Senate Tries Net Neutrality, Again

After recent concessions for net neutrality by AT&T, "Senators Byron Dorgan, a North Dakota Democrat, and Olympia Snowe, a Maine Republican, introduced the Internet Freedom Preservation Act Tuesday." This is a repeat of the bill that failed last May in a republican controlled Congress.

CNet describes net neutrality as, "...the idea that network operators such as AT&T and Verizon should be prohibited from prioritizing any content or services that travel across their pipes..."

If we are lucky, this will get passed this time through.
