Save The Internet?

Some members of Congress are pushing a law that would abandon "Network
Neutrality". Network neutrality prevents companies like AT&T, Verizon and
Comcast from deciding which Web sites work best for you — based on what site
pays them the most. Ok, so that's what the Save The Internet Coalition says.
Others argue that the real debate is over the management of private networks and
the cost of providing service. Essentially, it's a battle between those who
built the networks that Web consumers use to access the Web with those who use
them to provide a service.
Synopsis from the SaveTheInternet Coalition Website:
"Net Neutrality allows everyone to compete on a level playing field and is the
reason that the Internet is a force for economic innovation, civic participation
and free speech. The Save The Internet Coalition believes that the Internet is a
crucial engine for economic growth and democratic discourse and are working to
urge Congress to take steps now to preserve network neutrality to ensures that
the Internet remains open to innovation and progress."
