1). Stop Censorship in Internet Service

1). Stop Censorship in Internet Service: The Internet is quickly becoming
an essential medium for communication, and high-speed access promises to
be its future. But it will be a very different future if the few companies
who control the high-speed Internet access wires are allowed to decide
what content we can receive.  Because high-speed telephone service (DSL)
is proving more difficult to deploy than cable, cable is dominating the
residential market for high-speed access. And the cable market will soon
be dominated by two companies that already decide which television
stations their cable subscribers can see. In fact, we are now beginning to
see troubling signs that they intend to become just as selective in terms
of Internet content.

Corporate censorship represents a significant potential threat to online
free speech.  Now is the time to ensure that cable companies open their
wires to the most robust content possible.

Take Action!  You can read more about broadband access and send a letter
to the Chairmen of AOL, AT&T, the Federal Communications Commission and
the Commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission to ask that they preserve
free speech in the Internet's future at:
