FCC signals it will adopt Obama net neutrality plan . . .  Federal regulators appear to be on the brink of claiming expansive powers over Internet access to protect the principle of net neutrality. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler indicated that he’s in favor of President Obama’s net-neutrality proposal, which would put broadband Internet service in the same legal category as landline telephones.

Proponents of the regulatory maneuver claim it’s the only way the FCC can enact strong net neutrality rules that can hold up in court. Net neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers should treat all traffic equally. Internet providers and Republicans warn that Title II would turn the Internet into a utility, hampering investment and leaving everyone with worse service.  National Journal
