Anne Broache of CNET has a good article up about Obama indicating during the Mtv and MySpace forum that he’s in favor of Net neutrality. This is nothing earth-shattering, of course, as all of the Democrats are in favor of an equal opportunity Internet, but it sounds like Obama has a good grasp of the concept, citing that companies like Google might not exist if it weren’t for Net neutrality.
Broache also noted that, while Net neutrality is not a “make-or-break issue akin to healthcare, immigration or the Iraq War,” it still holds some heat. As the question was posed by MoveOn, I would venture to second that assertion since they wouldn’t waste their bandwidth on a question of little importance. As someone who works from a remote office and who has used everything from 300 baud to a T3, I say speed does matter and anyone who says otherwise is just selling something.
