The Battle For The Net coalition urges the public to submit comments in support of the rule to ensure a net neutrality victory

Today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted 3-2 in favor of advancing a rule that would classify broadband internet access as a Title II telecommunications service, clearing the path to restore net neutrality. The rule now advances to an open comment period where individuals can submit their thoughts to the FCC. 

A coalition of organizations, led by Fight for the Future and Demand Progress, is driving comments to the FCC and Congress on their hub site, Battle for the Net. There, individuals can submit comments to the FCC, learn more about the history behind net neutrality, and find out other ways to get involved.

“In the immortal words of CeCe Penison ‘Finally’!” said Caitlin Seeley George (she/her), campaigns director at Fight for the Future. “An overwhelming majority of Americans support net neutrality. Experts have made clear, fact-based cases for Title II classification. Biden and other lawmakers campaigned on bringing back net neutrality. No one should pay any attention to the oppositional astroturf campaigns funded by Big Telecom in an effort to stop the FCC from moving forward. This is absolutely the right step for the FCC to take and will ensure that everyone is able to access the internet without limitations from companies that put their profits ahead of peoples’ rights. The internet is a necessity, and net neutrality will ensure access to this critical resource is not restricted by companies, but is freely accessible and open for all.”

Battle for the Net is the long-running hub for action on net neutrality, and is responsible for sending millions of comments to the FCC and messages and calls to lawmakers.
