President Barack Obama wants to reclassify the internet as a utility, he said in a new statement released by the White House on Monday.

That would allow the Federal Communications Committee to enforce heavier restrictions on it and protect net neutrality.  “The time has come for the FCC to recognize that broadband service is of the same importance and must carry the same obligations as so many of the other vital services do,” Obama said.

Obama is officially supporting net neutrality, writing that internet service providers should not be allowed to control or “pick winners and losers” in the online marketplace.

Obama’s statement comes after the FCC said back in April that it was working on a new set of rules that would allow internet service providers to treat web traffic differently, potentially prioritizing large companies.
