Posted on May 26, 2006
The panel recommended a version of the Net neutrality bill that would bar telecom companies from charging premium fees for Web companies that sell video and other content.
This is far from a full victory, but it’s a step in that direction.

A Congressional committee has backed a plan that would bar major telcos and cable companies from charging Web services companies to accept their traffic, giving the so-called Net neutrality campaign a welcome boost.
The U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee voted 20-13 to recommend a version of the Net neutrality bill to the full House that contains an outright prohibition on charging premium access fees for Web companies that sell video and other content.
