NPM agrees that Internet rights are civil rights. On December 14, 2017, the FCC voted to remove Internet protections. The FCC orders reclassify Internet services as “information” rather than “telecommunications” services and eliminate current prohibitions on “blocking,” “throttling” (slowing down) and “paid prioritization” (faster delivery of content for higher prices). The rollback of Net Neutrality threatens core American values like freedom of expression and association including our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
