 End Quote

“Broadband is a more advanced technology than phone service, but in the 21st century it performs the same essential function. Consumers and businesses cannot live without this vital connection to each other and to the world around them. Accordingly, it would be appropriate for the FCC to reclassify broadband to reflect the vital role the Internet plays in carrying our most important information and our greatest ideas.”

U.S Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) in a July 15th letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) calling for net neutrality and classifying Internet Service Providers (ISPs) as “common carriers”.  Net neutrality will  protect consumers from prohibitively high rates for high-speed internet service
