    Yes it is. There is no legal reason why apple nor att should be blocking this. They are just afraid they will loose some money on text messaging packages which come to find out, texting doesn’t cost cell phone companies any money since they run over the regular 1xx. They don’t even use data. I am Glad!!!

    Check this page out:

    “The Internet Freedom Preservation Act of 2009 was just introduced in Congress. This important legislation would make Net Neutrality the law once and for all.”

    Everyone should visit that page and sign the petition.

    I’m concerned the bill lacks teeth. From my brief understanding (and no, I didn’t read the bill), it simply mandates that the FCC tackle the issue, and set up town halls across the country within a year for public comment.

    It does give FCC the power, but remember what happens when direct orders aren’t given. You wind up with something terrible like the DMCA.

    Well it has to be better than nothing. I’d like a full and clear net neutrality bill too, but this is at least a start. And I should also say that I know absolutely nohting about the bill. I just know that what we have right now is so bad that AT&T and Apple thought they could actually get away with banning legitimate apps (and they very well might get away with it) so this bill has to be better than the status quo.
