Skype tells the FCC to require net neutrality.

,----[ Quote ]
| VOICE OVER IP AND CHAT OUTFIT Skype has
| been pressing its case in favour of net
| neutrality to the US Federal Communications
| Commision (FCC).
|
| Skype, which is based on its own
| proprietary technology, depends on net
| neutrality to survive. If the telcos and
| some ISPs get their way, Skype punters will
| probably be identified as filesharers and
| get throttled to within an inch of their
| lives.
|
| Skype told the FCC that net neutrality was
| "about growing the broadband ecosystem and
| preserving a borderless, open Internet" and
| that it would "promote investment, jobs and
| innovation."

| front ends, including those for mobile devices.
