Hi everyone,

SaveTheInternet.com is launching Monday (more info below) and I would encourage ISPs to sign on to the coalition -- especially since it's our networks that are going to be the first folks discriminated against if network neutrality gets completely dumped (Brand X being only the beginning). You can sign up here:


It takes about 60 seconds.



More info on the coalition:

SavetheInternet.com Coalition Statement of Principles

We believe that the Internet is a crucial engine for economic growth and democratic discourse. We urge Congress to take steps now to preserve network neutrality, a guiding principle of the Internet, and to ensure that the Internet remains open to innovation and progress.

Network neutrality is the Internet’s First Amendment. Without it, the Internet is at risk of losing the openness and accessibility that has revolutionized democratic participation, economic innovation and free speech.

From its beginnings, the Internet was built on a cooperative, democratic ideal. It has leveled the playing field for all comers. Everyday people can have their voices heard by thousands, even millions of people. Network neutrality has prevented gatekeepers from blocking or discriminating against new economic, political and social ideas.

The major telecommunications legislation now under consideration in Congress must include meaningful and enforceable network neutrality requirements to keep the Internet free and open to all.

Here are some of the Web site’s features:
