My name is Dane Jasper (/u/danejasper), and I co-founded Sonic in 1994, at a time when many people hadn’t yet heard the terms “internet”, “email address” or “World Wide Web.” Today, Sonic is the largest independent ISP in Northern California. As a 24-year industry veteran, I've seen a lot of change, but I remain committed to the concept of alternative competitive broadband access services, which is why I continue to fight for net neutrality.
Sonic firmly believes that internet providers should NOT be able to charge content creators—like Netflix or CNET—more money to stream their service, or have the ability to block others entirely. The internet should remain open and equal for all. Sonic will continue to do everything it can to stand up for net neutrality, whether the regulations require it or not.
I’ll be sticking around to answer your questions on net neutrality and what’s at stake for you and everyone else who uses and loves the internet amid the FCC’s pending rollback of net neutrality regulations. Ask away!
