Net Neutrality Being Examined by FTC

"Chairwoman Deborah Platt Majoras on Monday also called on lawmakers to be
cautious about passing a Net neutrality law, which could prohibit broadband
providers such as AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp. from giving their own
Internet content top priority, or from charging Web sites additional fees
for faster service. [...] 'While I am sounding cautionary notes about new
legislation, let me make clear that if broadband providers engage in
anticompetitive conduct, we will not hesitate to act using our existing
authority,' she said. 'But I have to say, thus far, proponents of Net
neutrality regulation have not come to us to explain where the market is
failing or what anticompetitive conduct we should challenge.'"
