Obama shows support for net neutrality

President Obama said that he is in favor of net neutrality on a video announcement recently. He urged the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to take up the strongest possible rules to protect net neutrality, the principle that says Internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all internet traffic equally.
In short, he is suggesting that the FCC recognises access to the Internet as a basic utility, and something that Americans have a basic right to. This means no blocking, no throttling, more transparency and no paid prioritization.

Interesting development in the US.
