    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).

    FCC releases final draft of 'Restoring Internet Freedom,' which would not do that

    The FCC yesterday announced a December 14 vote on "Restoring Internet Freedom," an order that, far from restoring freedom to the internet, would allow it to be restricted in new and harmful ways.

    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.
