The FCC Chairman is Julius Genachowski, and you can call and leave a message at 202.418.1000 explaining how this will impact your small online business.

I already pay for high speed Internet access at home and at work. I pay to have my site hosted online, and the faster the server, the more it costs. As far as I'm concerned, I'm already doing my part. I don't feel like I should now have to pay an ISP just so my site performs well enough that visitors don't abandon it while pages load.
Verizon and Google just want to create a new income stream, which means we'll be paying twice for what we already have.
