FCC chair highlights net neutrality push in Campbell

Barbara van Schewick, professor with the Stanford Law School, described net neutrality as “we the people” getting the choice about what to do online.

“We get to decide what sites we visit, what apps we want to use, what videos to watch, and the companies we pay to get online don’t get to interfere with our choices,” she said. “They don’t get to block websites or services…They don’t get to speed-up or slow-down services they like or don’t like.”

Net neutrality has been supported by both Democratic and Republican administrations, van Schewick added. 

Rosenworcel said she wants to make sure that net neutrality is the law of the land.
