Sen. Wyden drops his net neutrality bill

Today, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) introduced a bill mandating network neutrality today. Without it, companies like Verizon and Comcast will begin to create a tiered, even walled internet, where content providers that can pay for the delivery of their bits will get speedier access (or any access) to ISPs' customers.

In another article, Wyden talks in detail about his concerns about the future of the internet and what he hopes the bill can accomplish.
