Net neutrality gone. We get screwed.

On June 11, 2018, FCC Chair Ajit Pai's repeal of net neutrality took effect. Since then, Big Cable has gotten away with murder, throttling data and controlling what we see and do online.

During California's worst-ever wildfire, Verizon throttled the Santa Clara Fire Department’s unlimited data plan, putting lives in danger.(1) T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T were caught throttling access to YouTube and Netflix, and AT&T zero-rated its own video service to encourage customers to use it.(2,3) CenturyLink forced customers who had already paid for internet to watch ads before unthrottling their speeds.(4)

Ajit Pai even used the repeal as an excuse to shut down California’s gold standard net neutrality law.(5)

That's why Courage Campaign has joined with nearly 100 other public interest groups to call on the Senate to hold a vote on the Save the Internet Act, the bill that saves net neutrality. And on June 11, the one-year anniversary of the FCC repeal, we're joining the day of action to make this vote happen.

Courage Campaign members are joining a major mobilization to save net neutrality on Tuesday. Will you chip in $5 to help make it a success?

Unless net neutrality is restored, things are only going to get worse.

Comcast is investigating pathways to paid prioritization -- throwing us into internet slow lanes unless we pay premium prices.(6) Recent studies show that all of the big ISPs have been throttling speeds.(7) And with no net neutrality protections, the costs for the upcoming 5G networks are going to skyrocket.(8)

The Save the Internet Act will put a stop to all of these violations, and it's incredibly popular with more than 80% of the country -- but Mitch McConnell won't let it come to a vote.

On Tuesday, we're holding him accountable. A pro-internet senator is going to the Senate floor to call out McConnell publicly, and our coalition of net neutrality advocates is going to make sure that the internet is watching.

This Tuesday will be the day we save net neutrality, and we need your help to make it a success. Will you chip in $5?

Yours in the fight for our internet,

Caitlin, along with Analeeza, Annie, Brenna, Diego, Eddie, Gabby, Lindsay, Mai, Mary, Molly, Raquel, and Scottie (the Courage team)
