SFDebate Asks: Should We Support Net Neutrality?

Tue, Jan 18 2011 - 7:00pm

SF Debate asks; Will the new FCC net neutrality rules ruin the internet as we know it?

The FCC just released new rules and regulations on Internet neutrality – the controversy over whether service providers such as Verizon and AT&T can block or slow down access to web sites and applications that compete with sites and services favored by the providers. Should the Internet be maintained as a neutral database of information? Or does Internet access, a privately provided service, need to be regulated more heavily? Has the Internet already been effectively neutered? Come to the SF Debate meet-up  and let us hear your thoughts on the legal evolution of the 'Net, which President Obama has declared "perhaps the most open network in history, and we have to keep it that way."
