Comcast has been acting like turds lately, and it's high time something was done about it.

"An investigation by the Associated Press caught Comcast secretly inspecting online communications and crippling users' ability to share information with one another.

This is a gross violation of Net Neutrality -- the longstanding principle that ensures a free and open Internet. Free Press has filed a legal complaint demanding that the FCC take action to protect the Internet's free flow of information. By sending the letter you join the fight to stop Comcast and other gatekeepers. "

Translation: Comcast has been prioritizing certain Internet traffic and de-prioritizing other (such as bittorrent) traffic. This would be like if your city's police department decided to re rout your car on the way to your work so that other, more important people wouldn't experience as much traffic on their way.

Fill out this form to send a letter to the FCC.

  1. I heard a report about this on NPR this past weekend. A reporter attempted to download a copy of the bible peer to peer from a Comcast subscriber, and was blocked time and time again. A pop-up repeatedly informed him the line was too bogged down, and to try again later. Obviously bullshit.
