I am writing to Sonic to request that they take the lead of North Idaho ISP YourT1WiFi and block any Big Tech Company censoring and blocking free speech. Sonic has always been about privacy and I would assume they feel the same about protecting speech and user choice on the internet. Big Tech is overstepping by blocking websites and censoring free speech.

I have linked an article to the ISP I referenced above.

Thank you,
Brian Mansell

But then Sonic becomes a censor and takes away its members' choices.

Brian,

YourT1WiFi is not blocking Facebook and Twitter for every user. They are only blocking them for those users that request them to be blocked. The blocking that they provide is in no way about protecting speech, it is only about providing users with a choice that they request and only those users that request it.

As for the question of 'blocking free speech' by Big Tech Companies. They have a right to block and censor as they see fit within their own policies. See question number 2 and bullet points under it on this Freedom Forum Institute website:
