Today, 31 organizations from five continents around the globe (including OpenMedia) delivered a letter to key FCC decision-makers in the U.S. asking them to stop Big Telecom’s Internet slow lane plan – preserving so-called “net neutrality” rules. Given that the U.S. could set a strong global standard for what net neutrality rules can look like, the groups implored the FCC to vote in favor of the strong rules described by FCC Chairman and former telecom lobbyist Tom Wheeler on February 26 in Wired.
As we’ve discussed elsewhere, the devil still could be in the details when it comes to the rules described by FCC, so OpenMedia will reserve final judgment until we see the final product. In the meantime though, the FCC appears to be on the right path, and OpenMedia celebrates their move promise for the strongest rules possible (via Title II reclassification).
