Say goodbye to Speakeasy

>From today's Benton Foundation telecom news summary -

of a Policy Statement regarding the principles of Net Neutrality 
is an appropriate first step in ensuring that all persons 
continue to enjoy the unfettered ability to access and use the 
Internet in a lawful manner without being impeded by broadband 
network operators," Rep Rick Boucher (D-VA) said. "However, the 
next step must be taken by the Congress in codifying the Net 
Neutrality principles and bestowing on the FCC the clear 
authority to enforce the principles." He said the FCC should be 
able to "prohibit operators from unreasonably favoring themselves 
over their affiliates in the provision of Internet services."
