC a message!

If you think a slow lane is wrong, and if you want to continue having full access to the Internet you know and love, then help us tell the FCC not to flush away our rights. Visit netneutrality.com and…

• Check out the music video posted there – it’s a message for the FCC.  Watch it, share it, sing it in the shower.

• Help us raise funds for online freedom fighters Fight for the Future – and get a fab deal on a domain name at the same time. One-year transfers $3.88 and first-year registrations $5.88!

• Sign the petition to preserve net neutrality.

The fight is far from over. Stay tuned to Namecheap for more opportunities to take positive action on this important issue.
