White House Responds to Net Neutrality Petition

bostonidealist (2009964) writes "The White House has officially responded to a We The People petition created on January 15, 2014, which urged "...the President to direct the FCC to classify ISPs as 'common carriers'" after the D.C. U.S. Court of Appeals "struck down the Federal Communications Commission's open internet rules." The White House statement indicates that "absent net neutrality, the Internet could turn into a high-priced private toll road that would be inaccessible to the next generation of visionaries," but notes that "The FCC is an independent agency. Chairman Wheeler has publicly pledged to use the full authority granted by Congress to maintain a robust, free and open Internet — a principle that this White House vigorously supports.""
