Yes, it’s true. Major ISPs in the US (such as Comcast, Time Warner, AT&T, and Verizon) claim that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) aims to violate their First Amendment rights to make a profit because the FCC advocates Network Neutrality — the freedom from restrictions of information on the Internet, such as the speed of service to certain sites or access to online content, applications, services, and data.
Without excellent (and free) video phone service from Skype, I wouldn’t have been able to celebrate Christmas with my family this year. Net Neutrality will prove to be a vital force in the future not only for how we interact but for how we do business and how we are able to access knowledge. Join companies like Google and Microsoft in supporting Net Neutrality.
