Massachusetts Proposes Net Neutrality Law To Call Out Bad ISPs

Although I am definitely in favor of any laws that call out bad ISPs, I highly doubt this is going to go anywhere.

Lawmakers in the state Senate have proposed a bill (S2160) that would create an "internet service provider registry" to track whether broadband and wireless providers adhere to policies that keep the internet open and neutral. That includes ensuring that content isn't blocked and that access to sites and services aren't slowed down or throttled. ISPs that keep consumer data private and meet net neutrality guidelines can get a "Massachusetts Net Neutrality and Consumer Privacy Seal" of approval.
