FCC to support net neutrality

The Federal Communications Commission plans to announce tomorrow that it will seek to reclassify broadband as a transport service, opening up a way for the agency to enforce network neutrality recommendations and implement some aspects of the National Broadband Plan.

This is a huge move in the right direction. Net neutrality means the carriers don’t get to say what passes through their networks. We don’t need a walled garden on the net, it needs to stay open and free.
