President Obama on Monday reiterated his commitment to net neutrality, and criticized companies that are trying to derail the FCC’s efforts on the issue.

“I’m a big believer in net neutrality,” Obama said during an interview conducted via YouTube that consisted of questions submitted by users following his State of the Union address last week. “I campaigned on this. I continue to be a strong supporter of it.”

Obama pointed to net neutrality rules proposed last year by FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski that would prevent ISPs from discriminating against particular applications or Web sites, and require them to be more transparent about their network management.
