This Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is holding an important meeting to consider a net neutrality framework for the internet.

The decisions that the FCC makes impact the future of the internet itself.  By enshrining open access into regulation, the FCC can ensure that the internet remains a level playing field for innovative content, services, and applications and does not break apart into various pay-to-play private networks.

Please ask your Representative today to join me in calling for rules that allow consumers to access the lawful internet content of their choice, run applications and services of their choice, connect to their choice of legal devices, ensure transparency and competition among network providers and content/service/application providers, and prevent internet service providers from discriminating against any legal content or applications.

Equally important, in an increasingly wireless world it is critical from the consumer perspective that the same network neutrality laws should apply to all providers regardless of whether they are wireline or wireless.

Your efforts in ensuring net neutrality will allow a free and competitive market for internet content and preserve a free and open internet.

 Please ask your representative to sign onto the Jared Polis letter in support of net neutrality today.

Congressman Jared Polis

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
