We want to say thank you. Thanks to every single talk, protest, article, bar conversation, blog and tweet, new rules to protect the open net were approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the US and people power won the day. You spoke out, they listened.
The new US protections on net neutrality – the concept that all information and services should have equal access online – are a fitting way to cap the Web’s 25th anniversary year of action.
Shortly before the vote took place, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the Web and founder of the World Wide Web Foundation, addressed the FCC session via video. If you missed it, you can catch up here.
