Subject: The Internet

The Internet must remain neutral to all parties. It is the very basis of the Internet itself to be this way. It would cause catastrophic economic and social consequences should the major ISP's desire to charge more for preferred/faster service be realized.

As it is now, neutral and open to everyone, epitomizes American ideals. It is a free, public place that allows free speech and innovative capitalism. Please keep it this way!

Thank you.
