Net neutrality amendment fails

Posted by Kristi Heim at 2:14 PM

An amendment to add a network neutrality guarantee to the telecom bill failed today in the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee. The 11-11 vote was split right down the middle along party lines, with the exception of Maine Republican Olympia Snowe, who co-sponsored the amendment. It would have prevented Internet access providers from giving priority to any particular content or services along their networks. See our previous story here.
