Will the FCC Chairman Protect the Internet?

An appeals court ruled in April that the FCC lacked authority to ensure an open, affordable, and accessible Internet because of a decision it made during the Bush-era to classify broadband as a title I service instead of a title II service- with dire consequences for people of color and the poor. The Obama FCC can now fix this bad history by simply reclasifying broadband. According to the Washington Post, however, Genachowski intends to do nothing. Contact FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski at 202-418-1000 or [email protected], and Commissioner Mignon Clyburn at 202-418-2100 or [email protected], and urge them to reclassify broadband as a Title II service. Check out MAG-Net's grassroots policy brief to learn more about "Reclassification" and why it matters to communities at the margins.
