On MTV in 2007, Joe Niederberger, a small business owner and former Internet engineer in New Jersey, asked Barack Obama a question about Net Neutrality. And he got a clear promise to protect Internet freedom. Now, that Internet freedom is under attack. Obama’s new FCC Chair – a cable industry lobbyist -- threatens to break that promise.
Watch the video:
With America having some of the slowest, most expensive Internet access in the world, the FCC should be making the Internet better -- not worse.
The new FCC Chair should carry out President Obama’s promise and support Net Neutrality. If he won’t, he should step down so the president can appoint someone who will stand up for Internet freedom and make the Internet better for all of us.
