IamA FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel. Still here, still fighting for Net Neutrality. AMA!
Hi again! It’s me, FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, coming to chat with you all on the anniversary of the agency’s net neutrality vote. On the FCC, I’m now the only Democrat, the only woman, and the only one here that supports net neutrality—and I believe it’s as important as ever that we keep raising our voices to fight for a fair and open internet. That’s because I think you should be able to go where you want and do what you want online without your internet provider getting in the way.
We’ve had some progress on net neutrality, from the Senate’s bipartisan passage of a resolution disapproving of the FCC’s handiwork, to the lawsuits filed against the FCC, to the states who are moving forward on their own, to the federal investigation into the fake comments we saw in the public record. I’m here to answer questions about how net neutrality is still within our reach.
You can also ask me about my new podcast Broadband Conversations, where I speak to amazing women who are making an impact on our digital lives or anything else FCC-related or not (like what powers me through the day in Washington—lots of mediocre coffee, a bit of good dark chocolate, and a boundless belief that the time has come for all of us to speak up about choices being made in Washington because hey, it’s our future at stake).
I’ll be here from 1:00pm – 2:00pm EST to answer your questions.
EDIT: Thanks reddit. This has been a treat. Until next time!
