White House: Yes, we still support net neutrality
Shortly after net neutrality rules bit the dust when a federal appeals court rejected them, activists petitioned the White House to direct the FCC to re-regulate Internet lines under rules that were written for phone networks.
Obama administration officials wouldn't go that far, but today the White House responded to the petition (which got more than 105,000 signatures).
