Join the Internet Countdown

Last year, more than 40,000 websites participated in the Internet Slowdown to demand real net neutrality. It worked! But monopolistic Cable companies are pouring millions into a last ditch effort to derail the FCC's historic vote. Help us flood Washington, DC with calls and emails to show lawmakers that the whole Internet is watching, and we're literally counting down the seconds until we get real net neutrality.

Here's how to join.

Internet users: Spread the word.

Telling everyone about the vote is a key part of winning real net neutrality. We need your help to do just that. If you use twitter, click "Join with Twitter" below, and you can sign up to tweet once a day from now until the vote, or just once right before the vote. It's your choice. If you don't have twitter, then sign up with your email and we'll send you a list of different ways you can help.

Mobilize the web—
add the Countdown to your site!

Show a floating banner! Paste this code at the bottom of your page, before the closing /BODY tag. More info.

<script type="text/javascript">var _cd_options = { animation: 'bottomBar' };</script>
<script src="//"></script>

Paste this code anywhere on your page where you want the banner to show up. More info.

<div><script src="//"></script></div>

(Red version!) Paste this code anywhere on your page where you want the banner to show up. More info.

<script type="text/javascript">var _cd_options = { theme: 'red' };</script>
<div><script src="//"></script></div>

Paste this code anywhere on your page where you want the ad to show up. More info.

<script type="text/javascript">var _cd_options = { animation: 'ad' };</script>
<div><script src="//"></script></div>

There’s a bunch of different ways for sites to participate. The best way? Run this widget. You can place it on your site using just one line of code (see above). Then, link to to drive emails and calls for net neutrality. You can also change your site’s logo (or one of its letters) to a spinning wheel of death or embed this action tool in a high traffic page. NOTE: none of these tools will slow down your site; they just show a symbolic loading symbol.

      Apps: do a push notification

      If you have a mobile app, can you send just one push notification to your users? Your users will love you for it and appreciate being able to easily take action for net neutrality. Tell them that ISPs are threatening to slow your app, and link them to

      Change your profile photos everywhere.

      Protest Internet slow lanes on Twitter, Facebook, any social network by changing your profile photo to the dreaded spinning wheel of death (in your favorite color). Then you can try out these tweets too.

      Share these images!

      We need as many people as possible to know that the vote for net neutrality is coming soon, write Congress and the FCC, and keep fighting until we win. Can you post these images everywhere? You can share these images too.

      Say you're in.

      Are you participating? Tell us so we can list you, announce it to the world, and invite others to join. Starting on 1/26 we’ll be announcing which sites are in. Help us spread the word about the campaign by tweeting something like this or this. Want to show your support in real life? Get the Team Internet shirt (then post a photo, obv.)

      You're our only hope.

      This is the time to go big, visible, and strong - that's the only way we can actually win this fight. We all need to get as many people in our respective audiences motivated to do something. We can make this epic, but only if you help. We need companies to be frontrunners, leaders, and heroes on this, that’s the key ingredient to raising the bar and making sure everyone goes big.

      We realize it's a big ask, but this is the kind of bad internet legislation that comes along (or gets this close to passing) once a decade or so. If it passes we'll be kicking ourselves for decades—every time a favorite site gets relegated to the slow lane, and every time we have to rework or abandon a project because of the uncertain costs paid prioritization creates. Doing the most we can right now seems like the only rational step.

      Let us know if you're interested in principle, and if there's something you need from us to join:
