The Internet Freedom Preservation Act Returns

Comments

Congress has brought back net neutrality legislation, as described by Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND) in this You Tube video.

The legislation states that all content, applications and services must be freely accessible through broadband providers. Also it requires cable and telecom providers to offer broadband access as a standalone service, not only bundled with voice or video.

The year-end merger of AT&T/BellSouth was approved with a net neutrality concession, agreeing to freely accessible content for the next 2.5 years.

There are two political sites worth checking out. Supporters advocate a level playing field on Save The Internet. Dissenters say regulation stifles innovation at Hands Off the Internet.

Also read straighter reporting from The New York Times, Broadcasting & Cable, and CNET.
