House Republicans jump into net neutrality debate

We've written before about the FCC's most recent (and troubling) proposal for net neutrality.

Now comes this letter to FCC Chair Tom Wheeler, signed by the four top House Republicans, opposing any attempt to reclassify the internet in such a way as to promote net neutrality. Doing so, the letter argues, "threatens to slow job creation and jeopardizes our economic recovery." As the Legal Times notes, the issue is already dividing the FCC along partisan lines. Meanwhile, the story explains, "Consumer advocates such as Free Press urge the FCC to reclassify broadband as a more heavily regulated Title II service, akin to a telephone company."
