The FCC Approves Net Neutrality

Great news. The FCC approved net neutrality by a 3 to 2 vote. In a surprising move, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler voted with the majority. Wheeler is a former Comcast lobbyist.

"The action that we take today is an irrefutable reflection of the principle that no one, whether government or corporate, should control free open access to the internet," FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said prior to the vote.

"The internet is simply too important to allow broadband providers to be the ones making the rules," he added.

The best explanation I have seen on the importance of net neutrality was done by John Oliver.
