Obama, Congress Pack Net Neutrality, Broadband Into Stimulus

Written by Daniel

House Democrats and the President push stimulus bill which contains provisions for the expansion of broadband networks and the preservation of net neutrality

Barack Obama and House Democrats talked big when it came to broadband expansion and net neutrality. Apparently, they made good on their promises and packaged net neutrality and broadband expansion provisions into an $819B USD emergency stimulus package. [Front page...]

There's a number of things in this package that I'm not wild about, starting with the total cost. But I'm glad that net neutrality is finally on the table.
