Today on Your Call: Are we losing open access to the internet?

  

On today's Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the fight for net neutrality. A federal appeals court recently overturned the FCC’s "Open Internet Order,” which is a set of rules that prohibits internet providers from giving preference to applications or specific content. Critics say overturning those rules could spell the end of open access for all. Whose responsibility is it to keep the internet open? And why does it matter? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Holly Kernan and You.  

Guests:

John Bergmayer, senior staff attorney at Public Knowledge

Michael Hiltzik, business columnist at the LA Times

Josh Levy, internet campaign director with Free Press
