On April 26, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai announced a proposal to begin dismantling the Open Internet Order. The Order, adopted by the FCC in 2015 after robust public input by millions of Americans, established basic rules-of-the-road for internet service providers and ensured that net neutrality is the law of the land.

Now, as the FCC prepares for a May 18 vote on Pai’s proposal, the millions of Americans, small businesses, and consumer advocates that asked for the rules are gearing up to defend them.
