San Francisco mayor Ed Lee and 16 other cities' mayors have called on the Federal Communications Commission to make network neutrality a real thing.

Today, the U.S. Conference of Mayors unanimously adopted the resolution, which calls on the FCC "to enshrine principles of transparency and non-discrimination into future regulations about how the Internet works."

According to the resolution, "the US Conference of Mayors supports securing a commitment to transparency and the free flow of information over the Internet, including no blocking of lawful websites and no unreasonable discrimination of lawful network traffic." It also calls upon the White House and Congress to support these aims.
