On MTV in 2007, Joe Niederberger, a small business owner and former Internet engineer in New Jersey, asked Barack Obama a question about Net Neutrality. And he got a clear promise to protect Internet freedom. Now, that Internet freedom is under attack. Obamaai??i??s new FCC Chair ai??i?? a cable industry lobbyist — threatens to break that promise.

With America having some of the slowest, most expensive Internet access in the world, the FCC should be making the Internet better — not worse.
The new FCC Chair should carry out President Obamaai??i??s promise and support Net Neutrality. If he wonai??i??t, he should step down so the president can appoint someone who will stand up for Internet freedom and make the Internet better for all of us.
We must maintain Net Neutrality. Please make good on your promise President Obama.
What will it mean to treat the internet like a public utility? I am not so sure I want to support this because of the history of public utilities, which have not always been run as if they their intention was in the public’s interest.
Why can’t we just leave the internet with no controls at all? And make laws whose purpose is to ensure that lack of control?
