This week it was announced that the FCC will vote to repeal the net neutrality rules that were set up in 2015. This repeal moves the Internet from being a Title II system to a Title I system.
Many Americans are understandably concerned, and I want to lay out some great ways to help let your voice be heard.
Now while posting on social media, Reddit, etc. may be fun, it does little to help save net neutrality. There are a few things you can do that will help. Here are a few great actions to take.
Call Your Representative
For years I have said the best way to protect net neutrality is to have a law to protect it, not an FCC rule. I highly suggest you call your representatives and tell them how important net neutrality is to you. You can find the phone number for your representatives in the house and senate by entering your zip code HERE.
Make sure to be polite on the phone. Remember you are likely going to speak with a staffer and being rude will do nothing but hurt your cause.
Write Your Representative
Now that you have called, send a polite letter clearly laying out why you think net neutrality should be saved. Take a few minutes and make it a good letter sent the old fashioned way through the mail. You will find this a far more effective method than sending an email.
You can find the mailing address of your representatives and senators by entering your zip code HERE.
Please remember the best way to let your voice be heard is to reach out directly to the people who can do something about net neutrality. In this case, your representatives in the house and senate.
There are numerous petitions out there right now to save net neutrality. Be careful about some of them because they are sites I have never heard of asking for a lot of personal information.
As always be careful of sites asking for a ton of personal information.
