DreamHost has long been a proponent of net neutrality, educating
customers, co-signing letters to the FCC, and participating in the
Net Neutrality Day of Action.
Net neutrality is essential to creating a startup-friendly environment,
leveling the playing field and ensuring new companies can compete with
established ones. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration,
there are nearly 30 million small businesses in the United States,
representing 99.9 percent of all American businesses. Without the
protections of net neutrality, these businesses could be forced to pay
premium rates for internet access or be hidden from search engines,
threatening their growth and survival.
“Our customers have big dreams and their websites, apps, and businesses
deserve fair and equal access to all internet users,” said Brett Dunst,
DreamHost vice president of corporate communications. “We’re taking a
stand for them, and for everyone who believes in the democratizing power
of the internet. We thank the Senate for their leadership in continuing
the fight and we call on all Americans to contact their Senators to
express support for a free and open internet.”
DreamHost is a member of the Battle
for the Net coalition, where the public can find tools and resources
to contact their congressional representatives and urge them to action.
