Net Neutrality

Obama Asks FCC to classify Internet as Public Utility

Today President Barak Obama publicly called on the FCC to take the strongest measures possible in protecting net neutrality.

Obama's plan calls on the FCC to reclassify broadband services under Title II of the Telecommunications Act, essentially classifying Internet connections as a basic utility like water or electricity. Doing so would prevent Internet service providers from deciding how customers' connections are used.

Advocates have called on the U.S. government and others to implement laws preventing ISPs from creating a so-called "tiered" Internet.
