– What the big telcos, AT&T and Verizon, are planning to do and say to prevent passage of any new net neutrality legislation
– How Google and consumer groups Free Press and Public Knowledge are teaming up to educate the public and regulators on why they think there is a need for baseline net neutrality rules
