Obama's call for Net Neutrality spells trouble for Time Warner Cable-Comcast deal


The fight for an open Internet just got a lot stronger, as President Obama waded into the fray and issued a call for utility-style regulation to limit the power of phone and cable companies.

The president isn’t likely to get his way entirely, with strong opposition already coming from those industries and Republicans in Congress; but Obama's move also reduces the odds that regulators will approve Comcast's (CMCSA) $45 billion take over bid for Time Warner Cable (TWC).

NET NEUTRALITY —
Net neutrality supporters plan nationwide protests on December 7
One site has enabled 180,000 calls to Congress in a single day

TIMOTHY B. LEE

The Obama administration's network neutrality rules are in danger, and the activists who helped get those regulations enacted aren't giving up without a fight. They're planning a series of protests nationwide to pressure the Federal Communications Commission to reject Chairman Ajit Pai's plan to roll back network neutrality protections.

No, the FCC is not killing the Internet
By Brendan Carr November 30

... The FCC’s Dec. 14 vote will correct the agency’s two-year detour — and its subsequent harms to innovation and investment — while restoring the authority of the nation’s premier consumer-protection agency over ISPs and ensuring that Americans continue to benefit from a free and open Internet.
