Net Neutrality

Hmm. The US House of Representatives voted last week to overturn the FCC implemented net neutrality rules.  The December 2010 rules, according to this article on Wired ” prohibit cable, fiber and DSL broadband companies from blocking websites, allow users to use the software and devices of their choice, and require companies to be transparent if they use traffic-management software. Mobile-internet companies would have to abide by a lesser standard, but are prohibited from blocking VOIP applications like Skype or video services like YouTube or Netflix that compete with their own offerings.”

President Obama has promised to veto any legislation reversing the rules.

What do you think, pals?
