President Obama's call for net neutrality could drive the Federal Communications Commission to regulate broadband service like a utility.

The FCC is an independent agency that will establish its own rules.

His proposals also include a recommendation to mostly ban paid-for "fast-lane" access.

However, industry groups that represent ISPs criticized the plan. "Such a move would set the industry back decades, and threaten the private sector investment that is critically needed to ensure that the network can meet surging demand," the Telecommunications Industry Association in a statement.

"This would be a radical reversal that would harm investment and innovation, as today's immediate stock market reaction demonstrates," said Comcast Corp. executive vice president David Cohen in a statement.

Shares of ISPs fell Monday morning following the announcement. Comcast fell 3.75% to $53.07.

Cohen argued that Congress should be the body to enact new net neutrality rules. "The Internet has not just appeared by accident or gift – it has been built by companies like ours investing and building networks and infrastructure. The policy the White House is encouraging would jeopardize this engine for job creation and investment as well as the innovation cycle that the Internet has generated," he said.

Is the GOP wrong or we about to turn the internet into a government run disaster? The GOP is being attacked in the same fashion they were attacked for alerting the country about Obamacare.

If the Obummer and his pals are successful at putting the internet into government hands, it could easily kill the democrat party for a generation.

I have to disagree. There is VERY little I support Obuma on but net neutrality is one thing I do.

Unless you own a ISP you should to.

This is one of the things Repubs have it wrong on. But in the end they are just supporting big business, so I guess in their heart they feel they are right. Even if it does mean screwing over the normal person using the internet.

Does not matter.

Its more government intervention in business. That is never, ever a good thing.

If you are saying that democrats never support big business, then I just have to call you delusional.
