The Open Internet & the Freedom of Speech

High Speed Internet Access = Legal Right

Make high speed internet access a legal right. Why? Because people dependent on it for day to day survival. As the recent Iranian election has demonstrated, the internet is a lifeline for millions of people in and outside the US. It brings families together, it helps diagnose and cure ailments, it fosters education, it promotes small business, and at the end of the day, it provides simple pleasures to a tired soul.

 

Countries like France and Finland have declared internet access as a fundamental legal right...and the US is actually the only country with a bill to throttle internet access...
