Save the Internet from regulation by AT&T, Verizon and Comcast.

Sign the Petition -- Right now Congress is being pushed to abandon the First Amendment of the Internet -- a principle called "network neutrality" that preserves the free and open Internet. Congress needs to hear from you today or they will hand over control of what you do online to companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast.
Politicians are trading favors for campaign donations from these companies. They're being wooed by people like AT&T's CEO, who says "the Internet can't be free."

Don't Let Congress Ruin the Internet:
Unless we speak out to our members of Congress they could move to allow large telephone and cable companies to control what you do, where you go and what you watch online.To learn more, visit: http://www.savetheinternet.com/

Google CEO Eric Schmidt went before a politely hostile industry audience to map out his company’s vision for a better Internet . Schmidt: Principles for a Better Internet
Schmidt listed four “calls to action” for the future of the Internet:
Defending freedom of speech;
Promoting universal broadband access;
Protecting Net Neutrality; and
Pushing for government transparency
These four principles are not just critical to a better Internet, Schmidt said, but are the “basic principles” driving the great American experiment.
