U.S. President Barack Obama speaks during his meeting with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott in Beijing November 10, 2014.
Obama urged the FCC to prohibit so-called paid prioritization, deals in which content providers would pay Internet companies to ensure smooth delivery of traffic.
He said the FCC should reclassify consumer broadband service to be regulated more like a public utility.
