[bbc] Plans for the future of the internet in the US are "under siege" by powerful interests, warns the Federal Communications Commission.
The warning was given by Commissioner Michael Copps as the agency prepares for a vote on its plans for the development of broadband in the US.
The plan followed a court decision that the FCC had no authority to stop ISPs slowing traffic to some users
The ruling was a blow to a central tenet of the agency's broadband plan.
That plan aims to to provide every American in the country with high speed internet access by 2020.
Enshrined in the FCC plan is strong backing for so-called "net neutrality" principles. This means that all web data is treated equally and stops ISPs favouring some traffic in preference to others.
