The FCC supports net neutrality

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski outlined The Federal Communications Commission’s position on net neutrality in a landmark speech this past Monday.

The speech is remarkable, because it’s in almost complete opposition of the telco industry heavyweights’ position. None of the big telecommunications companies want net neutrality, and have been working against it in an orchestrated manner for a long time.

The speech is a manifesto for openness, transparency and promoting innovation. Everything Big Telco hates.

A vote on making the positions outlined in the speech into FCC rules is said to be taking place in October.
