Prseident Obama Net Neutrality View

PRESIDENT_OBAMA1

“I personally, the position of my administration, as well as a lot of the companies here, is that you don’t want to start getting a differentiation in how accessible the Internet is to different users. You want to leave it open so the next Google and the next Facebook can succeed.” -President Obama

More than any other invention of our time, the Internet has unlocked possibilities we could just barely imagine a generation ago. And here’s a big reason we have seen such incredible growth and innovation: Most Internet providers have treated Internet traffic equally. That’s a principle known as ” net neutrality”and it says that an entrepreneur’s fledgling company should have the same chance to succeed as established corporations, and that access to a high school student’s blog should not be unfairly slowed down to make way for advertisers with more money.

The FCC just voted in favor of a strong net neutrality rule to keep the Internet open and free. That happened because millions of Americans across the country didn’t just care about this issue: You stood up and made your voices heard, whether by adding your names to petitions, submitting public comments, or talking with the people you know about why this matters. Read a special thank-you message from the President, then learn more about how we got to where we are today.

February 26, 2015
Today’s FCC decision will protect innovation and create a level playing field for the next generation of entrepreneurs–and it wouldn’t have happened without Americans like you.
More than 4 million people wrote in to the FCC, overwhelmingly in support of a free and fair internet. Countless others spoke out on social media, petitioned their government, and stood up for what they believe.
I ran for office because I believed that nothing can stand in the way of millions of voices calling for change. That’s the backbone of our democracy–and you’ve proven that this timeless principle is alive and well in our digital age.
So to all the people who participated in this conversation, I have a simple message.
Thank you,
Barack Obama
