Net Neutrality and Democracy



TOPIC: Major telecommunications companies want to sell Internet service the same way they sell cable television access, hitting consumers with extra charges for access to popular websites and applications. Several groups are fighting to preserve and strengthen open Internet or “net neutrality” rules that would allow Internet users to access any web content they want, post their own content, and use any applications they choose, without restrictions or limitations imposed by service providers. We will talk with representatives from the Center for Media Justice and Common Cause – two of the groups fighting to keep the internet open.
