What to say
What we need
Clearly and politely state your desire for the city to create a municipal broadband network to serve the people of Portland.
Why we need it
- Cable companies have taken control of their national regulators at the FCC and passed legislation preventing localities from creating their own policies to police them.
- Cable companies such as Comcast have successfully lobbied to repeal Net Neutrality which ensured the internet was a free and open platform for communication. We need a public network to ensure freedom of information is maintained online.
- Cable companies such as Comcast have successfully lobbied to repeal important privacy regulation which prevented internet service providers from selling or using information about what you do online. We need a public network to ensure this privacy.
- The internet service currently being provide by companies is mediocre, unreliable, and vastly overpriced. A municipal broadband network would be fast, more reliable, and affordable for Portland residents.
