Net Neutrality Links
I’m adding this link to the Net Neutrality Page.
On the issue of Net Neutrality, companies like AT&T, Verizon, BellSouth and Comcast outspent public interest advocates on a scale of 500 to 1 Ã¢â¬â pushing Congress to remove the longstanding nondiscrimination rules that enabled the Internet to become the greatest vehicle for free speech and economic innovation.

As much as anything, the election sent a message to Congress to stop currying favor with moneyed interests and return to governing in the public interest.
Near the top of this new agenda will be restoring Net Neutrality. Many in Congress came to this realization after receiving more than a million letters from concerned citizens urging them to maintain a free and open Internet.
Whereas before, the phone companies had been confident that Congress would simply sign-off on industry-written legislation. Now Ã¢â¬â as the 109th Congress comes to a close Ã¢â¬â no member can vote with the telecom cartel without feeling the full heat of public scrutiny.
