Obama supports 'net neutrality' plan
November 11 , 2014
The US President Barack Obama has said that open internet access ought to be seen as a basic right for all Americans, according to media reports.
Coming out in favor of the concept of ‘net neutrality’ — that is, all data moving through cables with identical priority — he said he was against ‘paid prioritization,’ where services are slowed if a fee is not paid.
Obama said internet service providers cannot be permitted to “restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers.”
