We never like to stray too close to politics here in the forums, because that's not what we are about, but this is important tech-related news that needed to be shared. Apparently, there was a very recently proposed bill (this week) that would have overturned the recently passed Net Neutrality law that facilitates the FCC's Open Internet rules. Luckily, the U.S. Senate just defeated this new bill, so the Net Neutrality law will still go into effect on November 20th as is.

According to the report, Verizon is likely to file a lawsuit to challenge the Net Neutrality law, but there are several companies that are supporters of the Open Internet initiative, including Google, Amazon, Netflix, Facebook, and eBay, among others.

Thanks for the tip, ilikemoneygreen!
