Obama supports 'net neutrality' plan

  • 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.”
