I wrote up a post with some tactics for stopping the FCC over on Facebook and also shared it on Twitter, but just in case it somehow gets lost, I’m reposting the instructions here.
Call and Write Your State Senators
You can find your House representative by visiting https://www.house.gov/representati…/find-your-representative
Find your Senator by visiting https://www.senate.gov/senators/contact/
If you’re phone shy, you can call after hours and leave a voicemail; however, mailboxes often fill and you might not get your voice heard. It’s best to speak with a member of your rep’s team.
You can also use Resist Bot to fax your reps in just a few texts. Text RESIST to 504-09.
File a Public Comment with the FCC’s Proposal
Visit fcc.gov, click “File a Public Comment,” then add “Express Reply” to proceeding 17-108. (It’s the most popular, so it should be on top, but you can search for it if not.)
Email a Complaint to FCC Commissioners
We know at least one commissioner is staunchly against the proposal. Let’s put some pressure on the others. They vote December 14th, and 3 of the 5 members are Republicans. Email them directly and tell them that you are a consumer and disagree with the proposal, and will not support them in future endeavors if they vote to end net neutrality.
Here’s how to contact them.
Federal Communications Commission
445 12th Street SW, Washington, DC 20554
ASL Videophone: 1-844-432-2275
You can also email each commissioner directly: https://www.fcc.gov/about/contact
Call Your Cable and Internet Provider
Some internet providers are supporting the FCC’s proposal because it’ll make them a lot of money. “Coincidently,” AT&T and Verizon are supporting this—and they were the ones charging consumers out the nose before net neutrality was introduced. Call your provider and tell them that if they support the FCC’s proposal, you will no longer be a customer.
Share This Post
It’s important that we put the pressure on the FCC, our reps, AND cable/internet providers. We need to make a lot of noise about this, so please **SHARE THIS POST** often.
If I’ve missed anything, let me know and I’ll update it!
