In less then three weeks the Federal Communications Commission will vote on a plan to protect the Internet, as we know it.
FCC Chair Tom Wheeler is presenting President Obama’s proposal to the FCC on Feb. 26. This plan is intended to keep the Internet from allowing “Internet Service Providers to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas,” according to President Obama’s statement, which is posted on whitehouse.gov.
This position on the Internet is generally viewed as “Net Neutrality.” Basically it means that a high school student’s blog can get the same treatment and access as a corporate website. Net Neutrality would also keep Internet Service Providers from blocking sites.
