Fair Access To Internet At Stake

Congress Currently debating "Net Neutrality".... our free access to the Internet. Currently our free access to the net is being threatened by telecommunications companies who want to regulate the internet, keeping the fast lanes for themselves and for their biggest customers, while the rest of us get relagated to slower communication lines. They basically want to make billions off of this by double charging us for internet speeds that we have already paid for.

Reasonable and positive legislation seems to be working its way through the Congress...but final legislation is still far off. Only the House of Representatives have taken up a vote so far. The Senate has not yet passed legislation.

Listen to a great discussion from June, 1 about the "Net Neutrality" issue. Taken from the “On Point” Public Radio program. Click the audio options at top of page.
