Breaking News: Giant net neutrality billboard outside FCC

Hey,

The official FCC deadline for net neutrality comments closed last night at midnight, but there’s still time to make our voices heard. We’ve parked a truck with a giant video billboard directly across the street from the FCC, facing the main entrance to the agency’s headquarters. And we’re playin g a steady stream of net neutrality videos sent in by Internet users all over the world!

This thing is huge — and it’s in an amazing location. FCC employees have been gawking from the windows and stopping by to take flyers and snap photos. We’ll be here all day raising awareness about the importance of the free and open Internet, amplifying the voices of people explaining why net neutrality matters so much to them.

Do you have something to say to the FCC? Make a quick 1 – 2 minute video with your cell phone or web cam of you explaining why you care about the free and open Internet. Send it to us and we’ll play it on the billboard, larger-than-life, for everyone at the FCC to see and hear.

Need some inspiration? The good folks at Namecheap who made this billboard action possible made their own video to help educate the Internet public about the importance of net neutrality. Once you get to the part where people are riding on toilets chasing Wall Street Bankers up a bike ramp, you’ll understand why its already been viewed nearly half a million times.

Head to NetNeutrality.com to check out the video and share it now!

The Internet freedom movement is unstoppable right now. The Internet Slowdown was massive, but it was just the beginning. Earlier today our billboard at the FCC was playing livestreams of rallies in NYC and Philadelphia where hundreds gathered to protest Comcast and Verizon’s attempts to sell off the Internet, and call for Title II reclassification: the only path toward real and lasting net neutrality.

Last chance! Submit your video here to play on the big #FCCbillboard, or if you prefer you can send it directly to ted@namecheap.com with the subject line “Billboard submission.”
