humm - somewhat skeptical but not seen any information on the actual thing they are voting on,.

if it is about 'transparency' - i.e. forcing ISPs to be explicit about what they are blocking access to then it sounds fairly harmless,. you can choose an ISP based on that information,. rather than signing up and find they are blocking all P2P for instance?

Would help if they posted what it is they are actually fighting for rather than a load of mumbo jumbo.
Is this net neutrality ?

I think it was/is the equivalent of what we have the D E B basically ,trying to censor the inter webs and on the say so of rights holders based of copyright infringement the government (the last one) being in ca hoots with the bpi ect but the lord Monrgelscum's of this world don't do these thing's for no reward do they? they even resorted to rushing /pushing it through on the last day wash up, when they knew it would not get full scrutiny of mp's not that most have a clue about how broadband actually works , or what those changes would/could mean in the future, we ain't only talking about copy right infringement here, that will only be the start
