The FCC recently voted to gut rules protecting net neutrality. Eighty percent of Americans support protecting net neutrality, including 75 percent of Republicans, yet the FCC and chairman Ajit Pai pandered to big telecom and cable corporations (and their former employers) against the will of the American people.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Ajit Pai himself commissioned the millions of fake comments in support of the repeal just to make himself and his cronies feel less lonely. If a Democratic administration comes into office in 2020, this repeal will be reversed and a free (as in speech) internet will be restored. For us here in Utah, there are three things we can do to try to fight the FCC:

Tell Utah’s attorney general to sue the FCC for its actions.

Tell the Utah delegation you will vote for the candidates who will restore the internet to its former glory.

Pressure the Legislature to enforce net neutrality in Utah.

We will not go down without a fight.
