July 12th: The Day of Action on Net Neutrality
The fight for Net Neutrality is once again upon us! I never thought it would happen so soon, but here we are again. We are left scratching our heads wondering why, after we already convinced the FCC to rule in our favor in SUPPORT of Net Neutrality, we are having to fight this same fight.
Blake Irving, CEO & Board Director for GoDaddy, has an excellent blog post entitled, “The Free and Open Net is Under Attack, Again.” In his well-written post, he outlines all of the reasons this fight is so important. And, why everyone from consumers to small businesses should stand up and have your voice heard. We shouldn’t let the corporate giants and ISPs dictate how we use the internet and who’s traffic is “more important” than ours.
The fact of the matter is we need Net Neutrality if we want a new, vibrant economy. Big and small businesses alike are aligned around the idea that an open Internet creates opportunity and spurs market growth. The Internet isn’t just a utility – it is the utility fueling our global economy. - Blake Irving | CEO & Board Director | GoDaddy
If you are not familiar with the Net Neutrality movement and what it means to you, I highly recommend you take 10 minutes and read just what Blake has to say. It’s an eye-opening bit of reading material, to say the least. VividRock, along with out outstanding employees, agree that this is something we must all fight to protect.
It may seem like an uphill battle, but there is power in your voice. Even Thomas Jefferson, a man renowned for his belief that a little government goes a long way, once wrote, “the basis of our government is opinion of the people.” - Blake Irving | CEO & Board Director | GoDaddy
Please, take 5 minutes out of your day to let your voice be heard and your opinion be known. It’s simple and easy to do:
- Go to the FCC’s website and you will see Filing #17-108 – Restoring Internet Freedom.
- Click “+ Express” in the top right corner of this filing
- Fill out the form and let the FCC know you want your freedom protected and enforced
Also, go to BattleForTheNet.Com‘s page to “Join the Day of Action for Net Neutrality on July 12th.” Let’s show them that, no matter how many times they try this power-play, we are not willing to back down.
We look forward to being your “Bedrock of Success”!
