Dems Unveil Measure to Ban Internet Fast Lanes

Congressional Democrats have unveiled new legislation that would ban Internet service providers from charging media companies for faster speeds. The measure from Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont and Rep. Doris Matsui of California would prevent so-called "paid prioritization," which ties Internet speeds to extra fees. This would include a recent deal that saw Netflix pay the cable giant Comcast for faster service than other content providers.
