FCC Chairman Reportedly Moving Forward with Real Net Neutrality Protections

http://www.freepress.net/press-release/106781/fcc-chairman-reportedly-moving-forward-real-net-neutrality-protections?akid=5081.10435319.LciAgW&rd=1&t=3

Just when it seemed like the internet was about to be thrown to the wolves, this happens and the FCC also redefines what broadband is. If he can pull this off too, the internet will thrive for years to come.

A truly free internet is the major social force for positive change in today's world, so it's nice to know some in power agree.

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler: This Is How We Will Ensure Net Neutrality

http://www.wired.com/2015/02/fcc-chairman-wheeler-net-neutrality/?utm_source=howtogeek&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter

Tom Wheeler may be the most important person right now in turning things around and insuring the internet remain vital and free. It's so nice to have an advocate for consumers so highly placed in government, especially since it's also increasingly rare.

And still more good news, maybe. The FCC is striving to overturn state laws restricting local municipalities from expanding internet service. http://arstechnica.com/business/2015/02/fcc-overturns-state-laws-that-protect-isps-from-local-competition/?utm_source=howtogeek&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter It's new ground so it remains to be seen if this will stand or not.
