US Ambassador: No, net neutrality will NOT allow the UN to seize control of the internet from us

An op-ed in the Washington Post by policy wonk Larry Downes last week argued: “The public utility approach would provide opponents of a free and open Internet ample opportunity to call out US efforts as hypocritical, unnecessarily undermining our authority.”

Comcast also argued in a filing with the FCC that “reclassification could have broader implications globally and weaken the United States’ positions regarding international Internet regulation.” New rules “could undermine the United States’ resistance to greater oversight of the Internet by the UN’s International Telecommunication Union.”
