Will AT&T and Verizon Kill the Internet?
AT&T and Verizon are reviewing plans to acquire the cornerstone domain group for Internet Legislation
San Jose, California (Hotdot, LLC) – SaveTheInternet, the leading Net Neutrality group, is largely responsible for spearheading the Net Neutrality campaign over the last few years. Net Neutrality is just the first of many issues under the SaveTheInternet umbrella. Due to the enormous reach of the http://www.SaveTheInternet.org group, they feature the following areas: Internet Taxation, Censorship, Net Neutrality, Internet Privacy, Digital Rights Management, Spam, and Open Standards. The SaveTheInternet group has over 500 million Google search results and features more than 850 groups that represent over 100 million people.
Hotdot, LLC has confirmed that AT&T and Verizon are reviewing documents that outline how they could take control of all Internet Legislation through the SaveTheInternet message machine by purchasing the group. It is impossible for AT&T and Verizon to create and build an online presence to rival the SaveTheInternet group. The SaveTheInternet group enjoys a Google pagerank of 8, ranks as high as NASCAR and the Olympics, and is better positioned than AT&T’s stalled attempt at Handsoff.org.
SaveTheInternet is largely responsible for temporarily stalling AT&T’s tiered access pricing plan. During the regulatory approval process for the AT&T /BellSouth Merger last year, the Federal Communications Commission required a commitment from AT&T to Net Neutrality principals as a condition for regulatory approval of its merger with BellSouth. The condition has been proven to have no enforcement capability, as noted immediately by FCC chairman Kevin Martin, who opposed the conditions. AT&T’s tiered pricing plan could have a multi-billion dollar consequence to consumers and large Internet companies like Google, Yahoo!, Facebook, YouTube, eBay, and Amazon.com.
Google, eBay, YouTube, and others, have thrown support to the Net Neutrality site The Open Internet Coalition. The site claims to represent over 100 million people, yet the facts indicate that with a Google pagerank of 0 and less than 125 incoming Yahoo! links, it is certain they have limited effectiveness and minimal reach. The PR firm led initiatives have so far been ineffective for both sides of these huge issues. It is clear that the only effective approach to date has been representing the major issues at stake through the SaveTheInternet group. Companies like Yahoo! and Google have much to lose if AT&T or Verizon are able to acquire the SaveTheInternet group.
It has been confirmed that under the current proposal, Freepress.org (who has managed the content at SaveTheinternet.com) will continue to manage the content for Net Neutrality under the http://www.SaveTheInternet.org umbrella. The current domain group owner would not comment on the story and reiterated their support for the Net Neutrality campaign. Hotdot, LLC confirms that offers have been received and that they are still entertaining offers with an anticipated ownership change in time to affect the Presidential elections.
Any questions or offers to purchase the SaveTheInternet Group should be directed to Hotdot, LLC.
