President sends strong signal to FCC's Tom Wheeler to protect net neutrality.

"President Obama said late Thursday that he was "unequivocally committed" to net neutrality and firmly opposed to any proposal that would let companies buy an Internet fast lane to deliver their content more quickly to consumers. The statements [...] gave a strong signal to Mr. Obama's Democratic appointees on the Federal Communications Commission that he wants them to heed the overwhelming public sentiment expressed in 3.7 million comments sent to the commission in recent months concerning a set of rules proposed by the commission meant to protect net neutrality. A large majority of those comments, solicited by the commission, came out against Internet fast lanes - a practice known as paid prioritization."
