Help California Secure Net Neutrality Protections: Support S.B. 822

Internet users were already at the mercy of ISPs, like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon before the FCC repealed net neutrality protections. Now they don’t have to treat everything you access online equally. A new bill in California would provide strong protections for an open and free Internet.

Californians: say you support net neutrality and S.B. 822

Despite the huge outcry from the public, 2017 saw the FCC vote to repeal net neutrality.

Congress can and should act to save net neutrality and ISP privacy on a national scale, federal protections do not exist today. In response, states should use their own leverage to try to keep the Internet free and open. That includes requiring any ISP that receives state funds or access to taxpayer-funded infrastructure to adhere to net neutrality principles.

On the first day that the California legislature met in 2018, State Sen. Scott Wiener introduced a bill that would help create the most comprehensive net neutrality protections in the country: S.B. 822. State Sen. Wiener's bill is one gold standard of net neutrality legislation, and Californians deserve to see it become law.

Voice your support for net neutrality protections and keep the big ISPs from controlling how and what you see on the Internet.
