Overview

Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality is a world-wide day of awareness during which companies, thinkers and influencers from all over the internet urged people to write to the Federal Communication Commission regarding the proposed repeal of net neutrality protections.

Background

In 2015, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to reclassify broadband access as a public utility under Title II. The measure helped ensure net neutrality, which prevented ISPs from pursuing paid prioritization agreements for the so-called “fast-lane Internet” and give the governing body more regulatory powers over business activities of the broadband industry in the United States.

On April 26th, 2017, however, Ajit Pai, whom President Donald Trump named chairman of the FCC in January 2017, announced his plans to repeal the Title II measures.[1]

Developments

On June 6th, numerous companies announced their participation in the Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality.[2] Started by the activist group Fight for the Future, the Day of Action would see more than 200 companies joining in support of net neutrality protections.
