WhiteHouse.gov: President Obama reacts to FCC decision on Net Neutrality


(February 26, 2015) – Today’s FCC decision will protect innovation and create a level playing field for the next generation of entrepreneurs – and it wouldn’t have happened without Americans like you.

More than 4 million people wrote in to the FCC, overwhelmingly in support of a free and fair internet. Countless others spoke out on social media, petitioned their government, and stood up for what they believe.

I ran for office because I believed that nothing can stand in the way of millions of voices calling for change. That’s the backbone of our democracy – and you’ve proven that this timeless principle is alive and well in our digital age.

So to all the people who participated in this conversation, I have a simple message:

Thank you,

(signed by President Barack Obama)
