Net neutrality for some, large ISPs for others!

The good news: The President of the United States has endorsed Net Neutrality, encouraging the FCC to establish rules that would ensure that Internet providers can’t filter, slow down, or play favorites with Internet traffic.

The bad news: The President of the United States is a polarizing figure, his party has just lost a mid-term election, and his emboldened political opponents have decided to stake out the opposite position.

[Update: A great explanation of net neutrality from The Oatmeal.]

[I am not a member of any political party, I vote in every election, and I think net neutrality is a good policy for consumers and entrepreneurs and just about everyone else except the ISP monopolies.]
