Open Internet Coalition – Letter of Support to FCC

The Open Internet Coalition sent Letter to FCC Chairman Genachowski Supporting Open Internet Rules.

The letter is signed by 24 CEOs and founders representing the world’s leading Internet and technology companies (eg Facebook, Sony, Amazon, eBay, Twitter, and Google) and they say their support the effort to protect an open Internet.

Wiki: Genachowski proposed broad new rules prohibiting Internet providers–both wireless and wireline–from selectively blocking or slowing Internet traffic.
Genachowski proposed that the FCC formalize its four principles of network openness. To encourage broadband deployment and preserve and promote the open and interconnected nature of the public Internet, consumers are entitled:
* to access the lawful Internet content of their choice.
* to run applications and use services of their choice, subject to the needs of law enforcement.
* to connect their choice of legal devices that do not harm the network.
* to competition among network providers, application and service providers, and content providers.
