US House Of Representatives Are Trying To Block Net Neutrality

On a rampage against anything that remotely smells like regulation, the US House of Representatives have voted to block funding for the FCC’s Net Neutrality plan, which would ensure that ISPs couldn’t restrict certain users from accessing select content.

Of course, this would have to pass through senate and survive President Obama’s desk, so the chance of this becoming a bill is unlikely. But the anti-tech sentiment coming from one half of our congress makes me all sadface. [Reuters]
