FCC Chief: Yes, Let’s Reclassify the Internet and Save Net Neutrality
It’s game time for net neutrality. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler is proposing new rules to protect the internet, recommending that telecom companies be treated like a public utility and thus overseen by the government. This is a blow to big cable and the push to create a tiered system of internet delivery.
Yay for net neutrality! His proposal also applies net neutrality to mobile, and will prohibit stuff like data throttling.
