An Internet open to all; The fight for net neutrality

Modern life depends on the Internet, making it an indispensable part of the information commons. In the world of business, unfettered access to high-speed Internet is essential for preserving competition and innovation in the marketplace. As an information-consuming society, this access also is essential for democracy and for our freedom of expression (even, or perhaps especially, for dissenting voices). If all web users do not have first-class access to the fast lanes of the information highway, we risk being relegated to second-class citizens. We urge every Internet user to speak up for net neutrality.
