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."
