Preserving an Open Internet

The Internet is a democratizing force where Latinos, and others that mainstream media has pushed aside for decades, can tell their stories fairly and accurately. At the end of 2010, the FCC issued an order to ensure that Internet service providers not be allowed to block or degrade access to any content. Unfortunately, the FCC did not fully extend these rules to mobile Internet service providers. This is a big problem because many Latinos rely exclusively on their mobile phones to get online. NHMC will urge the FCC to strengthen its mobile rules, and will monitor and report to the FCC any mobile providers that are acting unfairly or in contravention of the new rules.
