EPIC has signed on to a letter from Public Knowledge to the Federal Communications Commission supporting the FCC's decision to begin public proceedings on preserving an open internet. EPIC joins many other public interest groups who have also expressed support for the FCC's initiative. The FCC's proceedings will focus on proposed rulemaking policies that would preserve open internet. EPIC favors the general principles of "network neutrality" and has called on the FCC to preserve privacy safeguards against measures that Internet Service Providers may use to limit access to the internet.
