EFF considers 2015 a decent one for net neutrality

Jeremy Gillula has a piece for Electronic Frontier Foundation, reviewing the world of network neutrality debates.  It notes that in early 2015 it applauded the FCC’s decision to classify “retail broadband Internet” as a “telecommunications service”.  It also says it is supportive of the FCC in remaining a “giuoco piano” approach to enforcing do not track (DNT) rules.  (Well, the FCC can use the “Two Knights Defense”.)

EFF also supports caution in regulating LTE-U (unlicensed frequencies) which telecommunications companies want to expand for faster service, but at a cost.
