Senator Pushes Comcast on Net Neutrality

A top Senate Democrat is taking aim at Comcast over net neutrality, arguing that its previous commitments to an open Internet won't be enough to protect consumers — particularly if its merger with Time Warner Cable goes through. In a letter to the company, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) said Comcast should pledge to avoid "paid prioritization" schemes that would speed up some Web site traffic over others.
