    To Chairman Tom Wheeler--

    There needs to be several scheduled large, open public field hearings on net neutrality before September.   These need to be announced well in advance and made easily accessible to all interested citizens.

    The open internet is too important to be decided without such hearings. Closed door hearings between the FCC and select  lobbyists and insiders for the Telecommunication industry are not good enough.  You need to shut down any 'good old boy' network that you brought with you from your days as a lobbyist in that industry and do your job as an appointed public servant working for the trust of ALL the People.

    Please support real net neutrality that bans pay lanes and classifies the internet as a Class 2 public utility.  

    Any other solution will stifle innovation and is not acceptable to The People.  

    Your boss, President Obama himself, called for a fair and OPEN internet today in his speech today (8-6-2014) at the U.S. Africa Business Forum in Washington.

    Best,
