FCC Approves Net Neutrality Rules For ‘Open Internet’ : The Two-Way : NPR.

The Federal Communications Commission approved the policy known as net neutrality by a 3-2 vote at its Thursday meeting, with FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler saying the policy will ensure “that no one — whether government or corporate — should control free open access to the Internet.”

The Open Internet Order helps to decide an essential question about how the Internet works, requiring service providers to be a neutral gateway instead of handling different types of Internet traffic in different ways — and at different costs.

“Today is a red-letter day,” Wheeler said Thursday.

The dissenting votes came from Michael O’Rielly and Ajut Pai, Republicans who warned that the FCC was overstepping its authority and interfering in commerce to solve a problem that doesn’t exist. They also complained that the measure’s 300-plus pages weren’t publicly released or openly debated.

  1. Annnnd there goes the internet :/

    It sounds so wonderful until you read what’s actually in the regulations…which we can’t. Sound familiar?
