Rally for Net Neutral Municipal Broadband

Portland City Hall, 1221 SW 4th Avenue
1221 Southwest 4th Avenue
Portland, OR 97204, US (map)



We are demanding the city immediately prioritize the development of a municipal broadband network.

Comcast and other large internet service providers have successfully lobbied to repeal net neutrality, sell information about what you do online, and prevent localities from properly regulating them. Municipal broadband is the last line of defense against internet service provider abuses which threaten freedom of information, digital equality, and democracy itself.

Municipal broadband is something many cities such as Tacoma, WA and Sandy, OR already have. In Portland we have been planning to build a municipal broadband network decades, now that our internet freedoms are under attack, it’s an idea whose time has come.
