President Obama today ratcheted up his support for a free and open Internet by recommending a specific plan of action to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The FCC is currently deciding on new “net neutrality” rules or, whether to allow folks to continue using the Internet as they’ve always used it. That means open and free, without service providers charging higher prices for access to “premium” content for example (think about cable companies charging extra to watch HBO versus a network channel). In order to keep the status quo, Obama suggests regulating broadband like a utility–the option also pushed by consumer advocacy groups. Listen to Obama’s two-minute pitch above. The FCC has already received more than 4 million public comments supporting net neutrality.
