FCC ready to step in for Net Neutrality


Net Neutrality is important, and the FCC is rattling its sabers at ISPs like Comcast who’ve taken part in “traffic shaping” schemes, or favoring certain packets over others.

At a hearing at Harvard, FCC Chairman Kevin Martin said, “The commission is ready, willing and able to step in if necessary to correct any practices that are ongoing today. It’s tough talk, but I’ve met the Chairman and he’s a no-nonsense kind of guy.

Hopefully it doesn’t come to litigation, but if it does, the FCC will win. Then our cable bills may go up slightly, but our data will be safe.
