In Philly, companies like DuckDuckGo and Linode joined the likes of Netflix, Dropbox and Amazon in adding a splash page on their site that allows users to write to Congress in support of the Open Internet Rules.

Comcast CEO Brian Roberts spoke recently about the company’s stance on Net Neutrality. Today, the company published a blog post in support of Net Neutrality (with one significant caveat).
