Net neutrality fight isn't over yet

Usually when you see a crowd outside the Verizon retail store on Boylston Street, it means Apple's rolling out a new smartphone. But the group that gathered outside the Boston store last Thursday was much bigger than the one iPhones usually attract, and made up of people who were anything but happy.

The crowd of about 100 had come to protest, not mainly against Verizon, but rather the Federal Communications Commission. On Thursday it's expected to reverse the Obama administration's policy on "Net neutrality," the principle that all data moving over the Internet should be treated equally by broadband providers like Verizon. Similar protests were held Thursday in dozens of other US cities.
