"ACLU Report Urges Cities and Towns to Provide Internet Service as a Utility"

The ACLU has released "ACLU Report Urges Cities and Towns to Provide Internet Service as a Utility."

Here's an excerpt:

The American Civil Liberties Union released a report today calling on local governments to pursue providing broadband to residents to help counteract federal rollbacks of net neutrality and internet privacy protections. . . .

The report includes recommendations for policies that should accompany public internet systems so they are consistent with privacy, net neutrality, and free speech principles. The guidelines include enacting strict anti-censorship rules and establishing clear oversight processes.

The report also outlines ways for municipal systems to serve all residents equally, regardless of neighborhoods' income or racial make-up.

Read the report: The Public Internet Option: How Local Governments Can Provide Network Neutrality, Privacy, and Access for All.
