IamA FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel who voted for Net Neutrality, AMA!
Hi Everyone! I’m FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel. I voted for net neutrality. I believe you should be able to go where you want and do what you want online without your internet provider getting in the way. And I’m not done fighting for a fair and open internet.
I’m an impatient optimist who cares about expanding opportunity through technology. That’s because I believe the future belongs to the connected. Whether it’s completing homework; applying for college, finding that next job; or building the next great online service, community, or app, the internet touches every part of our lives.
So ask me about how we can still save net neutrality. Ask me about the fake comments we saw in the net neutrality public record and what we need to do to ensure that going forward, the public has a real voice in Washington policymaking. Ask me about the Homework Gap—the 12 million kids who struggle with schoolwork because they don’t have broadband at home. Ask me about efforts to support local news when media mergers are multiplying.
Ask me about broadband deployment and how wireless airwaves may be invisible but they’re some of the most important technology infrastructure we have.
EDIT: Online now. Ready for questions!
EDIT: Thank you for joining me today. Hope to do this again soon!
