Comcast today said it supports President Obama’s entire network neutrality proposal—except for that part about reclassifying broadband as a utility.
“What is remarkable is that if you compare the President’s articulation of his vision for net neutrality as set forth in the White House talking points released yesterday afternoon, we are on the record as agreeing with every point,” Comcast Executive VP David Cohen wrote in a blog post titled, “Surprise! We agree with the president’s principles on net neutrality.” The areas of agreement between Comcast and Obama are as follows, he wrote:

  • Free and open Internet. We agree—and that is our practice.
  • No blocking. We agree—and that is our practice.
  • No throttling. We agree—and that is our practice.
  • Increased transparency. We agree—and that is our practice.
  • No paid prioritization. We agree—and that is our practice.
