The "petition" in this case is just 7 words.

"Reclassify The Internet As A Common Carrier"

Please feel free to add your own comments, as this helps demonstrate that each and very one of our submissions was done by a real person.

The background is this: On January 14, 2014, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit struck down the FCC's Open Internet rules on a technicality, that the internet was not classified as a common carrier by the FCC. This threatens the whole future of net neutrality, and would allow big telecom companies to discriminate in how they carry internet traffic.

But all the FCC simply needs to do is correct this classification oversight, entirely within their own administrative power, and reclassify the internet as a common carrier, which all common sense says that it is.

More than 100,000 people signed a petition on the White House website asking President Obama to take action. But while expressing his support the president declined to intercede with the FCC himself.

So it's all up to us now. Please submit this form to send your comments supporting net neutrality directly to the FCC.
