Net neutrality fans rejoice: The FCC will reclassify broadband

The Federal Communications Commission plans to announce tomorrow that it will seek to reclassify broadband as a transport service, opening up a way for the agency to enforce network neutrality recommendations and implement some aspects of the National Broadband Plan.

Wa-hoo! This is a huge and welcome step forward. expect the big ISPs to fight this, but the FCC is on our side (for a change!)
