Sign and send the petition to the FCC: The internet is a public utility
The internet has become central to American life and the modern economy, but is still regulated as a private "service" instead of a public utility.
Regulating the internet as a public utility would solve a lot of problems and it would allow the FCC to prohibit internet service providers from creating internet "fast lanes" and "slow lanes" to extort payments from companies like Netflix.
Title II of the Communications Act of 1934 already grants the FCC the authority to declare the internet a public utility and provide greater regulation to the telecommunications industry. It's time for the FCC to exercise that authority.
Sign and send the petition to the FCC: It's time to regulate the internet as a public utility.
