Net neutrality is shorthand for the concept that Internet users should be in control of what content they view and what applications they use on the Internet.
The Federal Communications Commission announced that it would propose new net neutrality rules after a Federal Appeals court struck down the commission’s rules adopted in 2010.
On February 3, legislation was introduced that would restore net neutrality rules struck down last month by a federal appeals court.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled January 14 that key elements of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) 2010 Open Internet Order are invalid.
On Dec. 21, 2010, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted network neutrality rules, taking an important step in a policy making process that has been underway since 2005. Network neutrality is the idea that internet service providers (ISPs) may not hinder or discriminate against lawful content flowing through their network.
