Net neutrality supporters disrupt FCC meeting

IT World report that approximately a dozen protestors calling on the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to pass net neutrality rules disrupted the commission’s meeting for a short time Thursday. Protestors shouting and carrying signs interrupted the beginning of the FCC’s meeting as commissioners were hearing from staff members, teachers and administrators about proposed changes to the agency’s E-Rate program, which subsidizes broadband service for schools and libraries.
