Obama FCC caves on net neutrality

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 3 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "...the rule, which will be voted on during tomorrow's FCC meeting, falls drastically short of earlier pledges by President Obama and the FCC Chairman to protect the free and open Internet.

The rule is so riddled with loopholes that it's become clear that this FCC chairman crafted it with the sole purpose of winning the endorsement of AT&T and cable lobbyists, and not defending the interests of the tens of millions of Internet users."

Sorry but it seems like an oxy-moron to think that power-hungry politicians are pushing net neutrality out of the goodness of their hearts. It is really just another power-grab done in the name of "the people."

I think it is time we cut the US out... (1)
