Obama speaks out on Network Neutrality

President Barack Obama has spoken out on the topic of Net Neutrality, and
he advocates for an Internet that is free and open. That's a bold move in this political environment!

It would seem that the President is interested in keeping a free and open internet without sweetheart deals. Now if only the FCC listens to the President and the many other Americans who have commented on this matter. Now, what about the other big, Internet-heavy nations that enjoy the benefits of being connected. Who will be the next to speak up? And does Obama's opinion mean the debate will swing in the direction of consumer benefit, or will the corporations have their say?

My point exactly. Monopolies are never good for consumers. (Except maybe AT&T in the early decades. But even in that case, who knows what would have happened with multiple competitors? Very possibly faster, but likely more chaotic, innovation.)
